Blood Count and Peripheral Smear
In CML, the increase in mature granulocytes and normal lymphocyte counts (low percentage due to dilution in the differential count) typically results in a total WBC count of 20,000-60,000 cells/μL. A mild increase in basophils and eosinophils is present and becomes more prominent during the transition to acute leukemia.


My peripheral blood smear says no blasts or abnormal cells but my wbc is lil high 11.67 and neutrophils are also high but i am 21 weeks it ok

Your blood tests showing no blasts or abnormal cells are reassuring.
Were you diagnosed with CML previously to being pregnant? Or is your doctor running tests to see why your numbers are elevated?
