Did anyone else's Dr. suggest this???

I had my 20 week appointment this past week and everything is looking wonderful with my girls! :)  My Dr. referred me to a Dr. in Maternal Fetal Medicine to do my anatomy scan, so I got a few different suggestions from him that I was surprised by.  The big one was when he told me to take a baby asprin every day for the rest of my pregnancy to help control my blood pressure.  I had never heard anything about taking baby asprin in pregnancy, but I know that this Dr. knows what he is talking about! Did/is anyone out there taking baby asprin???

Thanks :)

Happy Halloween By the way :)

  • I did.  I still got severe pre-e but maybe it held it off for a bit?

  • I am on it right now and will be until at least week 20.  They had me on it to help increase blood flow to my uterus for my IVF (that's what I was told).

    I have heard of women taking it for other reasons though.

  • I am on it to help control BP (which has been fine so far).  I was told that I would be on it until 2 weeks before my scheduled c-section.  I started it for IVF and was told to continue using it!
  • I had to take a baby aspirin through my IVF cycle and the first trimester, but was told I could stop taking it at ten weeks. 
  • I was also told to start taking it at 20 weeks, but it obviously didn't work in my case :P

    I've been on it since April when I started my last IVF cycle. It is for my blood clotting disorder but also to increase blood flow to the uterus.

  • I was on it for a completely different reason, have blood clotting issues. My dr had me on it until I had my c/s, then took it for 6wks after.

    Good luck to you.

  • My RE had all of his patients on it to get pregnant.  I'll take it for a minor clotting disorder for the rest of my life. Not sure if they'll have me stop it before delivery.  I can't remember what I did before my sinus surgery last year...
