So back story, i was told i carried thalassemia in 3 previous pregnancies. This time around ive just found out at nearly 24 weeks that i actually carry a much rarer blood disorder (i couldn't understand the name of it, which is probably good as it means i cant google it) my biggest concern now is i was told this monday, and im seeing a dr tomorrow. Should i be worried that they want to see me so quickly?! I know so little about what i actually have that i dont know whether i should be more or less worried than my current level of this isnt great....

Not sure of the answer to that - without knowing what the disorder is! They may be fitting you in quickly because there’s a gap, or just because normally these type of things are referred earlier in pregnancy so they want to catch things up quicker.
If I were you I’d take lots of reassurance from the fact that you’ve had three normal pregnancies (I assume - sorry if I assume wrongly). So whatever it is can’t be something that is severe enough to cause lots of problems for baby.
