Hi All,

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.

Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.

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!
