Did you have Cholestasis???

My liver enzymes have been high, and are getting higher. The doctor did a hepatitis panel - negative. I have had my gall bladder removed in 2006, and had to have stones removed from the duct and the duct made larger in 2009. There is a possibility that there is another stone, or that the baby is causing pressure that is "kinking" the bile duct. No matter what, it is considered Cholestasis. The elevated enzymes can harm the baby, even cause fetal death. I am worried that on Monday, the doctor will suggest early induction. Granted, I am 36 weeks, but I am very frightened.

I guess I do not have a question. Just looking for support.
