    Midwife come over to mine today (cause I'm full of bug & couldn't go out)
    She said I'm intermediate risk of getting pre-eclampsia so wants me on a dose of aspirin..
    What does the aspirin do? Forgot to ask as I was in panic mode from feeling sickly.

    But baby's heart is good & bub is the right height for 16 goin on 17 weeks! Which is good :)

    I think so, was just wondering if its a blood thinner? Cause I have raynauds and don't want it to cause extra circulation problems. :)

    I'm okay still feel horrid, not eating very much but will try some dinner for bub :)
    Hope your well

    I was taking aspirin from ovulation until my artery scans last week, it is a anti-platelet which makes your blood less sticky. Its fine to take in low dose in pg (are you on 75mg?). I'm also taking fragmin which is a full blown blood thinner as I am prone to blood clots.

    Haven't got them yet need to buy them, yeah 75mg tablets I need. I just dunno if it will affect my raynauds syndrome? Cause I have trouble getting blood to extremities ?
    Or am I confusing blood thinners with blood clotting tablets? I dunno which one affects me can't remember lol x

    Aspirin will in theory help your raynauds - cos it will thin it making it flow easier to your extremities.


    On my iPhone - so cant see tickers :(

    Oh brilliant ! :) thank you !!
    Jess- Yeah mines worse in winter... But if temperture drops even slightly I start going cold.
    My hands and feet go white, then I get blue and orange patches on me up to elbows and knees .
    It's not changed much since pregnant except ATM I'm hotter (due to heat plus pregnancy) I guess I'll find out more when temp drops! :)

    Deffo get checked.. I don't think doctors can do anything for it but Atleast you know an work knows about the condition. :)
    I work in supermarket so not allowed in the freezers etc.

    I Think they did yeah! :) (had it done when I was 13 so a while back)
    If it is raynauds they need to check whether is raynauds syndrome or Raynaud's disease...
    Raynauds syndrome is just poor circulation.. Raynaud's disease causes other health problems :)
