The MCHC isn't significantly elevated. Increase in eosinophils is seen with allergic states.

All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, the results you provided are not a cause for concern. Wish you good health and a healthy baby!
