Too early for cholestasis?

Hi, I'm currently 28 weeks with baby number 2. During my first pregnancy I was diagnosed with obstetric cholestasis at about 33 weeks, induced early. For the last few days my feet have been itching and now my hands, but I thought it was really uncommon to start before 30 weeks. I had routine bloods done at my GTT today and I've got a routine MW appt tomorrow so I can bring it up then, I was just curious to see if anyone has experience of this before 30 weeks.

Hi. I would ask your midwife to take bloods. I had OC first time and have it again now. Started with an itchy head so they did bloods. First one was ok but week later was elevated. I am on meds now and due to be induced at 37 weeks. On the plus side the meds appear to have got my levels under control now.

Sorry I didn't say I had signs of OC from about 26 weeks this time

I had OC earlier the second time I had it too. From about 26 weeks.

Thanks very much. I was hoping I'd avoid it this time but I think that was just wishful thinking. I should have my routine bloods back today so I can discuss with the midwife.
