    Im 34 weeks with my second child.
    Im feeling very run down right now and for two days now, ive noticed some itching.

    Last night it was like my belly was on fire - I had to itch it soooo much that I woke with tiny blood dots due to blood raising to the surface of my skin (on bump)

    Then through out the day ive noticed some itching on my hands, feet, back and scalp.

    Not sure if im imagening it. Its not severe, just mild at the moment. Does OC start of mild?

    Will be seeing midwife monday x

    Hi

    I started itching at about 34 weeks too. Mine was quite intense for a week on back, scalp and stomach, but has since become very mild.
    Had a blood test the week i started itching which came back that my bile salt levels were high so was sent to local maternity assessment unit to be monitored.
    It was confirmied i have OC have had weekly blood tests and scans since.
    All ok, but just want me and baby to be monitored.
    Im due on Sun 6th Feb but im booked in to be induced on Weds as they dont want me to go over due date, i believe this is normal for people who have OC.

    Hope this helps x

    Thank you for your reply.

    I wish you both all the love and best wishes for your induction.

    Spoken to the midwife -she has said she'll do the tests but because its not severe on my hands and feet, she doubts it is OC.

    Glad I read your post and if it gets worse, Ill stand my ground.

    Take care

    Glad everything is ok for you. What flavour is your little bundle?

    My results will take up to 5 days once she's taken blood. It's not severe but it all starts when I sit down to relax of an evening.my feet and hands get really hot and tight. Luckily we have hard flooring through out the house, so keeping them on the cold floor calms them down.
    The scalp and back is the worst part for itching at the moment .

    Thanks again x

    We're on team yellow. So excited cant wait to meet him/her. Although a bit anxious about being induced!!

    I really feel for you with the itching its not nice at all. Hopefully it will ease off for you in the next few weeks. x

    I'm not surprised that you're nervous. You have every right to be induced under these circumstances, I'm sure.

    That would be nice :) I made my belly quite sore one night from itching.

    Good luck with your delivery. I'm being induced at 38wk anyway due to server spd and depression. But watch this space on the blood results too :)

    My sister had it with her first pregnancy, but not second. I didn't have it with my first, just this time x

    Not great I'm afraid. It seems like one problem after another at moment. I'm suffering with depression, but luckily I knew the signs as I had pnd with my first born so am getting support. And hubby couldn't be looking after me any better than he is :)

    Now it's the itching! Driving me crazy :)

    Placenta has moved too which is good xxx

    Ohh no :hugs: I'm glad you have good support and that's so good that you recognised it yourself :)
    How far along are you now? (I forget when people don't have tickers to remind me ;-) lol) And when are you having these bloods taken? I hope things get sorted soon :hug:

    Oooh that's good! Mine too! :D
