Back from yet another hospital visit in limbo!
Am 35wks today. Just got back from yet another trip to the hospital! Woke up early hours of this morning with severe itching to my hands and feet, which i have had for some time but it had eased off yet has come back strong (had OC with my daughter just over a year ago so its highly likely im going to get it again) but if that wasnt enough noticed some blood when i wiped myself after going to the loo. Have been really unwell recently with a seven day sickness bug so know i was a little dehydrated but also had noticed that my wee was very dark orange. Called my local birth centre and they advised me to go round to the hospital so off me and my partner trotted after having to get my mum round to look after our other daughter. They said i have plus 3 protein in my urine which is high but my BP was fine. Had an internal done and they couldnt see where the bleeding had come from but said it had stopped. They wanted to keep me in over night and do a liver ultra sound in the morning to check my gall bladder but luckily the on duty consultant did one today which came back fine and they also scanned the baby and he is completely fine and is the right size for 35wks. She said she was happy for me to go home for the rest of today but i have to go round to my local birth centre in the morning to get my urine checked again and my BP done and to go round to the day assessment unit on wednesday for a fetal heart screening. Still awaiting my blood results from today, ASTs and bile acids (which can take up to 10 days to come back, still waiting for ones back from last monday, grrrr!). I just feel in limbo at the mo as i suppose until they get my bile results they cant diagnose me but the itching is bad and generally just feel crap. Does anyone know what the earliest they usually deliver if you have OC as when i had it with my daughter i didnt get it til i was 36wks and they got my bile acid results the day i turned 37wks so induced me striaight away coz they were so high, just wondered what they do if you get it earlier.
