How low is your count?  My platelets went low during my last pregnancy, but I managed to bring them back up to 164 before I went into labor by taking chlorophyll and beet root supplements religiously.

Right now at 24 weeks I'm at about 120? When I delivered my second at 39 weeks they were under 50. I didn't even know I was low until they told me after I had her. Now with this one I have been having excessive bruising up and down my legs making it hurt to even walk, bleeding gums, etc. I have to go in for more labs Tuesday AM

It couldn't hurt to take the supplements.  Mine got down to around 120 before I got serious about doing something to reverse it. 

Here is the chlorophyll I took and here is the beet root.  I took 2 of each once per day.
