I had my 29 week appointment today. All is great with the baby but I got the results of my GD blood draw back. The GD results were fine (whew!) but my white blood cell count was elevated and the red blood cell count was a little low, but my doc wasn't too worried about that. She said it could just be an infection or a cold or such (I haven't had any but who knows).
Also, my platelet count was low (108, apparently 150+ is normal). The doc showed me how it has declined over the course of my pregnancy. She then said that if it goes below 100 at the time I'm in labour I won't be able to get an epidural :eek:. I didn't have my heart set on one but I am terrified of labour and now that I know it might not be an option even if I want it I am even more scared!! If this happens I also will have to be put under if I need a C-Section and DH won't be able to be there... this makes me so sad! My blood will get checked again at 36 weeks and they always check at the hospital when you arrive. I'm scared.
