Since my last post my platelet count had gone up to 115. Which was a huge positive. But my last lab (taken on monday) report was not as encouraging. My platelets dropped to 85. We want them over 100. My doctor has put me on a steroid to hopefully reduce any inflammation that is killing the platelets. I also have a grade 3 placenta but the doctor doesn't seem too worried about that right now. She is going to check it via sono every week until delivery.
What does this mean about location of the delivery? Well, after attending an amazing natural birth class with my sister in law this weekend I would love to deliver naturally. But I would like to do that out of the hospital setting and with my platelets this unstable I don't think I have an option.
Please be praying for high platelets, that I naturally go into labor early (if my platelets keep dropping they're going to induce and the closer I get to my due date the lower they fall), and that we will have a peace about where we will be delivering.
Thank you friends! I am almost 36 weeks...so close to meeting this sweet boy!!
