Looks like baby will be here very soon

I'm really worried about this now too as I have been itching like crazy this week but it stopped for a couple of days then last night it was insanely sore my belly back, neck arms and soles of my feet. I felt like I could rip off the skin and I just wanted a bucket of ice to put my feet in. I have no rash. I've been feeling extremely hot (my GP said that's just pregnancy for you) and it seems to be much worse at night in bed. I'm leaving my skin all red from the scratching so hard. MY GP did liver function blood test today but not the bile acid one you are talking about unless they routinely check that at same time? I will have results by Wed but I am so worried about this as I am almost 37 weeks now and I'm scared that if it can take a couple of weeks to show up in blood tests that it may harm my baby if this is what it is.

If you are itching that badly it will show up so don't worry about it but do keep pushing
Good luck xx

I had a test for this on Saturday - results were 6, and then had another test today - results were 12. MW said not to worry unless they were over 14, but to mention to doc.

Am now REALLY worried - they have DOUBLED in two days.

Would anyone else be worried? They are still in 'normal' levels, but have doubled!

Not felt baby as much...still had my movements, but not as active as normal? I see doc tomo...but wondering if I should go in now. Any advice??

YOu should ring and ask for advice even if it's just for peace of mind, I don't really know a lot about it all I'm waiting on my results too

I called them back...they didn't think it was anything to worry about, but it's hard not to stress isn't it? I'll ask the doc tomorrow.

Let me know how your results go - hope all is well

have mentioned this to my midwife today, and they were really shocked and took blood straight away, sent it off by 1:00pm and i get the results at about half 6 this evening... hoping everything is ok, because as said above, i'm 37 weeks on friday, so a bit concerned that it may harm baby xx
