Should a baby be born at an ALT 32?

hi, I am 31 weeks pregnant.. I have detected with obstetric cholestasis.. my doc had asked me to do LFTs.in that my ALT was 127 which normal value is upto 31.. my doc said that if that value will not come down they have to do delivery. is it safe to deliver in 32 or 33 weeks?? She has given me urso, vitamin k , and myteka tablets, which really helped as my itching problem is totally gone.. but i am curious about early delivery..please advice
