    That's a huge leap. Have they put you on any meds? How are you doing?

    That's great Vicci, glad they've come down. My feet have been itchy at night again. I got tested again on thurs but all normal thankfully. (I had OC in previous pregnancy) so happy I've managed to avoid it this time.

    Bile acids are at 9. The other two enzymes are raised which might need me to see an obstetrician at the hosp. Got to go docs at 3pm so he can ring them to see what they wanna do x

    Morning Ladies,

    Just after a bit of advice really.. I am almost 20 weeks and very early on in my pregnancy I started getting really itchy soles of my feet. I didn’t even relate it to pregnancy, I just thought it was dry skin or washing powder or something! It got quite bad sometimes, when I was driving a few times I had to pull over on the hard shoulder to itch my feet! This went on for about 6 weeks but a few weeks ago it stopped and touch wood my feet don’t itch anymore.
    I didn’t think any more of it until I saw this thread and then had a look at some of the websites and noticed that itchy feet was one of the main symptoms.

    So I’m just a little concerned now..Should I call the Midwife? Or could it just be down to hormones as it stopped about 3 weeks ago? Would it just stop like that or get progressively worse?
    Also from reading, its more common in the third trimester and mine started very early on…

    So just after a bit of advice really..thank you!

    From what my midwife told me, it can start at any point. Just more common in the third trimester. Never hurts to mention it to her :) I was putting my itching down to changing body lotions, glad I didn't In the end, and was sent for a simple blood test, after three blood tests and having myself scratching till the cows come home, I was diagnosed. Always better to be safe than sorry :) x

    Clarep always good to give them a call. Simple blood test will rule it out. Think earliest ever case of OC was diagnosed at 8 weeks. So does no harm to get yourself checked out.

    Gemma good luck tomorrow, how are you feeling about it?
