My midwives absolutely ROCK!!!! As you might remember my itching started about 4 weeks ago or so and the first liver analysis I took was 3/19 and that is when I began the liver cleansing diet and supplements suggested by my midwife. My numbers were
Alkaline Phosphatase, S 220 (normal range is 25-150)
AST 98 (1-40)
ALT 170 (1-40)

Just got my second liver analysis done (4/1) and my results are as follows
Alkaline Phosphatase, S 249 (Still high, but not a big deal because this number rises with every pregnant woman since the placenta makes this)
AST 44
ALT 66

Also, I would be willing to bet if I got another test today my levels would be even lower because my itching has almost ceased completely since that last test! I started drinking a fresh liver cleansing juice everyday (juicing 1 beet, 3 carrots, 2 apples, 1 lemon, 1/2 grapefruit, 1 small bunch of grapes and adding 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil). I am so excited I can't stand it, LOL! I am so thankful that I go to such wonderful, knowledgeable midwives and I don't have to be induced! Just wanted to share with you ladies!

Thank you for my beautiful siggy Vicki!

See my growing belly!

It is November of 2012 and I hope you see this!!!! I am so excited I found your post as my daughter in law was just diagnosed with this and is 32 wks..... how did this go for you? What kind of juicer did you use? Can you use a VitaMix or did the midwife have you only use a 'juicer' like Jack LaLane's?? I hope now that I am on this that you could possibly even email me....how I hope you see this!! Thanks for any help or advice!!!
