So. I got a phone call from my new OB today. Not someone from the office but the actual doctor. I tried to stay calm when he started the conversation with "Well we got the results from your blood tests back". I knew that they took two viles of blood but I had no idea what they were testing. I took a small breath and then he quickly said "No worries on your pregnancy hormone it came back good" BUT..." your blood platelet count came back highly elevated."
He then went on to say that he is hoping that it is Reactive (secondary) Thrombocytosis and it was onset from IVF. If that is the case he is hopeful that the count will go down once the OHSS is all gone. He called my RE to see if he has seen this happen with OHSS and he said that he doesn't feel like he has. Of course as my OB said he probably has never done the blood test required to find the Thrombocytosis either. Worse case scenario is it is Primary Thrombocytosis and there could be an issue with my bone marrow and cancer.Over 50% of pregnancies will also end in miscarriage due to Primary Thrombocytosis.
I will be going in tomorrow to get more blood drawn to see if anything has changed. My next appointment and ultrasound is this Thursday so he is hoping to have the results back by then. Is it ever easy?
I started looking this up in association with OHSS and I found a few studies at Oxford that stated there was a connection with the Reactive Thrombocytosis and OHSS among a lot of other nasty things OHSS can cause. So I am praying with every ounce of Faith that I have that my count will be lower tomorrow and I am on the mend. I am 12 weeks 2 days and I am already so in love with these babies. The thought of losing them is more than I can handle at the moment.
Please keep me and them in your thoughts and prayers. I will update as soon as they get the report back.
