Yeah, I'm really worried now, not because of any complications that might arise with me during labour, but for the baby.

It's so scary, and I'm trying to play it down with my family (including my husband - I don't think he understands the full implications), because there's no use worrying them as well when everything might turn out OK. But it is difficult not being able to talk to someone. I would talk to my sister about it, but I don't trust myself not to break down, and I know that if I did that she would get all concerned and tell my parents.

I don't know what I would do if I couldn't talk you guys about it, thanks for being there.

any time hun

I would suggest telling OH though how you are feeling as we don't want your BP going sky high from keeping it all in

They told me that if i didn't deliver by 37weeks there was a good chance of Jack being stillborn (shudder to think about it now!!)

I think they do tend to give you the worse case scenarios sometimes but it doesn't help does it?

Have they spoke of maybe inducing you so your waters don't just go on there own and you would be monitered all the way through?

The doctor I saw wasn't my regular consultant, so he couldn't tell me too much. He just said that there was a likely possibility that I would be induced early, but my consultant will have to make that decision next Tuesday when I see her.

I have been advised to go to the hospital immediately though, if my waters do break in the meantime.

I may put off speaking to OH till next week, as he has to drive to Buxton one day next week with work, which is about a 2 or 3 hour drive away. If I tell him beforehand he will worry and probably speed to get back, and I don't want him putting himself in danger. I'll see how I feel about it when he gets home tonight.

Aww Cloughie, what a worry

With so many possibilities of complications could you not put your foot down and insist on having baby early?

I'll ask my consultant at the next appointment. I'm hoping she will agree, especially as my baby is large, and due to complications with my last delivery, she said she doesn't want me to deliver a big baby this time.

I'm no expert, but I think there are plenty enough reasons to justify inducing me early. The only downside to that is that if I do have the baby early, both my parents will be away on holiday, so won't be there for the birth. But the important thing is that the baby's OK. Nothing else really matters.

Good luck at your next appointment, I think you have plenty of reason to insist on being induced early. At the end of the day a healthy baby is all that matters.

ive posted this in 1st tri as well, have just remembered im in 3rd!

I mentioned to my MW about itchy feet, arms, hands and legs at my last appointment and she said she would send me for blood tests just to double check, but she didn't think there was anything to worry about.

I had the test done yesterday, and I have just had a call from the fetal assessment unit at my hospital saying some of the levels for this test have come back high. She said the main one they worry about seems to be ok, but some others are elevated. Ive got to have more bloods taken on Monday and speak to a doc on wed about it.

Iím now panicking about it. What does it mean if 'some' levels are high... does it mean it is the early stages of an infection and they can sort it?

What should I expect them to do next? Is there anything I can do to help (im signed off for another week because of adnominal pains anyway, so im getting plenty of rest).

If it is OC you have, you can't do anything yourselve hun nobody really knows what causes it.

Just rest loads if you are tired, i did as my itching was worse at night

The next thing they will probably do is get you on medication

I suppose it depends which levels are high

xSuzx is prob best advising you as she has had it with all her pregnancies
try not to worry as we don't want you BP going up as well do we?

take care hun and let us know haw you go

thanks jo. I didn't think anything of it really. apart from keeping me awake at night it isn't that bad. ive not scratched my skin bad enough to mark it, but then i have been smothering it with lotion! It was just the lack of sleep that made me mention it.

im guessing it is OC they are testing for. She didn't say what levels are high, but i will ask on wednesday.

After being told my GTT came back fine, to then get another call the next day sayign something else isn't right, worried me. Plus lack of sleep made me all emotional

Thanks for the reply! i recon all i need is a good night sleep and i won't be half as bad! a nice bath and cup of warm milk before bed it is!

My itching was really minor at the tops of my arms to begin with then my legs
I thought it was because of the sun
Is it the itching keeping you awake?
are you really tired, more than PG tiredness?

If you are concerned mention it at you next MW appointment as it usually appears in 3rd Tri

i hadn't read this thread when i mentioned it to my mw. The only reason i mentioned it was because it was keeping me awake at night (plus i hate having itchy feet!). I had put it down to swelling, and was really after some advise on what i could do to help. reading this thread, im glad i mentioned it now!

If in doubt, i would ask about it. no one at the hospital has mentioned possible oc to me, but i will find out on wed when i see a counsultant.
