I had it with 2 of my pregnancy I survived my my whole journey being pregnant. 1 one I didn’t know they have medicine to calm it down so I was really in so much pain and going crazy but finally once you have baby your back to normal.

I had it also I was soooo itchy but effects of cholestasis should mean baby should be delivered earlier not no later I was induced at 38 weeks he wanted to do 37 but I said 38 would be fine bc my blood work levels were very low at that point and not too worrisome.

You have to deliver by 37 weeks or could be still born I had it with my 5th and 6th and possibly my 4th they don’t know how my 4th survived until his due date

Yes I had it with both my kids. It was awful, I had allll the symptoms you could get with it, not just itching. You’ll get extra monitoring 2x a week, URSO meds. And be sure to take it, it protects your baby. Level of bile acids determines when you’ll be induced.

I had it with all 3 of my pregnancies. Bathe in oatmeal baths and take the urso. They usually induce by 37 weeks.

My sister had this… they gave her meds and took baby at 35 weeks
