Low Platelet Count

My OB called today to let me know that my hemoglobin is normal but my platelets are low. He said there's nothing I can do about it and he will repeat the test in a month. Okay, I'm so confused! If there's nothing I can do and he's not concerned then why call and tell me about it!

Maybe so you are aware and you dont go cutting yourself on purpose

He is probably just informing you because my guess would be that if your platelets are still low when you deliver you may need a blood transfusion. Thats my first thought...rather than him saying at the time of delivery "oh you need a blood transfusion" you would ask WHY and he would say "because you platelets are low" and you would say "WHY is this the first I am hearing about this?" See where I am going with that?

I hope your platelets go up! ((HUGS))

That makes sense. That way I could have a family member donate the blood ahead of time. Oooh, I think it should be DH! He is such a big baby about needles, I think I should really torture him! Hee, hee!
