    Yup! Ended up being induced 2 days after my due date. I only really got the itching on my belly though.

    I had bloods done at 37 weeks for it but the results weren't chased up and it wasn't until 39 weeks that we found out!

    Hi There, I have it was diagnosed at 28 weeks. I had a overnight stay in hostpital so they could monitor baby from then onwards Ive been taking tablets to control it and my levels have dropped so it can be controlled I also go for weekly monitoring of the babys heart beat at the hostpital. Im actually being induced today as my levels were so high orginially, whilst i was in hostpital they did say maybe 35r weeks but the meds have helped. If it is that please dont worry the care you recieve will be second to none and with the medication it can be controlled it may mean you are being induced earlier like I am but its not all bad. Good Luck hunnie and keep us posted! XXXX
