blood problems

Anyone else have trouble with their platelets getting lower and lower during pregnancy? Anything to help with it?

I was taking them and she said it was ok. But then my morning sickness got really bad and I stopped taking them. Guess I need to get back on them. This is my 2nd baby. The other is 10 months old. Thanks.

Ask your doctor if you can take vitamin B12 suppliments to make up for these ever dropping platelets. B12 helps produce red blood cells, but as we all learned in high school, platelets are within our blood stream :)
It doesn't need to be prescribed to you, but I'd ask just in case hun :) Good luck!
