As an accommodation of pregnancy, your blood volume increases and your blood pressure decreases and your heart rate increase. These are all to accommodate proper transfer of oxygen and nutrition to baby. Completely normal! ...Read more

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. Having said that, I do not see any reason for concern. ...Read more
