Q: 

Why am I more vulnerable to blood clots during pregnancy?

A: Uterine veins dilate up to 60 times larger than normal during pregnancy. The hormone relaxin helps relax the artery beds, and estrogen causes the cells lining your arteries to secrete nitric oxide to open them up. This dilation insures that blood runs freely to and from your uterus - to supply nutrients, drain waste, and create the perfect little darling who soon will be trying to eat Tupperware containers. All of that arterial blood comes back to your heart by flowing into dilated veins. Because blood pressure is lower in veins than in arteries, and the walls of the veins are already loosened, there is a chance that blood can pool or...

A: Probably there is nothing wrong. blood clots during a period can be normal, although sometimes painful as they pass through the cervix. It''s good that you are seeing your doctor soon to get checked out, especially since you think you may have had a miscarriage. Sometimes, after a miscarriage, doctors perform a D & C (dilation and curretage) which is a scraping of the uterine walls.
