  • When I was on lovanox and I gave myself the shots I would have the same issue. But when a nurse would do it the bruises didn't seem as bad.
  • At almost 36 weeks my bruises and knots from heparin are huge. You kind of just have to roll with it. Sucks the worst when the ultrasound tech pushes hard in them!
