Hello, I recently gave birth to my daughter 2 months ago go. I got diagnosed with ITP about two years ago. They monitored my levels all through my pregnancy and up until the last month they put me on prednisone 60mg a day until I gave birth, then tappered down. My platelets had gone up to 130. I had a (surprise) c section so I needed to have enough platelets for surgery and/or an epidural. So it is possible to raise them up, it just made my pregnancy a little difficult but it turned out all ok thanks to God. Hope all goes well for you.

They said that it would be safe for the baby for me to be on prednisone, but when she was born they ran a lot of tests on her and for 6 weeks they had her do a cbc each week to make sure she didn't have itp as well. Luckily she didn't. So they stopped testing. I was on prednisone the last 3 weeks of pregnancy because I didn't want to be on it long as I didn't know if it was going to affect my baby. Good luck to you, I hope it all works out
