If so, would you mind sharing with me any information. It would be only the very small propholactic dose. I'm seeing my Maternal Fetal Med Dr on Thursday.
Also, I am wondering with the fact that I am having TWINS might limit that. I am only baby aspirin daily now and that is all I took with my singleton pregnancy. I'm worried about taking Innohep because of the fact that twins are usually born very early. I have a feeling they will be a c-section too since I am 39 years old (well next week I will be).

I took Lovenox (another type of low molecular heparin) during the second trimester of my last pregnancy until I had a rare reaction from, we think, it combining with the allergy medications I was on to help keep my asthma under control (umm, did you follow that because I almost lost myself??). After my reaction I was switched back to Heparin.
I cant really say much about the low molecular weight heparin since I was on it for such a short time. It's nice that it is typically only 1 shot per day verses the 2 or more times a day Heparin is dosed at. I find that I get more relief overall for leg achiness from regular Heparin. Regular heparin needs to be monitored closely though b/c it can cause vaginal bleeding during pregnancy which I had several times during my 3rd trimester with my last pregnancy. We spent several weeks tinkering with my dose to get it right.
I would never go through another pregnancy without a blood thinner. My 1st pregnancy i had a "heart episode" which in retrospect may have been a blood clot breaking loose. I'm so glad that my next doctor recognized the possibility and acted pro actively
Im on Lovenox 40mg injections twice daily (for now). I havent had ANY problems with bleeding at all, and have not had a clot since becoming pg either. I will continuje on the Lovenox until about 34 weeks, then will switch to Heparin since it can be reversed prior to delivery (within minutes with a coagulant med) and does not carry the risk of spinal hematoma and paralysis like Lovenox does. I have no qualms, issue or question that this is the proper and proactive approach for my pregnancy. I would question my Peri's sanity if he hadnt put me on a prophylactic dose of LMWH. It is a million times safer than Aspirin, or doing nothing at all, it doesnt cross the placenta (like Aspirin, Coumadin, and other anticoagulants) and there is NO risk to baby from the meds at all, and very little risk of bleeding problems with the LMWH prophylactic dosing (far less than with regular Heparin). Im totally comfortable with my treatment (however unpleasant it is for me).
Hi there, lurker here...... I'm on Lovenox injections once a day and baby aspirin. My hematologist said that the Lovenox takes care of one aspect and the aspirin works on the platelets. I'll be taking lovenox until 36 weeks and then switching to heparin 2x a day. With my son, I was on heparin 2x day for the entire pregnancy- that was 10 years ago. I've been on Lovenox since I got my BFP at 11 dpo.
