Just wanted to see if anyone has or knows anyone who has been pregnant with low protein c. Protein C deficency is a rare blood disorder similar to Factor 5 Leiden. Basically, your blood is thicker and could develop a clot. I saw a specialist and was told that i could go on an injectable blood thinner every day until 6 weeks after delivery. There is no risk to the baby. However the data is not all that promising. If I dont take it, I have a 1% chance of developing a clot. There is no data to support what the chance drops to if you take the blood thinners. Anyone know about this? Just curious to hear what others decided to do.
