i am 38 weeks 5 days and my skin is itchy all over my body. I can hardly stand it. I have been awake since 1am and it is now 3:49am. I am also have BH contractions ever 10 min. Has anyone ever experienced an itchy body like this. It is literally from head to toe
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?
