i've no idea what they were shocked about.. that seemed strange to me too..

i rung last night... they said that not all the blood results were back...

i've taken piriton and used some calamine lotion, which didnt seem to help...

but last night i was scratching all over for about half an hour or so,, with my long nails too i didnt think i'd have any skin left!

just this second tried to ring them again and they've said that they cant get onto the computers coz they're down atm, but will ring me back in half an hour with the full results...

im still itching today though... so what i dont understand is. if its not OC then what the hell is it and why am i itching?! dont think i can take this for another 3 weeks..

Hope your results come back clear, I had these tests done too and my Docs took ages to get them back and I ended up collecting them and taking them to a hospital appointment last Friday and they checked them for me plus done tests to check bile salt levels and these were back in a couple of hours, mine came back ok but I've still been itching like crazy too I have marks on my arms legs and feet from so much itching - my feet tend to be the worst. I have to go to my Docs again in the morning for repeat tests but as I'm 38 weeks now it makes me wonder what is the point! The results wont be back until at least Tuesday - I could have gone into labour by then anyway. Like you though I'm wondering why all this painful itching if it's not OC - I've never had the soles of my feet be this itchy in my life before. Good luck with your reslults and hope you find something out soon x

been up the hosp all day.. as i was itching they wanted me to go in..

went in.. they then phoned the lab for the bile results... and its high.. so i've got OC...

they've given me some tablets to try and reduce it.. i've gotta go back for repeat bloods on monday.. i've got another antenatal appointment on wednesday, so i'll have the results then and on that wednesday they said that they will be planning an induction!!

but don't worry, did they monitor you when went to hospital?

I found the best thing to stop the itching is magicool spray from boots.

As you are now very close to 37 weeks I would expect them to rush the bloods through on monday.

Don't worry about your induction either, I heard loads of bad stuff about them but TBH i was more relaxed and had an easier labour/birth than I did with Emily when I went naturally.

I'm always about if you want a chat or need info, though it was 4 yrs ago for me LOL
