With HELLP, you will have Hemolysis, Elevated Liver enzymes and Low Platelets. I don't think they diagnose HELLP without those 3 factors, even if your platelets get really low. Also, I have been told that platelets can go low during pregnancy.
My platelets took another fairly significant "dip" so to be on the safe side Abigail Marie was delivered via c-section on April 7 :). She was 9 lbs 1 oz and perfect. She's started to develop a touch of jaundice so we're watching her carefully. Other than that we couldn't be happier.
I don't know if anyone with a history of a trainwreck pregnancy can do that, and I'm not trying to downplay your concerns either -- I'm just not a doc, and don't know how docs make these sorts of decisions about appropriate care. :). In your shoes I'd be fretting too, I'm quite sure.
