My husband and I found out on Jan 14th that we are expecting our first child. I wanted to respond to you because I am very high risk and in the pass I have thrown 13 blood clots to my lungs and main pulmonary artery. Needless to say, I am lucky to be here. I have been on Coumadin ever since (2002) but now that I am pregnany, I can not be on that blood thinner drug. However, I will be put on Louvenox which is an injectable bloodthinner once a day and will not harm the baby. They said I most likely will start the injections on the 20th week but I meet with a maternal high risk group in a few weeks and they will discuss what I need and maybe start me earlier.
Hope this helps.

I have been TTC for several years now.* Currently on the TTC message
board, but I have a question.* Is anyone on this sight at high risk for a
PE (Pulminary Emboli)?* What did your dr. do about it?* Do you have to
be on blood thinners for the entire pg?* Or just the 3rd Trimester?
* Current pg women of the world.... Care to share what some of your
early pg symptoms were???
