Hi Ladies,

Just as an update I had my most recent tests and they showed a little bit of improvement. My liver enzymes look good so whatever I experienced didn't seem to be liver related (thank goodness). Looks like we'll be able to make it to 37 weeks after all!

Thanks for all the support!

I will keep my fingers crossed for good results from your blood work. My epigastric pain was transient for a few weeks, and I never mentioned it until things got really bad. It is good that you let your doctor know that you are starting to have pain so they can monitor you more closely. Good luck!

I did see my high risk doctor today and he's repeating my blood and urine labs tomorrow so hopefully that'll give us an idea if something is going on. Wish me luck!

Mine came and went for about 3 weeks, to the extreme where in the morning it was so bad I could barely stand up and didn't think I'd make it to work- I toughed it out and went in and it got a little better. I called my doctor and they wanted to see me and by the time I was there, it was completely gone. I think I went a few days after that without the pain coming back at all, but I ended up in the hospital a week later with class I HELLP.

So definitely have your doctor run some labs.

Mine also came and went a bit in the beginning and then was constant after that. Can't hurt to give a call and see if they can check your blood work!

Well now I don't know what to think! It started to get a little worse (about a 4 or 5) and then suddenly went away completely. Maybe it was nothing?
