My daughter is in her thirteenth week of pregnancy. Firstly she was told that she had a high platelet count (423) which they ve now said is normal and the last count was 389. She has now been rung and asked to get a blood test done immediately as her white blood count is low. Naturally, she is (and I am) concerned, particularly as I had numerous problems when pregnant and also because of autoimmune problems in the family.
