“At my 16 week OB visit, my doctor told me that the PAPP-A level on my First Screen test was low. My baby’s probability for having either Downs or Trisomy 18 were low (1 in thousands for both tests) but the doctor said that this low result can be an early marker for a higher chance of preeclampsia. He recommended that I start a regimen of baby aspirin for the rest of my second trimester. The studies I looked at seemed inconclusive, what are the pros and cons of taking the aspirin?” – Rachel
