Hiya JO , just thought id update , everything seems to be controlled now not perfect levels but better then they were.

I will be going to my consultant tomorrow to get told dates etc when ill need baby out. Whens the safest time? Its 37 weeks isnt it? thought id ask as some docters arnt clued up on this and i have read that after so long its quite risky for baby to go over a certain mark.

Good luck tomorrow
I was told it was safest to deliver at around 37 week, but i think some hospital have now changed their guidlines

Make sure you let me know how you get on

Well the closest they could do was deliver me at 38 weeks + 3 . Thats ok isnt it? Im sure they know what they are doing but just reading other peoples stories about having OC 37 weeks seems to be the latest...

I'm sure it will be fine hun, they wouldn't let you go late if it wasn't safe to do so
did they explain why it would be 38+3?
You may well go naturally before then anyway

They just said cos my levels are getting better that it would be better to keep baby in just that little longer so her lungs will be more mature. Which i understand completly. I supose im just a little worried with what people have told me.

But then they know what they are doing so i will just have to trust them. Being monitoerd all the time anyway so they did say if anything was out of the ordinary that they would pick up on it which is true.

I just got to stop worrying!!

I get my blood test results back this evening for OC. I have been itching my entire body like a maniac for the last 48 hrs, but mainly my hands and feet.

I have also completely lost my appetite.

Hoping the results will come back negative as, for some reason, I have a fear of being induced. Don't know why, never had a baby before so have no experience of it. I guess I just don't feel ready.

I live in France, so it may be different, but is it pretty standard practice for them to induce you early if you have OC?

Well l thought I might have OC as been constantly kept awake for over a week with really bad itchy armpits (there not sweaty either). I have had the itching for about 6-7 weeks now and its getting worse.

Also got swollen fingers and pins and needles and absolutely shattered....

Driving me crazy but midwife said #oh it must be your deodarant' I have tried not using it , I have tried senstive types and still dont help...!!! Grrrr

Any ideas ladies??

xxx thank you
