low platelets

Has anyone else had low platelets during pregnancy? I did w my first, had to see a hematologist, get my blood drawn all the time and ended up not being able to get an epidural. Now I'm pregnant w my second and its happening again..am I the only one? Lol

I did with my first, but not this one. Doc was shocked I didn't have it again. Good luck dealing with that again. If it makes you feel any better, I'm opting to not get an epidural even though I could this time. :) How far along are you? I'm 32+2.

I'm only 9+1. Just got out of my appt w the hem. He said 9 weeks is really early to already have low platelets and they were lower than all the other times I got checked w my last one. Now that I know I can go w out an epidural ill prolly say no too even if I'm magically allowed
