I am wondering if anyone's OB has put them a Children's Apirin everyday? At my appointment on Tuesday she told me to take 1 everyday. Anyone else doing this? If so, did your OB tell you what this does?

I am on the 81mg also, but am on it until... actually I have no idea how long I have to be on it for... I think probably as long as I will be having my lovenox shots, which is somewhere in the 30 week area I guess I had better check with my OB so I don't take it too long!

I was supposed to be on it, but after a couple of days it was affecting my asthma too much so I had to stop.

Be sure to check with your doctors ladies! My dr that told me to take it said if you take it too far into pregnancy it could cause you to hemorrhage at delivery...

Erica,
Thanks for pointing that out! We don't need anything going wrong at delivery. I can't imagine what that would be like.
I'll definitely talk to my OB next time I go in.
