  • I am 25 weeks pregnant and on lovenox 80mg twice a day. I have been on it about 6 weeks. Lately I have been getting these migraines that hurt so bad I vomit. Sensitive to light and extremely irritable. I spend a day or so after I get the headache feeling like I been beat up. I get body aches and have no energy and have nausea all day.
