    Ladies have any of you or do any of you take baby aspirin? I have several friends who took it whilst pregnant and one of them was told had she not have taken it she would have lost her baby as her placenta was not very good. Sooooo should I be asking the doctor about it, if it could prevent miscarriage? Or should I just chill out

    Seems opinions differ - I've had recurrent mc testing and also have various fertility issues so have been under the care of a consultant. He specifically said NOT for me to take baby aspirin as I do not have a clotting problem and that aspirin can actually cause mc when people take it who don't need it for a medical reason. It is not deemed a safe drug in pregnancy. I've heard of GP's saying it won't do any harm, but my specialist said NO.

    If there's nothing wrong with you I wouldn't consider it. A GP isn't a specialist either so there's that to bear in mind.

    After my first mmc I took baby aspirin with the next pregnancy (without advice to do so) and had a spontaneous mc. I then had the testing and was told not to.

    I think the trouble is we read and Google too much now!

    When I was pregnant with my son 12 years ago I did one test, got a positive and that was it. No retesting or worrying. How things have changed since then ��

    I am taking baby aspirin and did through my last pregnancy. I am under a consultant for miscarriages and was advised to take it went ttc and pregnant. I wouldn't do it without guidance as I have to be monitored throughout pregnancy and advised to stop it at certain point so baby is ok and I don't have any issues during labour due to blood thinning.

    I had it in my second pregnancy, but spoke to my mw about it yesterday and she said I don't need it. You need to have a history of PE/High blood pressure (in self or female family members) BMI over 40 and there was something else, but I can't remember what! I had none of them so the rules must have changed in the 4 years since my last pregnancy!

    I was advised to take it in my last pregnancy after 3 mcs so I started taking it this time when I got my bfp. When I told my midwife she said they don't usually recommend it until 12 weeks, but has told me to continue to take it until delivery.

    My GP recommended it and I've taken it since BFP at 4 weeks. My Consultant is aware of this and agreed it wouldnt hurt to have it and I've to take it until delivery. I did have RMC testing and got a weak positive on sticky blood on the 1st lot of bloods, but normal on the 2nd.

    Hi iv been taking it since my bfp iv had 3 recurrent miscarriages iv been tested but not had the results back my consultant said he wouldn't advise it unless there was a clotting issue but as iv boy had my results and not pregnant again I started taking it and iv got to 6 weeks and had a scan and everything looks good so far not sure what the mw will say but it's making me feel better about things. It won't do any harm so it's up to you but as you've not had any losses I think you would be fine xx

    Thanks ladies, I spoke with my GP and he checked with his colleagues he said as my bp was raised and my bmi is higher j can't remember what it is. I'd be ok, he said in this dose it doesn't cause any harm. I also checked in the BNF (I'm a nurse) and it says in there in a 75mg dose it's safe to do so whilst pregnant. So I feel ok about taking it xx
