    Thanks for that ladies! I think I will feel much more comfortable taking it until the little one arrives. It's just one pill a day of baby aspirin so low dose and I've been told I might not even need to be on it but better to be safe than sorry. Bubs measuring ahead which can apparently happen when on aspirin too. Has anyone else found this?

    Totally understand. I had a miscarriage as well fairly late on (11 weeks) and with my following pregnancy, was taking vitex from conception through to 12 weeks. I spoke with heaps of professionals about it who said there was no data saying it was dangerous, so I just kept taking it through that 12 weeks stage when I was still scared of another m/c. Further along in the pregnancy taking the supplement started to make me feel ill in the stomach so I stopped it then and all has been well. It's not exactly the same, but do understand that fear of stopping what has helped us achieved a healthy baby - can you talk it over with your Ob?

    Oh wow! Bub's measuring ahead and always has been but I read that being on aspirin can lead to bigger babies so put it down to that.

    Never heard about big babies and aspirin.
    However could be the case. I'm 35 weeks now and Bub is measuring 3 weeks ahead, was estimated weight at 3kg at 34 weeks and expected to be 10pound if I go full term.

    In saying that, he has never measured ahead before third trimester.

    I could have stopped clexane at 12 weeks, but was also too afraid to stop. My Ob knew I was still taking it and I just had to stop a couple of days before my scheduled csection.

    Seems like there might be a link between aspirin and big bubs in some cases. This bub is only measuring ahead by 10 days and mainly due to head size but nonetheless someone is doing some decent growing in there and I'm thinking maybe what I read has truth to it. A colleague had 2 big babies and was on aspirin as well which is what made me think to research it after the last growth scan.

    Personally I wouldn't stop. I had 3 early miscarriages 4 years ago whilst trying for my sons. Fell pregnant last year and when I didn't miscarry I thought my daughter was guaranteed ( miscarried prior to both healthy pregnancies). She was then stillborn and I've since found out that I have antiphospholipid syndrome. I'm 28 weeks pregnant now and on aspirin and clexane and will be on both until just before I get induced.
    I wouldn't stop it just incase.
    Oh and with aspirin and growth, my baby is measuring smaller this pregnancy so not correct for me.
