What are the risks in taking lovenox (enoxaparin) /heparin during pregnancy? What if baby aspirin is taken as well?

In brief: Heparin

Plain Heparin and Lovenox (enoxaparin) (lmw heparin) can both cause easy bruising and bleeding, even hemorrhage, decrease in normal platelet numbers, bone thinning - scary stuff - but usually are very safe.
The trick is never to use them without a clear benefit to outweigh the risks, and always monitored under a specialist care.
