Hi.. Welcome to healthcare magic community forum..
You could have mentioned how high is the WBC counts.
Mild to moderate elevation are indicate of an inflammation probably secondary to infection. Presence of active infection can affect pregnancy.
Hence, if no active symptoms of infection are seen, you will have to repeat blood counts again.
If they are persisting to be high, evaluations with antibiotics may be necessary..
