Hiya, severe itch is a symptom that needs checked out, can be related to a liver disorder. Is it very bad??

Yes if it's all over you must see your midwife asap for bloods.

Give the maternity assessment unit a ring, they'll want to do some blood tests to check your liver is functioning correctly probably.

Def call the midwife who will probably ask you to go in to do a blood test. I ignored my itching until 38 weeks and was not prepared at all to brought in to be induced straight away as bloods showed obstetric cholestasis.

Don't worry about it though, it can generally be managed well but they may encourage inducing at 37 weeks if OC is diagnosed.

Good luck
