Right so following my appointment this morning and her sending me to the consultant/high risk unit Wednesday I decided to look up in my notes the results, term & search that thing I advise against ...'Google'.
Anyway the result that is suppose to be between 4-11 highest in pregnancy that was 28 is WCC white blood cell count.
Anyone know anything
Some of the other levels are high - gonna look up what they mean in a bit
I'm guessing the 4-11 is expected result in pregnancy and maybe slightly out would be no concern but mines more than double ...I see references of no need to worry but why send me to the high risk unit for nothing? I hate being sent places for nothing lol
Aren't white blood cells what fight infections? Don't know, can't remember but I saw a programme once about red and white blood cells . . . From what I can gather high white blood cells can indicate infection, which is why you are making more of them.
I'm not knowledgeable about that type of thing...
and boy am I glad they don't hand me the info about my appointments or i'd panic about everything by using google!!
I hope it's nothing big, and that she's just sending you to be sure!!!
I'm going to say maybe you have an infection of some sort... are you feeling different than normal? Plus - it doesn't specify WHY pregnancy gives you high white blood count on the site I just looked at... But the majority of pages says infection.. so it could be just a simple infection that antibiotics would get rid of in a few days!
And - I always panic... I swear to god the most horrible pages come up for me when I google something I want to know!!! Just always gives me the worst of the worst. Google is my enemy most of the time!!!! LOL
Let us know after the appointment! I'm quite curious about this now!
