Pregnant, weight loss. Abnormal white cell count. Should I worry?
I am ten weeks pregnant, i had blood tests at about five weeks, - i have only just got a call from the nurse asking me to go back 15th march to have more blood tests to check my white cell count again.... I have weighed myself also and found out that i have lost a few kilos too..... Can you tell m if i should worry about the white cell count or would this be slightly normal for pregnant, ?
Slight increase in white cell count is normal in pregnancy.But if it continues increasing then its not normal, in which case you need to be investigated further. Keep the appointment in march so that you can be re-tested.
