In prescribing the Lovenox I'm sure your doctor is trying to be as sure as possible that you won't develop a dangerous clot that could put the baby in danger. You do get some anti-clotting effect from the baby aspirin and it's possible that is all you need. There is no way to be sure, even with the Lovenox (as you have learned). Medications must always be evaluated by weighing risks and benefits. If your side effects are making it not worth it to take the medication and your gut feeling is that you don't need it, that may be your answer. Informed consent is the important thing. You know the risks and benefits and decide what is best. Nobody can predict one way or another, but many mothers do have successful pregnancies despite such factors, with or without this medication. You have to do what feels right for you and recognize the risks that are inherent with your condition, then hope for the best.
