Unhappy Blood clot and 11 weeks pregnant!

Hi my name is Christina and Im trying to figure out what is bothering me. Im 11 weeks pregnant and have 1 varicose vein in my left leg behind my knee and lately Ive had mild sciatica pain in that leg as well that even goes to my foot but not bad. Ive overly consumed myself that its a blood clot because even when my back isnt hurting I have a small area on my upper thigh that feels like a bruise when I press and my leg feels heavy at times which I was told its from the varicose vein and my OB blew it off and said it was a small one, like an inch long. I have no swelling, redness, and it doesnt hurt when I flex my foot so does this sound like a blood clot or something else? Please help Im so scared! I have a friend who had a blood clot a few months back and her leg was huge and red and mine doesnt appear to be, HELP!

Re: Blood clot and 11 weeks pregnant!

If you've shown it to your OB and he doesn't think there is anything to worry about then I would doubt it is a blood clot. Your OB must see tons of bad legs as varicose veins are common in pg so if he is not worried then I wouldn't be (but I'm a pretty laid back sort of person naturally) As you say it is nothing like your friends clot. Try not to worry as you don't want to worry your baby!
