Whooo hooo!!

Passed my glucose test!  However, the midwife said my platelet count was low so I have to have blood drawn again before my next appointment on the 20th.  She said nothing to worry about for right now but they want to keep an eye on it.  Anyone else have this issue?

AWESOME news on the glucose test! I have been so nervous about that, so I was relieved to see in the other thread that some of you didn't find it too bad. 


I am not there yet, so I can't help with the platelet count. Our midwife mentioned at my last appointment that my iron was not officially low but if it got too low later in my pregnancy, they might have to give me some iron injections. Wonder if it's similar?

@shneffer I totally agree.  I would drink one of those fruit punch ones right now haha. 


@clips  Apparently it isnt uncommon for it to happen to pregnant women and as long as my level doesnt fall below a certain number (I have no idea what my count was, she didnt tell me so I'm guessing I'm not near the danger zone or maybe I am and they didnt want to freak me out haha) it shouldn't be an issue.
