Looking for advice on the risks and management of pulmonary embolisms (PE) in pregnancy. Over the weekend, doctors discovered that I have a small PE that we are now aggressively managing with Eliquis. My husband and I have been trying to conceive our second child, and we are getting mixed advice about whether to hold or not giving this development. While very scary, I know that PEs can happen and be managed during pregnancy. I also know that Eliquis is not known to be safe during pregnancy, but that other blood thinners may be? Would appreciate hearing from other parents who have navigated something similar and recommendations for what kind of specialists to speak with. Thank you.Oct 3, 2023
