erm hi evry1 i have been itching for a few weeks now and its driving me nuts on my back bottom half of my legs my bbs and my arms i am only just touching 14 weeks though is this too early to have it?????????? no lotions and potions seem to work
This has got me worried now. For a few weeks I've been extremely itchy. It's extremely bad on my legs and arms at the moment. As soon as I start scratching my skin turns very very red and all these bumps start appearing.
I wish I would've read this before my last doctors appointment so I could have mentioned what I've been experiencing.
Please note that if you are itching when you get hot and get bumps or hives this could also be something completly different. This could be chronic urticaria, I know some mothers who would get this onset by their hormones. Also this could be a sign of dry skin. I'm sure we all lather ourselves up as much as possible, but its winter here and its very dry air. I cover myself up in lotion and I still itch. I put a humidifer in our house and it helps some.
i had Obstetric Cholestasis on my 3rd child (not on the other 2) i kept getting fobbed off because my itching was on the backs of my hands and feet (mostly feet) and not palms as they were so insistant it would be!!!! NOT THE CASE i had a blood test 4 a raised bp at 36 weeks where they realised i infact DID have Obstetric Cholestasis and was induced straight away
also please take note...........
new studys are showing that Obstetric Cholestasis does not infact cause stillbirth and the junior dr was going 2 send me home!!! but then said they wanted 2 do fetal monitering 2 daily "just incase" i was like UHHH NO, if theres NO risk as u say why the fu*k would you want 2 moniter my baby???????? so i demanded 2 see the senior consultant, so off toddled the jr doc and guess wat????? emergency induction!!!!
NEVER GET FOBBED OFF IF YOU HAVE THIS CONDITION BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY X
I'll be 14 weeks tomorrow, so am fairly convinced its too early for OC to show up, but my feet and the palms of my hands have been driving me mad all week. After reading some of the posts above think i will get checked out
