    Hi Girls

    I had my booking in bloods on Monday and i have received a letter from the docs asking to have my full blood count done again as there is an increase in white blood cells. I have checked with the midwife and she is saying the range is normal as they are slightly higher in pregnancy. Has anyone else had this? I stupidly googled it and now worried that i have all sorts of nasty diseases.

    Also i have B (rhesus) Negative blood which i understand i will have to have injections for? Does anyone know anything about this?

    many thanks

    I wouldn't worry too much Sophie. You do get an increase in pregnancy anyway - your body could also have been fighting off an infection, like a cold or something.

    the injection you will get is an Anti D injection it's just incase the baby is rhesus positive.

    2 out of 3 physicals for me will give high white blood cell count results, and it is always nothing to worry about, just my body fighting sinus infection or whatnot. I would not worry about this at all.
