Oh, I forgot to mention, I ended up not going into labour early and they just took me off the meds and induced me at 37.5 weeks and I was able to get my epidural. As I mentioned, I was on the blood thinners as a precaution that time though. Because you have a clot right now though it seems much more serious. Has the doctor talked with you about your condition?

I had been on blood thinners during my pregnancy because I had a DVT in my leg a year earlier. It was just as a precaution. I was advised by my OBGYN that it would be better to be taken off the blood thinners and induced by 37 weeks so that way if I chose to have an epidural I could. If I had gone into labour still being on the blood thinners, I wouldn't have been able to have an epidural because there is a huge risk of bleeding to death and needing a blood transfusion. Hope this helps somewhat.
