Thank you for sharing, glad she has a happy family now. My tests just turned back negative but I will have to re-test later because I have the classic symptoms.

I had OC in my last pregnancy and had to be induced early because of it. I am having liver function tests every month this time to check if there is any sign of it returning.

i had it with my son i have started last night with itchy palms but i'm woundering is it to early to be starting with it if i'm getting it? i see my midwife tomorrow though so i'll mention it anyway to her and i'm sure she'll do bloods with my history. just worried as to what this will mean if it is the start of it? x

@ Levichips, I have read that it can start any time in the second or third trimester. I would recommend seeing an herbalist about getting a tea that can cleanse the liver. I have heard many people have even reversed their cholestasis using this approach. I had it with my last pregnancy so have a 60-90% chance of getting it this time. I plan on using diet and herbs to help support my liver and give me the best chance of not getting it. We'll see if it works!

My itching *if I remember correctly* started on my boobs. I ignored it because it was winter and because towards the end your boobs are growing and that tends to make them itch.. But it just kept getting more and more over a couple weeks and I was just itching myself soo much! I read up on lots of things and had remembered that if your palms start to itch that's a real problem. So I called in and they said it sounded like Cholestasis and wanted me to come in for tests.. sure enough... I was induced that night, but I was 38 weeks along.
