Pregnant with patch of petechiae on leg

Dear Doc

I am 34 weeks pregnant and developed a patch of petechiae the size of the palm of my hand, on my leg on the inside of my knee. Is this of any interest at all? When should I report it to my gynae?

thanks!

Hallo Racoon
I think this needs checking out as soon as possible. You may have low platelet levels - you can see your GP for this as he can do the necessary tests.
