Pregnant women should watch for signs of thrombosis because the risk of developing the condition is much greater when a woman is expecting. Swelling, pain, sensitivity to pressure or a bluish color in one of the legs is indications of thrombosis, said Klaus Koeing of Munich.

Thrombosis occurs when a blood clot develops in the leg, usually in a vein. If it is not caught early, pieces of the blood clot can break always and reach the heart or lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism.
