I don't often ask you all for prayers but this has been weighing on my heart.
Towards the end of my pregnancy with little man my blood pressure started rising and my platelet count started dropping. I had no idea what platelets were until then. Platelets are in your blood and their job is help your blood to clot, like when you get a cut. If you have a low platelet count some anesthesiologists will not give you an epidural and if you have to have a c-section they will put you completely under. Which means my husband would not be allowed in the room and I would not get to hear my baby's first cry.
We induced at 39 weeks because of my blood pressure but during delivery my platelet count dropped drastically. The delivery went ok but right after he was born, I hemorrhaged. Which was scary for all of us.
I don't normally have a low platelet count, it's only during pregnancy. My labs from a few weeks ago show my platelet count starting to drop, again. Naturally this has caused my husband and myself to become anxious about delivery. Would you pray specifically that my platelet count will be high and that there would be no need for a c-section?!
Thank you in advance for your prayers!
