hiiii,
Welcome to HCM.
You are currently suffering from Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy (ICP) which occurs in 3rd trimester due to increase bile acid secretion by impaired liver function.
Your liver enzymes are markedly elevated. Do corresponding blood for serum bile acid test.
The symptoms usually dissolve after the delivery of the baby.
So you have to take Tab ACTIBILE with other soothing agent like calamine lotion or other antihistamines.
Some harmful affect on fetus is there like Preterm delivery, Meconium staining during delivery and even IUFD. So need close monitoring and special consideration after fetal lung maturation (34 wks+). Always consult with your doctor.
Be well and take care.
