I was diagnosed last week. They gave me steroids to mature the babies lungs and htey are considering inducing after an amnio at 36 or 37 weeks. I was very nonchalant about the diagnosis until the itching got really bad yesterday. Now I'm like WTF?? I want to peel my own eyes out here, it is so itchy!
My levels were very mild the first bloodwork I had, they are doing them again tomorrow. It takes a week to get the #'s back - I hate that!?
I was diagnosed at 30 weeks, and ended up delivering DS by emergency c/s at 35 weeks.
Did your OB prescribe ursodiol (brand names Actigall or Urso-Forte) or anything for you?
The itching is TERRIBLE. Hang in there. The good news is it goes away almost immediately after you deliver. Page me on 12-24 if you want more details on my pregnancy and birth/first few weeks story.
