    Anybody else on aspirin throughout their pregnancy?

    I had pre eclampsia in my first pregnancy and pregnancy induced high bp in my second so they are putting me on aspirin every day until I give birth to try and control it..

    Haven't really been given much info, are their any cons to taking it?

    I've known a few people to be on it due to pre ec throughout pregnancy but not myself so not sure of cons or whatever. But I did wanna stop by and congratulate you on your return to the forum and pregnancy.

    Always good to see an oldie return.

    Best of luck throughout the pregnancy.

    xxxx

    I'm on it for different reasons. The only con I've had so far is you bleed a lot lol when they take your blood it takes ages to stem the bleeding and if you get even a tiny cut its a plaster job coz it won't stop! Also you can bruise a bit easier. But I've not noticed that. Congratulations though x x
