I am new to this board. I am pregnant with my 3rd child and will have another lovenox pregnancy do to a very rare blood clotting disorder. I have had 2 successful births on lovenox and am hoping this one will be the same. I saw there are a few of us on here. Anyone having to do the injections 2 times a day? This is my first time of having to do my injections 2 times a day and I am already running out of unbruised areas on my stomach.. any ideas?
Hi and congratulations! This is my 3rd pregnancy on lovenox too and I am doing 2 injections a day for the first time. No advice though on where to inject. I. Had a problem with that in he beginnings but as time has gone on the bruises aren't as bad and are smaller. I think you can inject in the arm or thighs but would double check on that. I have only ever injected in the abdomen.
Welcome and congrats on your pregnancy! I was on 2 shots a day with both of my pregnancies. There were times when it felt like I would run out of spots to do the injections, but I always managed to find a place. I was also told by my hemo that I could do my injections in the thigh, but I never did.
Hi! Congrats on your pregnancy! I always start off on one injection and in the 3rd tri I switch to two a day. This is pregnancy #3 that way. I was told fatty part of thigh too, although I never did it. I alternated all over my belly, and I never have bruised too terrible. I found the slower that I inject, and if I wait a couple seconds after the solution is all gone before removing the needle, I bruised a lot less. Good luck!
