In ICP, the bile acids don't flow properly and build up in your body instead.
However, itching can be a symptom of a liver condition called intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP), also known as obstetric cholestasis (OC). It affects 1 in 140 pregnant women in the UK, around 5,500 a year.
Wearing loose clothes may help prevent itching, as your clothes are less likely to rub against your skin and cause irritation.

If you are diagnosed with ICP, you will have regular liver function tests so your doctor can monitor your condition.
There is no agreed guideline on how often these tests should happen, but the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) and the British Liver Trust advise weekly tests.The main symptom is itching, usually without a rash.The itching is often more noticeable on the hands and feet, but can be all over the body.If you have had ICP in a previous pregnancy, you have a high chance of developing it again in a subsequent pregnancy.Some studies have found that babies whose mothers have ICP have a higher chance of being born prematurely or stillborn.ICP seems to run in families, but it can occur even if there is no family history.
