What I thought was going to be a quick half hour trip to see the obstetrician today turned into 3 hours of testing. The itchyness has died down a lot, to the point where I didnt think it was a concern anymore, so cue quick trip to get back normal blood test results, and be on my way.
Well, was I wrong. Liver function is normal but bile salts are through the roof, which is the concerning one. Then the OB decided to take BP, i am going on about how I have never had a bad BP reading. Wrong again. BP was high. Put it down to the fact I had just been told I was going to be induced but still had to take it into consideration obviously.
Had a CTG and more bloods done which were all normal, except bile salts. Which is now going to become a weekly occurence until they induce me at about 38 weeks. So next week its off to the hospital again to sit and be a pin cushion and get the monitor on again. I think they may see what happens next week and then book me in for induction.
I am happy and a bit nervous, I kind of wanted to be induced purely because I have more control over when, and with DS that makes things so much easier, but I am nervous because its now going to happen sooner than I thought. Glad my last day of work is tomorrow, although not sure how much relaxing will be happening once I finish work.
