I also had gallstones while i was pregnant with my first, i started getting sttacks at 15 weeks pregnant, went to hospital 3 times during the pregnancy told me just was baby pains, finally at 31 week my partner took me to hospital and told them we were not leaving until they figured me out they did one blood test and i swear 2 mins later i had 15 dr's in my room, my gall stones had left my gall bladder blocking my liver and pancreas which caused them both to be infected, they told my mum and partner that my baby and I would not last the night. We did with a lot of fight. My baby girl was born vaginally 1 week after being admitted, she was very sick, taken to Melb, an hour away, i didnt get to see her for 5 days, she was in hospital a total of nine weeks, i stayed for 2 weeks then had my gall bladder out, after that i had more attacks, 4 operations and 10 months later, my attacks stopped, but the stones had badly damaged my liver and pancreas, after 3 years i was finally healthy enough to try for another baby. I'm now 37 weeks pregnant with our secong and I'm looking forward to a "normal" healthy baby. I too have been told this is common but I got dismissed time after time about my pain, i was told to suck it up, that it was just indigestion.yeah right! Well I hope you and your baby are doing well now.
