Hi all! I'm new here...just found out I'm pregnant and praying for a sticky baby! I've had 2 m/c in the past and was diagnosed with MTHFR. I just had my first injection yesterday...they have me doing one a day - 30 mg. I just hope it's enough. Anyone else?
#1 MC at 5 weeks
#2MC at 7 weeks
I'm pregnant! Due June 4th and on Lovenox
"Children are a gift from the Lord." Psalm 127:3
I am homozygous mthfr and I have 2 other clotting disorders as well. I take 40mg of lovenox once a day, but I take 5mg of folic acid, and a baby aspirin a day. Are you seeing a hematologist for it or just your OB?
Thank you Mistyx5 for my siggy.
I am also homogenous MTHFR and have been taking 40mg lovenox 1x per day since 7 weeks. I am now almost 36 weeks and switch to heparin tuesday, for one week, until my c-section on the 7th. I also take a baby aspirin daily, as well as 1500 mg calcium (doc says need extra calcium from lovenox) and extra folic acid. And a progesterone shot weekly.
I must say, after 3 previous losses and a preemie, this is as far as I have ever made it, so I thank the lovenox!
Hi! I am heterozygous FVL, with a history of DVT and PE. I am on 120 of Lovenox, two times a day. MY dosage seems huge compared to everyone else, but it is working for me. I have been on it since about 6-7 weeks and I am not at 32 weeks.
Hi! I am heterozygous for Factor II gene mutation and after 3 losses, I have had two successful pregnancies on 40mg Lovenox and 81mg baby aspirin per day. I did switch to heparin around 34 weeks b/c I have a history of preterm delivery at 35 weeks (all three pregnancies). My newest is a perfectly healthy 4 month old. Best of luck to you...it is all so worth it!!
Hi, welcome to the High Risk board! I am hetero for FVL, and now history of superficial clots. I was on 40mg of Lovenox 1x a day, but was just upped to 2x a day for various reasons. It seems like the 30-40mg 1x a day is the starter dose and very common. Good luck to you!!!
