Possible: If you have what is called aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease, (usually asthma, sinusitis, nasal polyps) then most nsaids can trigger exacerbation. On the other hand, asthma may worsen during pregnancy. Do note that uncontrolled asthma impacts the fetus and you need to see your doctor to make sure. Low birth weight is just one of the complications.

Could be!: There is a triad of asthma, Aspirin sensitivity and nasal polyps that is well known. You don't even have to have all three. The question is: is it related or a coincidence? If you tolerated the Aspirin for 3 weeks and asthma's just getting worse now, may not be related.
