Had a CBC done for my midwife JIC we need to transfer when I'm in labor.

The only two things on there that are scaring me are:
Immature Granulocytes = 1 HIGH Reference Interval: 0-0
Immature Grans (Abs) = 0.1 HIGH Reference Interval: 0.0-0.0

Now, a quick Google search (I know, stupid) turned up Leukemia/Lymphoma as culprits with numbers that high.

It's probably something totally innocuous, right? Nothing to worry about?

Don't stress out. I had a CBC and had low platelets and low WBC- guess what happened when i googled? LEUKEMIA. I have major health anxiety and fretted over this for MONTHS. Another CBC a few months later was totally fine. No worries!

This article says immature granulocytes are elevated in prenancy. Now stop freaking out!

So does this, which appears to be a website for blood analysis machines. See? Sometimes Google is your friend!

THANK YOU! I searched specifically a relationship with pregnancy and came up with bupkus.

My midwife wants to look over everything really carefully at my appointment Thursday and then make a decision re: a referral.

You just never want to see an "abnormal" result on a blood test, you know??
