Re : Lovenox vs generic

<t>Melissa, I am finding the same thing with the needle being harder to get through the skin. I am pretty sure the generic/brand name are the same gauge needle though, but I wonder if the bevel on the end is different...my eyes are not good enough to see that close. I'm tempted to snag some 27 gauge...

Re : Two partners with/out pre-e.

<t>My first two pregnancies were with a different partner (resulted in pre-e) but I was 20 and 22 when I had them and undiagnosed/untreated for my clotting disorder. Ten years went by before I had my 3rd so from what I have read it can be like a "first pregnancy" again ...that baby was with a new pa...

Re : Anyone have NEC w/1st baby, no probs w/2nd?

<t>First, I am very sorry for your loss...I can understand your worry and concern. I am a NICU nurse, and though there are still many unknowns as to whom NEC will target, I do know that our very youngest preemies are the ones I see develop it (30 weeks and under). There are thoughts on the gut being...

Lovenox vs generic

<t>When I got my RX filled, the pharmacy was out of the generic so they gave me 6 syringes of regular brand name Lovenox. I ran out of those a few days ago and i'm using the generic now. It stings SO MUCH MORE than the regular Lovenox, ugh! I remember last time that certain BOXES would sting....the ...

Re : C-section 37 vs 38 weeks.

<t>I dont know your full medical history, but even at 37 weeks there is a chance the baby could have respiratory distress. I had my last baby via csection at 37w5d and he still had to go to the NICU for a day because he had a difficult time transitioning. This time I am going to do whatever it takes...

Re : Started lovenox yesterday, and advice from MFM

<t>Some of us that have had preeclampsia (especially severe early onset pre-e) have been tested for thrombophilias. I have Factor V Leiden which is in that category. Lovenox is a shot (blood thinner) that is given prophylactically to prevent blood clots to the placenta. It's often prescribed along w...

Re : Started lovenox yesterday, and advice from MFM

I hope so too, are you actively TTC? My last pregnancy went so well on the lovenox/lda I was so thankful. I am praying it goes as well this time too.

Re : Started lovenox yesterday, and advice from MFM

I am able to do the 50mg just fine...its what I did last time. It was just amusing that the pharmacist thought id rather poke myself 3x instead of pushing the excess med out of the syringe before injecting it. :) I am scheduled foe an u/s that day so im looking forward to seeing baby!

Started lovenox yesterday, and advice from MFM

<t>So my docs office called today to schedule my first appointment, and they told me to start LDA and phoned in my rx for lovenox. I'll be on 50 mg of lovenox...they come in 40 mg and 60 mg syringes. I had to laugh at the pharmacist because I told him last time I did this I got the 60 mg syringe and...
