Patient : I am 29 weeks pregnant, and after a urine test found that my white blood cell count was high. I was told that I had a UTI and to take antibiotics. I decided to wait for the culture to come back before taking anything, and as it turns out, there was no bacteria. My doc told me that I didn't have a UTI and didn't need to take antibiotics (which is great!). But, I'm still concerned about having a high WBC count. Could you translate for me and let me know what this could potentially be?? Thanks.
