My itching has been ramping up too. My bile acids when I first had any itching were at 9, so totally acceptable, but last pregnancy they never went above a 4...and I never itched as much as I have been this last week. I had mild ICP with babies #6 and #7...so we will wait and see. I've got enough issues this time that I get to start NST's next week at 30 weeks.

What did you're bile acids come back at?? Hope the itching isn't too insane!
I don't know what the numbers were, but she said they were considered "normal within cholestasis range". I woke up itching worse than when I went to bed last night. I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE A OVER A MONTH OF THIS LEFT!!! I might jump right out of my skin before then. What a maddening condition this is. I was really enjoying this pregnancy, too. So that stinks.

I guess we'll just start double timing it to get the house ready for the new addition.
