I'm exactly 19 weeks now, as of week 17 I started to get some stomach pain and digestion problems.. Ended up for an afternoon at the hospital and when I went to see my doctor for a regular check up, he tells me he received the report from the hospital and that I possible have gallbladder stones. Well since the weekend the pain is getting worse when I sit to long.. I have an office job. I don't want to leave now already just because the bigger the baby is getting the more it will put pressure onto the gallbladder.

I don't know what to do. I'm trying to stay away from fatty foods, which is not easy as most everything I can eat now in pregnancy is fatty..

I'm seeing my specialist next week then I will ask her what I can do..

Poor you. Gallbladder pain is the worst.
I had really bad gallstones towards the end of my pregnancy with DD. It ended up with pancreatitus and me having to be operated on at 37 +3 weeks. and having many pain killing drugs including morphine.
I hope the specialist has some good pointers for you x

Ask your GP or MW for a referral to a dietician, you can avoid trigger foods with help!

Feeling your pain, I was diagnosed with 3 rather large kidney stones last week - when they're playing up its unbearable sad but others are correct, they will so everything they can to make sure you are comfortable. My consultant has given me coedine for the pain, recommended some procedures but as I am 35+2 we are going down the induction route. Hope you can get some answers and they look after you.

This sounds really tough! I'm sorry you're going through this, I can't imagine how hard it would be to be working and have all that going on! Really hope they can help ease the pain soon. xx
