Default Re:AVM on right leg and pregnant

Hi, I am 43 and have avm's on my arm, chest and neck. I have one daughter who is 15 and during my pregnancy with her my arm got a lot more swollen and the pain was increased dramatically. The pregnancy itself and delivery went wonderfully and she is beautiful and healthy. I had one other pregnancy after that at 30 years old and it ended in miscarriage but during those 12 weeks of pregnancy there was an increase in tumor (or malformation) growth and pain/swelling. I kept the arm (fingers to shoulders) wrapped at all times and it helped to alleviate some discomfort.
Good luck, my prayers are with you and your baby.
