I apologize in advance for this post being a whine fest.
Ultrasound showed LOTS of BIG gallstones. He said, pain will continue as long as I have my gallbladder, stones are too big to dissolve, and when my gallbladder contracts [which is every time I eat] the stones make it impossible for it to work. AKA- pain.
I did some research online and I read a lot of women have them, and are going through the same thing as me. They are all just hoping to get to 32 weeks so they know their baby will be okay. Because if we decide to do surgery while pregnant, it has to be during the 2nd trimester. But if we try to wait until after pregnancy and something happens in the 3rd trimester and they have to do surgery, it could cause pre-term labor and a baby only has %90 chance to live at birth of 32 weeks, so any less than that is dangerous.
I really need to just rely on God. He can heal me, and keep my baby safe. I see OBGYN Wednesday, and the surgeon that day, so hopefully we will have a plan after that. I would lie if I said I wasn't scared. I am not feeling well even now, and I still have 5 more months to go.
PS Web said gallstones get worse in 3rd trimester.
Would really appreciate prayer for me and baby.
PSS I was able to see my little blessing on the ultrasound, doing well growing and strong. Me? Not so much. As long as the baby is healthy.
Love, The Curvy Housewife
