I was just diagnosed with ITP on Friday and have started steroid treatment. My platelets had been low, but far from crazy. Last week I caught a cold, and developed nosebleeds, bruising & petechia over 48h. My hematologist got me in immediately and my blood work showed my platelets had dropped from 88 to 12 with the week. They've never been even close to that low (in my previous pregnancy they fell to 64 so I had a csection under GA, we were prepared for this kind of scenario again). We're pretty nervous right now. Any advice/info would be much appreciated. baby seems fine.
