Quoting Always♥Faithful:" How are the Lovenox shots while pregnant? I didn't find out about my clotting disorder until after I had LO and was hospitalized for the clots."

They are a pain in the ass, lol. I put a cold pack on my stomach every night for a couple minutes before doing it, so it's not as bad. I would have thought it got easier with time, but for some reason mine seemed to hurt worse. Then I started icing it and you don't even feel it.

I could barely poke my finger to check my blood sugar. Luckily my husband will be around if I need someone else to stab me. haha.

Does anyone have von willebrand's disease? I was diagnosed with it as a child and it never bothered me until the end of my pregnancy.

They really aren't that bad. I know Scerria used to have her hubby do hers. I give mine to myself though.

I'm scared to do them without the cold pack now, haha.



Dutch would probably pass out if he had to give me a shot:roll: I'd probably have better luck having Trinity do it for me.

hey ladies I would like to join! I have Protein S deficiency, it doesnt effect me on a day to day basis just while I'm pregnant. I had to take Lovenox injections when I was pregnant with my son.

Yay! Let's hope it gets to a sticky!



I have heterozygous MTHFR that was diagnosed in may of 2011 when it was found that my arms were completely and partially clotted at 7 weeks pregnant. My doctors still dont know if birth control contributed to the blood clot in my head in 2009 or if it was he bc and this gene mutation.



Was anyone able to just stop lovenox after pregnancy and not take anything els? I go see my hematologist tomorrow and I'm fairly nervous he'll want to start me on Coumadin again
