    Default Clexane Injections

    Hi,
    Im wondering if any other mums-to-be out there are having clexane injections while pregnant? I have to have them once a day up until 6 weeks after my baby is born. Does anyone know if you have to be induced if you are on clexane? I have my next appointment next month so I will ask more questions then but just curious if anyone is having to do the same thing.
    Thanks

    I'm on Clexane and currently 29+2.

    My OB said that we will continue right up until delivery but as I'm only on it for a precaution rather than a full blown clotting disorder, my circumstances could be different to the norm...

    I've been on Clexane since about 5 weeks pregnant and will continue daily injections until 36 weeks. I have a prothrombin gene mutation so have a bit too much clotting protein in my blood. The Clexane is to reduce the risk of me developing DVT and to ensure a healthy placenta. I'm also on aspirin.

    My Ob is stopping the meds at 36 weeks to allow my body to be clear of everything for the labour. If you have Clexane too close to starting labour an epidural is usually considered too risky, and you're also at risk for having a big bleed because your blood won't clot as fast as it should.

    I am aiming for a spontaneous vaginal birth which my Ob approves of, so I don't think you would have to be induced. My Ob will only induce me if I happen to go past my due date as by that time they're safer out than in.

    I will only have to resume Clexane after the birth if I happen to need a c-section, but that's only because of the risks of DVT happening after any surgery.

    Good Luck!
