Hi Everyone !
After a long journey, December 16,2011 my daughter was born.Her Platelets were perfectly alrite.She was born at 36 weeks( by Induction) as I was not responding to prednisone at all during my 2nd trimester and my only option was IvIg. But IvIg also was not showing much response after my 30 weeks of pregnency & my plts were around 30/ 35 k after recieving 2 treatments of IvIg.After 2 days of receiveing IvIg it was going down to 4/5k So i was given a last shot to prednisone 60mg/day few weeks before the delivary. Plts went up to 46k after 2 days of prednisone and before the induction I was given a treatment of IvIg, plts went up to 77 k. I needed 80k for epidural. When the pain started docs checked the plts count again & plts autometicaly went up to 83 k. Feeling really happy that eeverything went so well! Now I am still on 60 mg of prednisone & seems like its working. Last count was 110k. My daughter is doing good & her plts were 168k during birth.
Thanks to all of you!!!
