Hello This is my first post on this forum and I'm just looking for some advice. I was diagnosed with a big DVT in my femoral vein on Monday at 32 weeks. I've had it since 29 weeks but it was undiagnosed in all that time despite several hospital/doctors visits (long story!). Anyway, I'm now out of hospital and have been injecting 80mg of clexane twice a day. I'm seeing a consultant next Tuesday about my future pregnancy care and labour options. My main concern is how the clexane will affect the birth. I have heard that you are supposed to stop injecting clexane as soon as you go into labour as it takes 12 hours to leave your system. The problem would be if my labour is less than 12 hours! Does anyone know what options they will give me? My baby is currently transverse/oblique so a section could be on the cards too. If anyone has experienced similar and can let me know how their pregnancy and labour progressed it would be great to talk to someone. I'm still having pain in my leg and can't stand or walk for very long but it's nothing in comparison to the agony I was in for the first few weeks while it was misdiagnosed. Look forward to hearing from some of you, thanks!
