I have a friend who is 18w pregnant and has low WBC count for the 3rd month. Her OB referred to a hematologist/oncologist. Does anyone have any experience with this? She is mostly wondering what to expect and what questions she needs to ask. She wants to avoid any unnecessary invasive type testing. I really have not heard of this being an issue with pregnancy so I'm a little concerned myself.

a little background:

-negative HIV screening last month
-no family history of leukemia

Thanks for any info you may have.
