Hi ladies! I am 30 and this is my third pregnancy (unexpected) but we are excited. I was awakended one night for heavy knife sharp pains in my right side of back (lung) and hard to breathe. I went to the doc the next morning and was put into the hospital. They misdiagnosed me saying my lung had collapsed and was going to send me home. I panicked and signed myself out and had my sister take me to a bigger hospital as I was in bad shape. There is where I was told I had a pulmonary embolism in my right lung and it was pretty serious. I was in the hospital for 5 days and started immediatly on lovenox injections twice a day every 12 hours. I was only 11 weeks pregnant then and had a great chance of losing our baby at that point but to our amazement the baby was strong and so was I. I prayed and only Jesus brought me out of the hospital. I feel blessed. I am very scared now as i will continue to take the lovenox injections for the remainder of the pregnancy and 6 weeks afterwards. I am hoping I can talk with other women that have been through this as this is very hard to overcome emotionally as I am so glad and grateful I am alive to see my two oldest kids that will be 11 and 9. I hope some of you can give me hope about the laboring process as I am scared to be off of the injections for that short time. Thanks for listening to me as I know I have rambled on and on.
