Thought id post my answers
Ever taken aspirin before? / outcome of pregnancy?: No 1st time taking it

Pregnant now? yeah 16 weeks and 3 days

Taking aspirin for present pregnancy? Yes

If taking aspirin now what dose, when did you start taking it, when do you stop taking it on a BFN cycle? 75mg per day, taken from 12 weeks to 36 weeks

Any successful pregnancies where you took aspirin? hopefully this one!

Any bad things you know of about taking aspirin in pregnancy? nope apparently there is no recorded issues and you can safely take it still if you get put on antibiotics, which i found out last week

Any more treatments during pregnancy? may have to go back on blood pressure tablets depending on how my blood pressure holds up, and growth scans on the baby from 27 weeks

Any diagnosed reason for taking aspirin? had and eclamptic fit in january 2011 at 30+1 resulting in my beautiful little girl being stillborn
There's been lots of tests that say a daily small dose of aspirin can help for pre-eclampsia not to occur again so if it stops the same thing happening again then im all for it!!

Any successful pregnancies where you took aspirin? hoping this one will be!

Any bad things you know of about taking aspirin in pregnancy? not for baby aspirin doses

Any more treatments during pregnancy? no

Any diagnosed reason for taking aspirin? suspected clotting issue with way regular cycles go
Hi Fides, congratulations on your pregnancy Do you believe the aspirin did it for you this time then? What do you mean about a blood clotting in your regular cycles?
Sorry for taking so long to respond, and thanks! Many of my regular cycles often meant passing larger-than-normal blood clots (I never knew they were larger than normal until later). As for this pregnancy, I honestly don't know if the baby aspirin doses are what has helped us reach 39 weeks b/c I only had 1 m/c, and my OB at the time wasn't going to do any testing until I'd had 2 or 3 m/c's - she just chalked up the m/c as a fluke and was like, odds are you'll have better luck next time. My current care provider has more of a mindset of, better safe than sorry, so while we don't know if the baby aspirin is helping or it's just a coincidence, she'd rather have me take it than not take it.

Hi, thanks for posting, it really sounds as though aspirin has a lot to offer some people. I am so so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine how emotionally heartbreaking that must have been. I really hope everything goes perfectly this time

I just wanted to update my answer. This pregnancy did end in miscarriage
But we didn't start aspirin until 9 weeks this time, after we saw the heartrate decrease from 109 to 90 bpm. So I think it may have been too late. My blood pressure was very strange with this last pregnancy. My normal blood pressure is on the low side, I average at about 105/70, but with this pregnancy my numbers were crazy: 137/66, 125/60, 135/66
Has anyone ever experienced anything like that???
If we decide to TTC again we'll be on aspirin from day 1, see if that helps.

Hi Mom2, how are you doing? I hope you find some peace soon after all this you've been through.
I *think* aspirin can help with blood pressure but not too sure, I don't really know if bp is supposed to stay constant through pregnancy maybe set up a thread?
I don't think you should beat yourself up over when you took the aspirin though I have to keep reminding myself not to daily find something to go over in my head "If i'd have only done this / that.."
I really hope it works out next time for you, there's moer chance it will than won't.
I am ttc already! OPk-ing like a mad woman at the moment hoping to catch a good egg. I've also started eating yam, everyday, as i'm hoping for twins!! )I know I am a bit silly) x x x

Hiya Filipenko! I seem to be everywhere with you!
Ok, here are my answers:
Ever taken aspirin before? / outcome of pregnancy?: No this is my first timw
Pregnant now? yes, 7 weeks

Taking aspirin for present pregnancy? Yes

If taking aspirin now what dose, when did you start taking it, when do you stop taking it on a BFN cycle? 81mg per day, taken from 1st day of my last mc-never saw af since!

Any successful pregnancies where you took aspirin? hopefully this will be the one although i have a lovely son and i never took aspirin with him.

Any bad things you know of about taking aspirin in pregnancy? No. I ve actually read that it might help implantation. PLus the dr told me so low doses cant do any harm!

Any more treatments during pregnancy? Not medically but will have to put in a cerclage if i make it past 12 weeks due to bicorn uterus, previous birth and 2 mc that had to end with a d&c

Any diagnosed reason for taking aspirin? Not yet. I was tested was 13 types of blood clotting disorders 8 days ago, will receive b/w results back next saturday. On a different note there is a chance that bicornuate uterus might be causing low blood supply if the baby implants in midpart.

I m really hoping this is it!!Go go baby aspirin!
