Low platelet count in Pregnancy.

My intial pregnancy blood draws showed low platelet count. They drew another one to double check and that also came out low. They are refering me to a hemotologist (?) to do a consult. (I'm 12 weeks along)

I've googled it all, and I'm a little nervous. Has anyone else gone through this??

  • I did. It did not become a issue in my pregnancy. My doctors were worried that I could not have any surgery. my were decreasing every week and I had to get my blood checked every appointment. It never became a problem because when I went into labor my platelets were starting to come back up, I even had a C section with no complications.
