Ive been told that it is likely to appear in future pregnancies if you have had it in the past, and the symptoms appear sooner.

Ive had to cut all my nails off because i was scratching so much! Its a lot better now though, i can resist scratching if i keep my hands and feet smothered in cream

Ive finally learned how to pronounce it correctly as well! hehe

i was told that so im being very cautious and praying to god i dont get it again as i really dont want another induction as it was a bloody awful experience of having a baby, being stuck in hospital on your own til your partners allowed to come in at visitin times

ooo.. don't say that! they are pretty good at my hospital. as long as the ward it quiet they will let OH sit with me when i am waiting for results and stuff.

Its nice to have a day to 'aim for' though.

How long did your induction take? Will they let you go 4 days like it says it could on the leaflet i have been given?

well i got induced and i went into full labour the following day, though there was a girl who was an IVF patient who had been induced and hers took 3 days in total, think it depends on the midwife, i was lucky to have the midwife who delivered my 1st and she was pretty happy to let me choose what happened, she gave me the option to break my waters or progress naturally, i think some midwifes probably wouldnt do that

Just wanted to say thanks for this thread - my eczema has been flaring up badly since I've got pregnant, so I checked with my MW today at my 28 week check-up (ok it was a day early lol) and she's sent me off to the hospital to get my bloods tested! Apparently her needles are too big for my veins lol, so I'm getting liver function tested at the same time as my iron levels. Apparently it takes 2 weeks for the results to come through as they need to go up to Birmingham. I'm so glad I'm getting this test - I told a gp (my practice has loads, and I've hardly seen the same one throughout lol) that my eczema was getting worse and more itchy, and that I was worried, and he just said, well not you're not yellow are you? So thanks again, xxxxxxxx

aww! i agree! this thread has made me a lot less worried about the condition.

fingers crossed the results come back normal!

lol about her needles being too big! they just jab me in the back of my hand if the veins in my arm "run away".

Anyone know if this is true?

Ooooooo I read that as well. It said you shouldn't use as oestrogen based pill. It also said that women who have had this, sometimes go on to develop itchiness when they ovulate and just before AF. I guess the oestrogen surge causes the itching, which is why an oestrogen based pill would be no good.

I've never been jabbed in the hand though! The nurse today looked at my veins and agreed with the MW that they weren't very good, but I told her I thought they were fine as I was still alive lolol.

Could be hun, as i said many pages back my itching was only really slight on the top of one arm to begin with

What have they said is abnormal about your results??
Have they done liver function/bile level tests??

yep they have done loads - Had 6 bottles taken about 3 weeks ago - ALT is up as well as GGT.... treatment level for GGT is 50 mine was 47 last week and 65 this week......


They have not said that I have OC as yet but they are keeping an eye on my liver function as it is abnormal and could be an indication that I am developing it....

Now I am making myself paranoid thinking I am itchy when I am not!!!!

Had my m/w appt today to sign me fit to fly for Monday... mentioned after reading this post that I've been itching a lot...

I itch on my head, my arms, my knuckles and the veins on the back of my hands, my legs,especially the bottoms and especially my shins, ankles and feet, so much that I can scratch until I bleed.

it's not continous though, maybe on and off through the day and I don't have lack of sleep because of it.

My wee is very very dark yellow and I noticed this when I wipe too sorry tmi!

I'm also very tired, more than I was with my twinnies, I have to lie down for a few hours each day and still feel exhausted.

Does this sound like Oc symptoms or just regular pg stuff?

My m/w said it was quite early for OC to occur but it can happen.

Anyway she's taken some blood and is going to call me on her shift on Sunday with the results so that we know before I go to Sweden.

A little nervous but hoping it's just standard itching as she said in an extreme case I wouldn't be able to go.

What are your thought ladies?

Hmm it is a bit early

But everything you have said sounds just like i was when i had OC
I really hope it isn't so you can fly
when are you going and for how long?

The reason i ask is that i had to be monitered twice a week and bloods done each time and a scan a week
But i was a lot further on i started around 33 weeks if i remember rightly

If it is and they catch it early and put you on meds and your levels are not too high you would prob be okay to go away for a week( duno for sure)

But don't panic until she gets back to you hun

All the best and let us know what she says

Will do.

We're off to Oh's parents in Sweden for 5 days, hoping I can go.

My m/w said she's very catious with these things, apparently her co worker developed it at 19 weeks

Bless her though she's trying to rush through the bloods so we can know by Sun
