  • When you are pregnant, there is not much that can be done. I have bad gallstones, and lots of attacks. Im 25wks preggo. My ob gave me darvacett to take during the bad ones. I have found that standing in the shower helps ALOT. Eat a very bland diet. Low cholesterol. No fried foods. Those are triggers for attacks.

  • Watch what you eat and avoid foods that are acidic like spaghetti sauce, bacon, and sausage, pretty much anything that could give you heartburn. I had this problem with my second pregnancy and had to watch what I ate because of gall bladder issues. The doctor told me to have it taken out after the pregnancy and that if I didn't and were to get pregnant again, the problems would probably be worse. I'm 32 weeks along and haven't had any gall bladder problems this time.
