Has anyone been diagnosed with cholestasis during pregnancy? If so, which symptoms did you present with?
I have been diagnosed with cholestasis of pregnancy. I started getting extremely itchy every where on my body about 3 weeks ago. I am currently 35 weeks and on ursodiol. The ursodiol helps a lot with the itchy - but from time to time I get itchy still. Being itchy on your palms and bottoms of your feet is a good sign you have it - which I was itchy there - but was itchy EVERYWHERE on my body to the point of insanity!!
My Dr. is saying inducing from 36-37 weeks to prevent the chance of having a stillborn baby. Very scary stuff - but if you have a Dr. that catches this and diagnosis with treatment right away - you've got a good Dr.! Some Dr.'s have not heard of it and some Dr.'s don't believe in its seriousness (especially with the still born factor) and that is dangerous. If you think you have it and your Dr. says no - get a 2nd opinion!
