I said it to my mw the first time [ itchy palms and feet] - she took no notice. I sait it again to a different mw and she sent me for a blood test. I got a phone call and was told it was abnormal...i was in a panic as was told just to wait to see the mw a few days later. Not good enough, i phoned back. Seems my blood test was normal..for a pregnant woman! Anway, i have to say, the doctor knew NOTHING about this disorder!!!! He had to phone the maternity hospital to find out about it. Beware, a lot of doctors especially know nothing about it. When i had my ds, there was a lady who had it at 33wks. They had admitted her and were debating whether to deliver her baby. The poor woman was so itchy everywhere, she was in an awful state. I felt for her. x I agree...dont take no for an answer. My palm has been itchy a few times in this pregnancy , nothing major...but i always think about it.
