Discussions that mention fragmin

Pregnancy board

hi, I am 28 weeks pregnant and everything was going fine until earlier this week when i was diagnosed with DVT(deep vein thrombosis). This is my first pregnany and not surprisingly i am shocked and very scared by this diagnosis. I have been given a drug called fragmin that i have to inject twice daily. Does anyone else on this board have experience of DVT while pregnant? any advice? :confused:

ps...ive managed to catch a chest infection during my 5 day stay at the local hospital...ive been given antibiotics for this (amoxycillin)....
