Check out the thread at the top of page on obstetric cholestasis- it's dangerous so please read and if you have any symptoms get checked out... Could be nothing other than skin stretching but best to be tested x

Thanks so much for the quick response. yes i have heard of that. My cousin had it with her first pregnancy but got it at 31 weeks. I am 38 weeks pregnant and didn't know if it was possible to get it this far along in my pregnancy? I have had it for a couple of days but tonight it has gotten much worse. Do you think I should call this late at night or should I wait until the morning?

No, best to be safe and call immediately. Worst case they say "come in the morning". You shouldn't delay important things like this.

Good luck!!

I agree with everyone else, better to get checked and it be nothing, than leave it and it be something.

I'm sure you'll be fine, please keep us updated. Good luck!
