Not likely: If healthy, and you eat well, keep active, take prenatal vitamins and have regular prenatal checks, while pregnant, you are not at risk for clots or pre eclampsia. Also, your chances of dying are about zero. Would you like to have a baby? Are you afraid? Looks like you have done some research. Why not talk to your dr about your concerns. Good luck to you.
