This might sound strange, but after having 2 early mc's this year, i put myself on 75mg aspirin. silly, i know but i felt like i was getting no help from the doctor. fx'd i am now 8w 4d pregnant, and i went for an early scan to EPAU because of some right sided pain. the midwife asked about medication, and i admitted to her i was taking the aspirin, she said i should have spoke to GP, but it was given in cases like mine so i just used my initiative. scan was fine, saw baby and hb, and i asked when to stop the aspirin and she said she didn't want to tell me to stop now in case something happened to baby (which scared me) she called a registrar and he said i could stop now. midwife said that's just our advice, it's up to you, and made me think she was saying maybe to not stop yet?
what would you do?
I'm scared to stop in case anything happens, but don't want to hurt baby. is anyone on this who may have any advice?
I would like to know too. I did the same thing as you after 2 losses and am now pregnant and taking it. I think I read to take it through the first trimester. Let's do some research and report back if we don't hear from anyone else, ok?
Usually you stop no later than 36 weeks. Definitely keep on throughout the first trimester. It won't hurt you to stay on it until 36 w. I am on Lovenox and I switch to regular heparin at 36 weeks. Those are much stronger than aspirin.
I would probably stop at 12 weeks, but as Jynx says you can continue (although I would be honest with your healthcare providers about this) until much later, I have baby aspirin until 36 weeks and heparin until four weeks after birth.
Thanks Tasha. I did tell my doctor about it. I had a blood clot in my uterus which caused my first mc and a suspected clot in my uterus before my second mc. I was tested for all of the clotting disorders but they were all negative. I decided to try the baby aspirin route as a doctor recommended it after my second mc. I told my doctor as soon as I was pregnant. She said she didn't recommend it but at the same time didn't believe it posed a risk. I decided to continue taking it. I think I will take it until 12 weeks when I know there isn't a clot. Thanks for your replies. Good luck to everyone!
i take it, and i need to take it until 36weeks, i started taking it the month i fell pregnant too so dont know if it helped. iv read more good things about taking it for people that have had problems than bad things. i would take it until after 12weeks atleast, xxxxxx
I take it, but was prescribed by my doctor because of pre eclampsia in last pregnancy. Would go and chat with your doctor about it. I am nervous taking anything in pregnancy and would just get a bit of advice from your doctor.
