Post subject: 20 week scan...
I have mine on wednesday and instead of looking forward to it i am dreading what the consultant will say about my low iron abd blood platelets. I have been having nightmares that they will hospitalise me over christmas or something. That is something i really really dont want. Not only can we not afford it as we have rent to pay and bills etc i just dont want to be sruck in hospital. My dh says i am over reacting and ill feel better once i seen consultant on wednesday - i hope he's right i cant sleep properly or anything !

They say its at 10 & apparently coz its at 10 i could be lacking in another mineral ? But i know ppl who's iron has been lower than that and they've had iron transfusion or iron tablets so i don't really understand. What was yours at ?

My patents are also at about 80,000 which is quite low - I'm worried they will take me in over this but another friend told me.i might just end up with a platelet transfusion as well

I hope everything goes well Bella, i'll be thinking of you Smile

Just to offer some reasurence in terms of iron..mine always between 11 &12 (and always been considered above average) so yours isn't that low really..hopefully they'll just give you some iron tablets.

Not sure about the platelets mind and my notes are downstairs. Try not to worry and listen to R Wink
If i'm not squeezing a baby out i'll be popping on FB for the news Very Happy...can't wait Very Happy

good luck - I simply had mine monitored throughout, but yours are lower levels (my iron is currently 10.4 due to section blood loss and I am on double doage of iron, as here they prescirbe anything under 11). I don't think my blood loss was bc of my low platelets and they have nearly returned back to normal now. Hopefully they will be upfront with you and explain it clearly rather than giving you the 'what-ifs' which are scary.

Thank ladies. My consultant is pretty down to earth and prefers the real deal to the what ifs . I know i can rely on him for honest answers.

Honestly tho....whatever the outcome, i am never getting pregnant again. 3rd time and yet again its not going well ! I feel really bad, when inwas pregnant with my son i lost i spent ages wondering how i would cope (my daughter was a handful!) & if i really & truly wanted another.....then i lost him Sad now I'm going through all this [*@!#%*] its made me think i should.of justbeen grateful that i have a child unlike some who are desperate and can't Rolling Eyes

Sorry mini rant !!

Thank ladies. My mum says should stop worrying.....their main priority is me.....which i was kinda.worried about lol. Don't get me wrong don't know if i could go through another loss but i do have my little girl & my wonderful dh & family. I really don't think it will come to that though. I have a great consultant who i know will do everything he can to help me !
