I swear I'm loosing it. I had a CBC complete blood count done with my GD tests last week. The results came back and OMG half of them are flagged with a H, L or Abnormal. I freaked out at work, thanks for emailing me them doctor... Anyways, I emailed my doctor to call me or message me since I am really worried about them, he told me hes only worried that my WBC white blood count is really high. It has been for some time, I saw a hematologist for it at the start of pregnancy. But it's since gone up and the doctor wants me to re-test in a couple weeks. Now I'm searching what that could indicate and it's all sorts of nasty scary things like leukemia, auto immune diseases ect. I can't help but sit here in tears thinking "I NEED TO BE HERE FOR MY BABIES". So I emailed him again asking about leukemia and diseases, he said it's not high enough to be leukemia and the other labs are not anything eh thinks I need to worry about. My next appt with him is May 10th, it's going to kill me waiting that long for some in person reassurance.
Of course DH has to work late tonight when I wish he was home to hug me and tell me I'm fine and stop being a lunatic. I am not normally like this, something about knowing these little ones need me once they come out is causing me to be irrational. Just the thought of something being seriously wrong with me so I can't be here for them just tears me up inside.
I just need out get that out, crying on the couch just isn't doing it for me. I don't know how else to be OK right now and not worry.
aaww hugs sweetie .. my wbc is always up but my dr doesnt worry to much about it ... if it was something major im sure they would have asks you to come in sooner ... dont worry yourself it about everything is going to be fine ... stay away from the internet sweetie it would drive you insane ...lol
try not to worry. and DO NOT GOOGLE!!! it is the devil, lol. my CBC was full of H and L too. my dad is an internist, so i called him to talk about the results. he said that my profile was typical for a stress response. and no need to worry!!! also, with increased blood volume, the cutoffs for "normal" do not necessarily apply to pregnant women.
it's so hard to not worry but I have avoided Dr google since that night I flipped out. you ladies are right, if my doctor was very concerned i would be in his office that day. instead he asked me to repeat the cbc in 2 weeks, may 9th. my next appt with him is may 10th so I wont have results back yet but i'll drill him about what that all means. i imagine that with one pregnancy let alone 2 babies in there my normal levels are all out of wack... but its still nerve wraking to see all those L's and H's.
