My problem is does baby aspirin is harmful for long time pregnancy?What should I do? Please healp me.

Hi Nancy,
If NYU IVF put you on baby aspirin it's most likely because you have a clotting disorder (which I also have and also got pregnant through IVF at NYU.) Low dose aspirin helps insure a consistent, smooth blood flow to the uterus. It is VERY commonly used throughout pregnancy. My OB is with Jonathan Scher's group - Scher is the big pregnancy loss expert ... MOST of their patient's are on baby aspirin throughout their pregnancy. The reason you'll stay on it through week 35 is because after this point your OB doesn't want anything thinning your blood as it could cause complications with bleeding during delivery. Don't worry a single bit ... this is very standard and will do no harm whatsoever to the baby - my very healthy twins are living proof of this :) Instead - count your blessings that you have a proactive OB caring for you.

Best Wishes,
