I'm 39 weeks on wednesday and last night I noticed my feet and ankles had swollen really badly. I have noticed a little swelling in my ankles for a few weeks but nothing to be concerned about. Also, for the past few days my hands and feet have been so itchy that I've nearly shed blood itching them. I've told the MW about the itchiness and she did a liver profile blood test for something called cholestasis and nobody has rung me so I'm in the clear. All the MW's have gone home now though obviously. What should I do wait till monday for my routine ante-natal or give the labour ward a ring (as they are the on-call midwifes at this time)? Thanks in advance.
