I know it is a small price to pay for a healthy pregnacy but I really really hate them. I know I sound like a whiny child but...

I never had to have anything injected into my stomach and I've been pregnant twice.  Do you get blood clots because the internet says lovenox is for DVT.

Sounds too risky... I never did that during my pregnancy. To prevent blood clots? I never heard such a thing while going to my appointments. You may need to rethink what you're doing to your pregnancy

I wish i could but I have had 2 major blood clots one on birth control and one during my second pregnancy... trust me they are much worst than the shots 5 days to a week in the hospital horribly painful and potentially deadly.
