Hello everybody. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of information regarding having an extremity AVM and possible complications during birth (excluding the obvious blood clots). I’m 36 weeks pregnant and have been doing ok so far in regards to the AVM. My AVM is in my right knee. My knee and thigh are usually swollen but during the pregnancy my lower leg and ankle/foot have been extremely swollen as well (not my left leg tho). My dr was nervous about this and sent me to the ER to check for a blood clot. Thankfully I did not have one. I have pain in my right leg and can’t put pressure on it (this has been normal since I was a child). My concern is what do I have to watch out for when I give birth? Are there more possible complications other than blood clots (this i’m super nervous about). Do I have to worry about anything with the baby? I’m sorry about the questions but I haven’t been able to find any info on this with extremity AVMs and any help will be greatly appreciated!!
