How accurate does your count need to be? One idea would be to
set up some sort of periodic background task which computes
the current sizes of your tables and stores that information in
another table in your database.

Then, when you needed the count, you could simply read it
from your stored-counts table.

You could adjust the frequency of the background task to
improve the accuracy of the count.
