L&D for me

Just a quick update on me and baby M.. We spend late night/ most of the morning in L&D I went b/c I was having really painful stomach pains, not like contractions but I wasn't sure what it was.. better to be safe then sorry. Turns out I have Gallstones. Everything is OK for now but I have to watch what I eat even closer. Lovely. As if doing the GDM diet is easy now I have to watch my fats too.

Ouch. Sorry about the gallstones but thankfully baby is ok. Are you going to have to have surgery at some point?

They don't like to do surgery this far into the pregnancy so it will have to wait until I deliver.

That sounds most unpleasant! And to restrict your diet further, yikes. I'll bet you have your first post delivery meal all planned out already!

Not just a meal... Meals I have a list of all the things I want to have as soon as I can when baby M arrives.

I am wondering if they can do the gall bladder surgery with my C section if I end up having one.

oohh how painful!!! I've struggled with gallbladder issues for the last 4 yrs, soo not fun. I hope things calm down for you & the pain stays away! *hugs* No idea if they can do a gallbladder removal with a c-section, but is worth asking! With my sisters surgery they went through her belly buttons, so their kinda close to that! lol I imagine it might be possible.

GS are common to develop in pregnancy, but they suck! I hope that you will not have too many issues with them between now and delivery day!

Ouch! Hope the next weeks go by quickly so that you can get those taken out! Pregnancy is an uncomfortable, unpleasant experience for some at the end as it is, nevermind having something else like that on top of it. Hang in there!

Gallstones are horrible. I got them shortly after DS was born. After about a year of having attacks, I decided it was time to do something about them. Life is much better without them! Sorry you have to modify your diet more. Hope you are feeling better.
