What causes deep vein thrombosis during pregnancy?

Im 15 weeks pregnant and on blood thinner lovanox 80 mg twice a day because I have a deep vein thrombosis in my left leg and a very large superficial thrombosis in my left leg im very concerned today around 330 I vomited a brownish black color for about 5 minutes. The only thing ive ate today that was brown was a poptart around 8 am could my poptart have caused this brownish black vomit?

Hello and welcome.

Poptarts do have coloring agents that can cause a change in color of your vomitus, but then again as you are on a blood thinning medication, bleeding through the oral cavity, esophagus, etc; will have to be ruled out, so please schedule an appointment with your doctor.

Hope this helps

Best wishes.
