Default AVM on right leg and pregnant

I was born with AVM onmy right leg.
It goes from my back all the way down to
my toes. I never thought that I would have to worry about it f I got pregnant, because I am very lucky that it goes around all my major organs. but, now that have spoke to a specialist, she toldme that since mst of my blood i being pumped to my leg that when you are pregnant you produce more blood and your heart pumps harder. Well, now that I am receving more blood my heart has to pump even hearder because it doesn't register that my leg is taking mst of the blood. I am worried, and I have to have some tests done to my heart a little futher into the pregnancy. Any suggestions or comments?
