I am 6 months pregnant and had a routine blood test done. My doctor told me that my white blood count was 1,600 which is very low, the average person's white blood count is 4,500 - 10,000. So, he sent me to a hemotologist and had more blood work so far the results are as follows; my white blood count went up to 2,100, negative for lupus and lyme disease, and she didn't see any obvious leukemia cells under the microscope but is waiting for the test results for chronic leukemia. I'm also slightly anemic, which is fairly normal for pregnant women.

I feel tired about 45% of the time.

I had some blood work done exactly a year ago and my white blood count was 3,380.

Can anyone provide any ideas/suggestions/experiences as to what is going on. Is there any threat to my baby?
