Anyone else have to give themselves shots of blood thinners during pregnancy?

cbaby when do you start? My sister starts immediately but I didn't until 10weeks with DD. Trying to guage how pushy I should be!

Shawna me and my sister have FVL which is a blood clotting disorder. She has other clotting mutations as well and had a bad history with preg. until they figured it out so I do the shots bc of her history even though I have never had a clotting issue.

I have MTHFR. My doctor had me start as soon as I got a BFP.
