If you are/were on Lovenox/Heparin... Squeaky McGee [16 wks] Due May 7; 2 kids; 3 angel babies; Indiana 65880 posts

If you take or have taken Lovenox/Heparin during pregnancy, when did you doctor start you on the injections? My doctor doesn't want to start them until after we've heard the heartbeat. Does that sound normal? I'm taking baby aspirin now.

I know someone on here who takes Lovenox because she has MTHFR ( I believe) She's not on right now, but here's her profile...http://members.baby-gaga.com/member43072



I can see if she's on FB to tell her to come on for you.

I have MTHFR, as well as other clotting factors, and I'm amazed that they're not starting me on blood thinners ASAP.

I started immediately upon knowing what we were dealing with...8-9 weeks, I want to say? It was 4 years ago. We had an ultrasound showing all well but had not yet heard a heartbeat.



I would ask to start it immediately.

From what I understand, you start immediately..



Very strange your doctor wants you to wait.

I got mine when I switched doctors which was around 11 weeks. My first doctor wasn't going to do anything.
