Things only feel as they have gotten worse with the aches in my neck,legs and arms/shoulders with coughing and tightness in cheats but I m asthmatic so not sure if this is relevant, I have a history of 2 cases of P.E in my lungs. I do smoke and am overweight with a family history (mother&sister) that have also had clots my sister was 20 when she had hers and my first one I was 26 then again 28..

Thanks for writing to us.
A pregnancy as early as 7 weeks can predispose you to blood clots but the incidence is very less. It is a rare phenomenon. The symptoms that you are having are more likely to be related to anxiety and stress rather than any clots.
