From the Pregnancy Baby Care website

Low platelets during pregnancy are a common thing. The standard platelet count is between 150 to 400 million per milliliter of blood. However, this count may vary from person to person.

Low Blood Platelet Count During Pregnancy Causes
 

While you are pregnant, your body produces more plasma in blood. This is the liquid part of your blood. However, the platelet count stays the same resulting in low platelet count during pregnancy as they are diluted.
