All females with pregnancy should be followed by a OB-GYN physician at all times. The physician is in the best position to evaluate the pregnancy and all associated lab work. An elevation in the white blood cell (WBC) count is actually a normal and common occurrence during pregnancy. The WBC peaks in the third trimester in the 12-18,000 range. There is another peak during labor, sometimes up to the 25,000 range. Despite the normal increase in WBC count, there are other causes of elevated WBC counts which a physician can better assess.

Your white blood cell count is not 18, when your doctor said it was 18 they meant 18,000. A normal white blood cell count is anywhere from 4,000 up to 10,000 so this means you have a high white blood cell count.

That indicates the bacterial infections, which are accessible to the white blood cells for phagocytosis. The viruses are always inside the cells. The white blood cell count is low. The malaria parasite is inside the red blood cell. The white blood cell count is low. The typhoid bacillus is inside the cell. The white blood cell count is low.
