    Default Pulmonary embolism!! Any experience out there????

    I'm writing as a worried friend who has been diagnosed two weeks ago with PE. She has a blood clot on both of her lungs and in quite a lot of pain. She is 22 weeks pregnant with a little girl and has a 2 year old son and 1 year old daughter at home. Not only is she suffering intense anxiety, the physical pain and also the mental anguish that comes with such an illness. I've researched a lot on this subject and sadly cannot reach a lady that has had similar experiences. I'm seeking any advice, stories of personal experiences, support methods, anything that can help. Thanks in advance.

    I had a PE with my second pregnancy at 8 weeks gestation. It was caused by a blood clot that dislodged. My leg had been sore for a few days but I thought it was sore from leg cramps so ignored it. I was on clexane the rest of the pregnancy and my baby was born c-section and was and is perfectly fine. With this third pregnancy (26 weeks) I was on clexane from the bfp.
