I have been having numbness in my left thigh since about 15 weeks pregnant now 24+6. Saw the midwife today who said prob just baby on nerves which I thought too so have never worried. When I got home my midwife called and said I need to go to DVT clinic tomorrow at 1pm incase I have a clot. She said it's unlikely but needs to be checked. I panic anyway so this will be a sleepless night sad
I have been on asprin since 12 weeks and u really didn't think it would be anything to worry about. I have no other DVT symptoms!
Has anyone ever had the numbness and it's been ok?

Hi bippity, I think numbness is much less likely to be a DVT and more likely a nerve thing. But best to have the scan to be sure. If it's a DVT it can be treated.
Is the numbness on the outside of the thigh? If so it might be myalgia paraesthetica which is not serious and quite common. I had it in my last pregnancy. It went away by itself and came back when I used a sling that was pressing on my pelvis!
Good luck with the scan.
