  1. But is this being confused with PUPPS?

    Not a very thorough explanation.

    “Experts recommend early delivery as the safest course of action for ICP pregnancies. At 37 weeks and 2 days”

  2. I suffered from cholestasis of pregnancy.My mother had it and never realized it was a liver condition, until I had my own diagnosis.
    Very scary. My son was born with lots of respiratory complications. But having him at 36 weeks was the only option. After weeks in the NICU, we have been very blessed with a healthy and full of energy handsome son💙

  3. I suffered from it as well. The itching began at 35 weeks. Had to deliver at 38 weeks since the tests weren’t showing I had it until my 38 week checkup. The recommended time to deliver is at most 37 weeks.

    I’m thankful my baby is alive and well. Be your own advocate, always.
