Who else is on daily aspirin?

Postby Rosie-o » Mon May 27, 2013 1:47 pm

I've been advised by 2 different obs to stop taking my low dose daily aspirin at 37 weeks.

Then yesterday I saw a third ob who said it didn't matter whether I stayed on it til birth or went off it 3 weeks before. She said the risk of bleeding too much is minimal.

I'm feeling anxious about stopping.......... any advice?

On it daily for the second time and did not stop first time or this time as was told that it is minimal the risk for excess bleeding.

My RE put me on a daily aspirin regiment to keep me from getting a blood clot during and after possible implantation. I just had my LO in Mar. I stopped taking the aspirin at 37 wks. I think it is safe and will reduce your risk of bleeding too much during delivery and postpartum. I know the nurses asked me repeatedly when the last tie I took it when I was admitted for delivery.
