well im 32 +5 and im being treated for Obstetric Cholestasis (severe itching). my liver test results are raising by the week. they are ment to be below 40. they went from 50 to 74 in 6 days, then 74 to 99 in 6 days. the itching is herendous. id love a cactus in the front room i could have a good scratch on!!
im on tablets to stop the itch but not really working. i have fetal monitoring twice a week and blood tests to check how high the liver tests are going.
they have said i will be induced around 37 weeks as the condition can be linked to still born babies.
although if my liver results keep raising at the level they are doing now (average 20 a week) then i might have to deliver at 34 weeks.
i had a scan done last week when i was 31+1 and they said the baby is measuring around 4lb 9. so is a nice healthy size. so im not to worried if i have to deliver early. i have another scan booked for when im 34 weeks.
i just have to keep telling myself this will all stop once he is here. just a few more weeks.......
