I thought I would come on here and let you all know about baby aspirin....
I had 2 MMC after having a healthy baby boy, after getting my 4th positive test I decided to do abit of research and came across a story about baby aspirin. When I went to my doctors and told them about it, he told me not to take it....
I came back home and did more research and found out that doctors that aren't specialist in pregnancy won't know anything about it... I also read that even if you take it, it won't affect your baby or you and so I went ahead and started taking 1 every day.
I was referred to the early pregnancy unit and asked my consultant there, and she said she can't tell me to take it, but she wouldn't tell me not to take it. And so I carried on 12 weeks came and so did our scan, where we saw our little heartbeat.
I can't say that the baby aspirin helped me keep our baby but I can't say that it didn't either. What I do know is that my friend recently had 2 miscarriages and I told her after her 2nd to try the baby aspirin... she has recently had her 12 week scan and everything is perfect and they saw a lovely heartbeat.
I hope this bit of information helps someone on here, good luck ladies
Thanks so much for sharing your story! I did some similar research after my 2nd M/C and decided to take baby aspirin as well. I am in the process of switching doctors so I'll likely discuss it with my new one. However, I agree - the literature says it "can't hurt, might help", so why not. I have my first scan on April 24th and am hoping and praying for a little beating heart!
I had 3 miscarriages after having 5 healthy kids. This time I took baby aspirin from the time I thought I might have conceived, along with progesterone, Vitamin D3, Selenium, and prenatals. So far so good. I've had 3 perfect scans and heard heartbeat on doppler.
I have had 2 2nd trimester losses last year, and am now pregnant again, and very nervous. We dicided this time to take low dose/baby asprin, and progesteron, and I also take additional folic acid, along with my prenatal. I really hope this time the baby is here to stay. This will be my 5th bio child, 8th pregnancy. Fingers crossed.
How is baby asprin supposed to help? I've not had a miscarriage, so curious how this would help. Sounds like great results so far!
People with antiphospholipid antibodies, which is common with woman with multiple mc, even if the tests are negative, a lot of woman do test negative, but still benefit from taking the asprin. It is worth a try, right??

Hi lovelies, officially 5 weeks today - is it too late to start taking the aspirin? Was considering waiting until I have my GP appointment on Friday (will be almost 6 weeks by then) and double checking with him but don't want to waste any time as we had our first loss between 5 and 6 weeks
