Hi

I am looking for some advice, I am 27+ weeks, and last week went to the MW as I was having dizzy/vague spells, she took a blood count, I have come home to a letter stating I need these done again as my White blood count is outwith the normal range and is 15.0, can anyone advise what this means before I go  ^idiot^ worrying myself sick.

Hi Katrina,

My white blood cell count just came in at 14.6 but the doctor told me that it is "normal" to have a higher count when pg which is what I also read on the internet (and of course, I am not totally convinced! but that is just me being a constant worrier).

Of course take all precautions necessary and have yourself retested. It could even be something so simple as a little infection in a tooth which could set them off.

best to you!

Hi Mayve

Thanks for replying, I spoke to my midwife today and she is not concerned either, I am having my anti-d injection on Tuesday and they will do another test to re-check, so hopefully all is well.

Thanks again

Katrina
