wbc 14000. 7mo pregnant
Age: 35; Female, Illinois
was on a z-pak. cbc was 2 weeks ago. i am repeating it tomorrow. can't stop worrying.
The white cell count tends to be elevated in pregnancy. If you are not having any symptoms (i.e. fever, nausea, pain/tenderness), then a WBC count of 14,000 is probably nothing to worry about. There is an additional test that your doctor can perform called a "differential" which tells him/her exactly which cells are making up the total count. This can lend insight into whether or not there is an infectious process going on.My advise would be to get the follow-up blood test, and if you start to have any symptoms mentioned above, go in a be seen sooner. Likely, though, things are fine with you and your baby.Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy.Dr. D39693.5441738079
