I was on LDA before we conceived and started Lovenox around 5 weeks, basically as soon as my hcg and progesterone confirmed that I was pregnant and my levels were increasing. We didn't wait to see a heartbeat because MFM wanted to get started ASAP.

I was started on lovenox/heparin injections as soon as the heartbeat was found on the ultrasound. I'd say it was between 6-8 weeks.

I started at 6 weeks - 1 x Clexane injection p/day
Upped to 2 x per day from 14 weeks (if I remember correctly)

I started when the pregnancy was viable (6 week u/s) and continued through 5 weeks postpartum. I switched from lovenox to heparin at 34 weeks. The MFM wanted it started before the placenta formed/attached due to a clotting disorder. It really depends on your specific disorder as to when you're told to start. Have you had an appointment yet?
