Ecotrin 81g Is It Safe

I am 16 weeks pregnant and my Gynae wants to put me on Ecotrin 81g. He says the reason for this is that i might have high blood pressure later on in my pregnancy. I have had my blood pressure taken 3 times and twice it has been low and once on the high side. My blood pressure is normally low. He also says that due to a previous miscarriage this will help with blood flow to the baby. I have done some research on Ecotrin to find out that it is not ideal to take during pregnancy as it may cause harm to the baby. I have decided not to take Ecotrin. Have I made the right choice?

My sister used it all through her pregnancy and she and the baby were fine. Sometimes the risks without are greater than the risks with. Maybe you shopuld just tell him right now you would like to hold off and just monitor for a month.
