So at 22 weeks of pregnancy I got tested. And it's been confirmed, I too have this blood clotting disorder (thrombophilia). The possible effects- recurrent miscarriage (never had one) or stillbirth at any time. The cause- tiny blood clots that form in your cord/placenta that cut off oxygen to the baby. To hopefully avoid any risk to the baby I am now on a daily injection of blood thinner.
We are so very grateful to God that I was tested before something terrible happened to our little peanut. However, we won't be 100% in the clear until our little blessing arrives. As a mother, this is terrifying. I have been struggling not to be overcome with fear. This is certainly one of the biggest tests of faith the Lord has presented to me yet. But He is certainly telling us loud and clear, that above all else, we must put our trust and faith in Him and Him alone.
So we wait and we pray. And I'm very aware of every little movement this little one makes. We certainly covet your prayers- for baby's safety and mama's sanity these next 3 months. Oh, and that the next 3 months will pass quickly!
