I usually only post on my month board, but I'm thinking this might not be a super common thing and thought I'd seek more opinions!
My doctor's office just called regarding my blood test from last
week. I've been having upper-right side pain, so they tested to make
sure it wasn't my liver or gall bladder. But, it came back that my
platelet count was low and my lab report notes "probable Gestational
Thrombocytopenia". My count was 134.
They told me not to worry, and I've got an appointment for more testing on thursday. But, of course I googled and now I'm worried. I had a bout with low platelet count when I was little, and was diagnosed with Purpura (ITP), which seems like it may be related. It went away after a few weeks, but I had severe bruising and pain. I'm nervous that my history makes this more cause for concern.Anyone else have familiarity or been diagnosed with Gestational Thrombocytopenia? TIA!
