Shortness of Breath & Lovenox

I'm almost 24 weeks pregnant with twins and noticed the past few days that I have shortness of breath, even when I'm just on the couch relaxing or in bed. I'm on Lovenox for a blood clotting disorder I developed due to my pregnancy. 

I'm so nervous about the shortness of breath, thinking I may have a blood clot in my lungs or something.  

I'm going to the doctor tomorrow, but did anyone ever have shortness of breath in their 2nd trimester?  

Also, can you develop a blood clot while on Lovenox?  

Thank you so much.

Re: Shortness of Breath & Lovenox

  • I think I remember feeling shortness of breath then too... I was on Lovenox also.  The chances you will develop a blood clot while on a blood thinner are rare unless you have some serious clotting disorder and are not on enough medication.  I think the shortness of breath is  from getting bigger and the demands of the baby while being pregnant.
