Brief Summary:
The objective of this study is to test the efficacy of low-dose aspirin (160 mg/day), given bedtime and started early during pregnancy (≤ 15 +6 weeks of gestation) in nulliparous pregnant women selected as "high-risk" by the presence of a bilateral uterine artery notch and/or bilateral uterine artery PI ≥ 1.7 during the first trimester ultrasound scan (11-13+6 weeks), to prevent the occurrence of pre-eclampsia or small for gestational age at birth.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Preeclampsia (diagnosed per ACOG criteria) and small for gestational age at birth (≤5th percentile on customized growth curves) [ Time Frame: women will be followed for the duration of pregnancy and postpartum, an expected average of 26 to 31 weeks ]

  2. Pre-eclampsia (ACOG criteria) requiring delivery before 34 weeks [ Time Frame: women will be followed for the duration of pregnancy and postpartum, an expected average of 26 to 31 weeks ]
  3. Severe pre-eclampsia (ACOG criteria) [ Time Frame: women will be followed for the duration of pregnancy and postpartum, an expected average of 26 to 31 weeks ]
  4. Perinatal death (22 weeks of gestation to 7 days postnatal) [ Time Frame: women will be followed for the duration of pregnancy and postpartum, an expected average of 26 to 31 weeks ]
  5. Pre-eclampsia (ACOG criteria) [ Time Frame: women will be followed for the duration of pregnancy and postpartum, an expected average of 26 to 31 weeks ]
  6. Adverse effects of treatment [ Time Frame: women will be followed for the duration of pregnancy and postpartum, an expected average of 26 to 31 weeks ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Mode of delivery (vaginal or cesarean) [ Time Frame: women will be followed for the duration of pregnancy, an expected average of 25 to 30 weeks ]
