I am glad to hear that he is switching you! I think that will ease your mind!

My doc actually gave me a different plan altogether (along w/amnio, yay), so here is the new plan:

* What dosage of Lovenox were you taking? 50 mg
* When did your doc tell you to stop taking it? Switching to Heparin at 36 weeks
* Did you have a c/s or vaginal birth? Will be having a c/s
* Did you do Lovenox postpartum or coumadin? Lovenox 6 weeks postpartum. He gave me the option for coumadin but i'm with Heather on not taking baby out to the lab for blood tests.

I am so happy that you are doing so well Joni! You are so close!!!
I have not gotten to the point of switching yet, but I know the plan. I just discussed it thoroughly with the peri.
* What dosage of Lovenox were you taking? 40mg QD
* When did your doc tell you to stop taking it? Switching to Heparin BID at 36 weeks
* Did you have a c/s or vaginal birth? Will be having a c/s
* Did you do Lovenox postpartum or coumadin? I will be on Lovenox 6 weeks postpartum

Hi Joni!
* What dosage of Lovenox were you taking? I was taking 60mg 2x per day.
* When did your doc tell you to stop taking it? My Dr. switched me to Heparin at 36 weeks (2 weeks before delivery). My last shot will be Sunday night. And then I deliver on Tuesday morning! Oh, I also stopped taking the BA at 36 weeks too!
* Did you have a c/s or vaginal birth? I am having a c-section!
* Did you do Lovenox postpartum or coumadin? Dr. said I can use up the rest of my Lovenox and heparin that I have for 6 weeks pp.

Hey Joni!
1) 40 mg once per day
2) at 34 weeks I switched from lovenox to heparin - shorter life in the event that delivery was sooner than expected
3) c-section
4) lovenox/heparin postpartum for 5 weeks (I'm a huge germophobe, and I just couldn't bring myself to drag little Ella into an overcrowded waiting room several times to have my levels checked. Plus, my stomach skin was so numb, I could hardly feel the sticks anyway!)

When did doc have you stop Lovenox?

Postby leftcoastgirl » Mon Feb 10, 637992 6:47 am

For those who were on Lovenox could you answer a few questions for me about stopping Lovenox before delivery or a c/s?

* What dosage of Lovenox were you taking?
* When did your doc tell you to stop taking it?
* Did you have a c/s or vaginal birth?
* Did you do Lovenox postpartum or coumadin?

Thanks so much!

My doc is telling me to just stop the Lovenox the day before surgery. I think it's because i'm on a lower prophylactic dosage (50 mg) and I just wanted to see how you all were instructed.
