Hello and welcome. And congratulations on your new pregnancy. Most of us around here are taking aspirin in subsequent pregnancies. It seems to be the standard protocol for women who had PE in a previous pregnancy. However, please always follow your doctor's recommendations. There might be specific reasons why you should or should not be taking any specific medications.
Let us know how it goes :D

I took it from the time I got a positive test until about 34-35 weeks, for both of my relatively healthy pregnancies. Our boys are 2 and 8 months and seem to be just fine. :)

Thanks for the relief! I am only 6 weeks and wanted to be sure. My doctor is fantastic and I am sure she knows whats best, but we just wanted the best for our little one. We have our first ultrasound next week just in time for the fourth of July and are so excited to see the little bean :)

I started taking LDA when I was ttc and took it until week 36. My son is a healthy, happy ten month old. You will be fine. Don't fret, just take it easy and enjoy your pregnancy.

A LOT of people are on low does aspirin when pregnant. It is considered safe, so try not to worry about that part of it!

Aspirin during pregnancy???

Postby kelbel2699 » Mon Dec 03, 639883 2:28 pm

My first baby was delivered via emergency C-section at 31 weeks due to PE and HELLP syndrome in December of 2009. We are pregannt with our second child and I am really terrified that we will have to go through that again. I am being very cautious about evrything and trying to be as healthy as I can. My doctor has me on aspirin, prenatal vitamins, extra calcium, and plenty of rest this time around to help prevent it if at all possible. I am a little uneasy about the aspirin. I just dont want it to have any effects on the baby. Has anyone taken this while pregnant? I have been looking for something to ease my mind on the whole situation. We are just wanting a safe and healthy pregnancy this time around.
