Brief Answer: could be fatty liver of pregnancy Detailed Answer: Hi, It seems like fatty liver of pregnancy. With limited details you provided and with out completely testing for other conditions,it is very difficult to tell the prognosis. If platelet count, ultrasound abdomen and complete blood picture are normal, you need not worry about yourself and your baby. Liver enzymes should normalize after delivery. All the best.
