    Default Placental blood clot question

    I just had a call from the hospital re my friend who is 19 weeks pregnant. She has a placental blood clot which was picked up when she went to the hospital with some bleeding. Does anyone have any info on this?

    Just to add to my original post - I just got an update from my friend and the ob expects the blood clot to "dissolve" gradually and things should be fine for the pregnancy to progress normally. She has to have strict bed rest in hospital for a week and then at home.

    I don't know of anyone personally who has had this, but I have heard of it before and how the PG can usually continue on normally if it is picked up and treatment commenced right away (which may include small doses of asprin to help dissolve the clot?). I'm not certain of my facts here.....just going purely from memory.

    Hi Melinda - I think she's already on some sort of asprin-like medication, but I'm not sure.
