Stressed, Worried, and Sad

Well, I had to make a trip to the ER last night. I got good and bad news.

Good news - They saw 2 sacs so it looks like my RE was right about my HCG levels indicating twins. Couldn't see much more than that because I am only 5 weeks.

Bad - The dr's think my gallbladder is infected from a stuck gallstone. I say think because I would not let them do the final test (a gallbladder scan) to see if it was  If they are correct (my blood tests indicate they are), it needs to come out like ASAP. The ER dr says that if the surgery is done this early in pregnancy then there is less risk for complication and miscarriage but I think he was just trying to make me feel better. I am waiting on my OB's office to open so I can speak with a nurse there but I am freaking out.

I am incredibly sick from it (can't keep anything down) and in some serious pain. I don't know what to do.

It is a LOT easier to do the surgery now. My mon has the same issue when pg with my brother when she was around 20 weeks and they couldn't do the surgery then bc she was too far along.

I was the same when I was pregnant with my daughter but I went into premature labor at 7 months along and they were able to stop my labor. The reason why I went into premature labor was due to my gall stones. Take my advice and if they say yes surgery then do it because I suffered 3 LONG months in and out of the hospital due to mine...good luck and congrats on it bring twins :)
