Baby Aspirin During Pregnancy?

Did anyone take baby aspirin during pregnancy? Did you take it all the way up until labor or were you told to stop it at a certain week. I also take heparin with the baby aspirin.

  • I take it along with my heprin...... I think they have you go off just the day before delivery if i remember right from my last baby!! but the asprin wouldnt hurt if you just kept taking it!!

  • My OB says tylenol is the best pain reliever that I can take during pregnancy. Doesn't asprin make blood flow faster? Every pain reliever does something different in addition to numbing the pain, so I'd check with your doctor before you decide to take any over the counter drug at all.

  • I take a baby aspirin every night with my prenatal vitamin (morning sickness is back at 28 weeks) to help my hypertension. the peri said its safe to take and has helped tremendously...

  • I did heparin and baby aspirin too. Most women get to stop it at 36-37 weeks. I was taken off both around 30 due to preterm labor issues. GOOD LUCK
