Scratching like a dog or cat....
Another ridiculous thing happened to me last night.. I started scratching like crazy.... I am not sure what happened.. I just woke up scratching my hands, palms, arms.... very itchy. Apparently it is called "obstetric cholestasis" which is a rare condition in late pregnancy that is caused by bile salts being deposited under the skin. If it gets very severe, it may lead to maternal jaundice, liver failure, premature delivery and even stillbirth.. great! .. another thing to worry about!
I wonder if this is similar to something that Goat had.. where she kept on scratching and scratching and driving herself crazy.
Will check with gynae when I see him next this week. Due for CTG tomorrow anyway.
