    my sister is 36+ weeks and she's had a bit of itching. myself, my mum and cousin had OC so we told my sis to make an appointment with her midwife. she has an appointment on thursday but today she had some green discharge and i'm a bit worried. i'm not sure whether to tell her to just wait until thursday to ask her midwife about it at her appointment or if she should go see her doc tomorrow! i know it could be an infection but it could also be the show. i'm really not sure what to advise.
    please could someone give me some advice!?!

    thank you

    Itching can be preeclampsia..
    i'd phone the midwife even if it is nothing
    best to be safe

    Itching can be a sign of choleostasis, a serious liver problem during pregnancy. definately get it checked!

    I would ring tonight to ask, they may take her in to check her blood tonight- at least she will know sooner!

    I just read this I hope she was checked out by someone! Itching isn't that bad (or so I have been told) but I was really worried about the green discharge. Did everything go ok???
