Pregnant and recently diagnosed with AA

Iím a healthy, 29 year old woman, recently pregnant. During my routine OB labs, they noticed my CBC showed really low HGB, platelets, and WBC. A few weeks later I got retested and the numbers were drastically dropping. I was admitted to the University of Utah hospital, and diagnosed with non-severe AA. This was about 6 weeks ago. Since then, Iíve had red blood and platelet transfusions 1-2 times per week, and recently was re-diagnosed with severe AA. I just started cyclosporine last night. Iíve tried Neulasta but it didnít really help with my neutrophil counts. Itís pretty scary having this disease, but Iím extra worried for my baby. I still have 20 weeks to go before delivery, and my doctor is hopeful that will help the AA go into remission. Fingers crossed
