Post subject: well ladies....
Ive been back up the hospital to see the blood specialist this morning because of my low iron and low platelets.
Both have dropped again, im now on iron tablets and have to go back in 4 weeks time where they will take a blood test for my platelets there and then and if they have dropped then i will have steriods to boost them either in a tablet form or in a drip !
Hes not so keen on an epidural so looks like i maybe asleep again for this one.
Hes also saying he'd like to see me go maximum 38 weeks depends if i need medication and if it takes affect.
I really need to get a shift on with getting things ready....i knew it would be an early baby just might be a little earlier than expected !

I don't know for definite....i hate not knowing lol. I have a scan on Wednesday i was really hoping they might give me more of an in sight then.
My bp is ok (fingers crossed) I've been on aspirin for it as i had pre eclampsia with my daughter.and have a bit of a history with bp. They are not keen on the epidural because of my platelets and the.possibilty i might bleed on the spine x
