Hello Ladies,

So my doctor prescribed daily aspirin pill (low dose) as it apparently reduces the risk of pre-eclampsia and complications associated with it.

I completely trust my doctor but i am also concerned. I am not one to take pills for everything especially during pregnancy. Its concerning that i will be taking a daily pill for the next 20 weeks.

Is anyone else having to do the same?

Were you having any other complications? I had pre-eclampsia and was told nobody knows what causes it, so there really isn't any way to prevent it. Especially being it's a blood thinner he wants you to take I would be apprehensive about it as xv well. Are you having a normal pregnancy so far or do you have other risk factors that are affecting his decision?

I had growth restriction as such they had to get my dd out.

You are right there is no info about what causes it but recent studies that i have found show that the incidents of pre-eclampia are reduced by 24% growth restriction by 20%. After doing some research I feel better about it but still nervous.

I'm not the type to take unnecessary meds either, but due to my past I figure I don't have anything to lose so I am taking it with this pregnancy. My Dr himself takes it daily for a healthy heart.

the doctor told me to start taking it when i started TTC and throughout my pregnancy. i had a stillborn son last month, he was 39wks 6 days and died from Fetal Thrombotic Vasculopathy which is blood clotting in the placenta. doc thinks a low dose baby aspirin would help prevent that in the future.

Hi Masha,


I hope that this pregnancy ends on a better note for you, and hopefully the aspirin will prevent problems. My doctor also put me on a baby aspirin a week or so before IVF-ET. (I don't know if I'm pregnant yet. The test will be on Tuesday.) I don't know why I was put on the baby aspirin but I assumed that it was to prevent blood clotting and stroke but maybe that wasn't the reason. I think that the aspirin makes me bruise at blood draw sites where normally I wouldn't bruise. Other than that I haven't noticed anything.


Good Luck, Masha!


Rachael
