I have been on Lovenox with both of my pregnancies. The first time I started at 27 weeks after a DVT was found in my left thigh. And the entire time with my second child. I started them in my first pregnancy in my stomach and love handles. However, I was having a lot of pain with them there. And the bruises were horrible. I have always been rather thin and I had no fat on my stomach and very little in the love handle area. So my doctor allowed me have mine put in my rear (my husband did them) and that worked out for me. Although I have heard of many people taking them the entire pregnancy in their stomach. It is perfectly safe to put them there. I don't think you can hit the baby with that short of a needle (although I know it doesn't feel short in your stomach) Although you can always ask your doctor. He/she might allow you to change the place like mine did.
Take care, I know those shots aren't fun.

If you are really worried go to the doctor and they can get you checked out to be sure. They can do a blood test and those are usually very accurate. I wouldn't overly stress about it yet, until you know if your pregnant or not. cramping in pregnancy doesn't always mean something bad is happening. also, if you were having an ectopic pregnancy, you would be in alot of horrible stomach pain, and you would most likely be bleeding. but still check with your doctor just to be safe. good luck.

Symptoms usually start at 6 weeks. But give or take a week or two is normal also.
From my experience and from what I have learned from Yahoo Q&A is that, with your first a lot of time the morning sickness starts a little earlier than your second or third. That's how it was with me.
My first I got morning sickness when I was between 3-4 weeks along. It was really strong and lasted well into my 6th month with no remorse - day and night lol. Now I am 19 weeks with number two, and it started at 7 weeks, lasted until around week 14-15, and every now and then it lingers, but it's not nearly as bad as the first few weeks of it.
Since you already have an appointment scheduled (which is great! it's never a bad idea to get things rolling early), I would bring up the morning sickness and they can prescribe you some pregnancy safe medications to help with it. Even if it's not that bad right now, it's always nice knowing if it gets bad you have something to fall back on to help.
Congrats on your baby and take care :)

It does sound like you could possible be pregnant.

? 8. Implantation bleeding
? 7. Nausea or vomiting
? 6. Increased sensitivity to odors
? 5. Abdominal bloating
? 4. Frequent urination
? 3. A missed period
? 2. Your basal body temperature stays high
? 1. The proof: A positive home pregnancy test
This is how it was for my sister. She was diagnosed when she was 19, had troubles all her life, with pain, also with ovarian cysts, with her sex life, etc?.you name it, she had it.
She was put on bc pills before she decided to get pregnant. She herself didn?t have problems becoming pregnant and everything was great in pregnancy?.i remember she told me she couldn?t believe that there was no pain. It was the same during breastfeeding but once she finished with the breastfeeding, the pain was gone.
You may decide to start using bc pills after your pregnancy, without the sugar pills in order to prevent ovulation. Acetaminophen can help you and it is safe during pregnancy!

I gained so much weight with both my boys...I'm talking 80 lbs with the first and 100 lbs with the second...I ate really well and walked lots so I don't know what was going on. I just had my second son 10 months ago and I'm pregnant again, so I didnt even have the time to lose the weight from him....so I'm terrified...doctors sending me to a dietician to be on the safe side...always check with your doc before doing something like herbalife, you just never know
Congrats and yay! Babies!
