Hi, i had a difficult pregnancy with my first baby and in the third trimester i started itching really bad. I kept going to my emergency antenatal ward and they kept sending me home telling me it was my hormones. At the time i was unaware of this condition but one of the midwives told me about it but said it was very rare and highly unlikely i had it. I was sent home again. I had an appointment at my doctors then for my normal check-up and my midwife there wouldn't even ring to check my blood results because of the low risk i might have it. Anyway, at 39 weeks and 1day i had a check-up at the hospital and they said they had 'just had my results back' (yeah sure) and i did have the condition and i was rushed for a scan. Thankfully everything was ok and i was induced the following morning. It was just luck that my baby was still healthy and the midwives should take the condition more seriously in my opinion. There is a hight risk that once you have had the condiotion in one pregnancy, you will always have it in other pregnancies so i WILL NOT BE messed around next time. At the end of the day, you know your own body and if you feel something isnt right then keep on at them till they sort it out.
