Taking a baby aspirin a day is one of the new standards of care for women who might be at risk for pre-eclampsia. It does not affect your blood pressure, but instead works to prevent you from developing pre-eclampsia in the first place.
It has very few side effects. It is now given to most women who are at risk or who have a past history of pre-eclampsia.
And what are the very few side effects on the baby aspirin during pregnancy?
I had the eclampsia and my blood pressure was 174/118.
A very small chance of bleeding abnormally. It is used frequently during pregnancy, and has been well studied.
Eclampsia can be life threatening for you and your baby. It is a very dangerous condition.
When in that pregnancy did you get diagnosed? I am just wondering because I am having alot of symptoms and am concerned!
Between 4-5 month I noticed I was sweeling a lot, hands, face and feet. But every visit at the ob the test results were ok, however when I complaint that I was too swallen the ob ignored me as she said it was a hot and humid summer and due to the weather it was normal, but I did not feel normal, and one day for my routine my blood pressure was higher then normal, she sent me home and over night my blood pressure went very high and I lost it, good thing I was home not alone, otherwise I was not able to pick up the phone and call 911. Do not ignore your own body and if you feel something go to the hospital and they will help:) I don't wish anyone to go through what I went through.
