I looked into it when I had a couple attacks during my pregnancy with DS2 but when it stopped happening I didn't think about it anymore. There aren't any signs of gallstones though, so I don't think a flush would help. It seems like my gallbladder may just have reduced function, and not be moving things along like it should. Hopefully we can figure something out when I follow up this week.
How are you feeling in these early days? - Page 2
Gallbladder stuff is miserable! I had attacks with my first pregnancy, and then put off having it taken out for about 18 months. I had the surgery about 6 months ago, and feel so much better now. You can't do it while you're pregnant, but I'd consider having it out after the baby's born.
I had some pink spotting last night that totally freaked me out. I know everyone says it's normal, but it's so hard not to stress over it. I haven't seen anymore today, so I'm really hoping that I just overdid it yesterday. I never had any bleeding when I was pregnant with DD1, so this is all new for me. I'll probably call my doctor sometime today and see if I should get checked out.
Yuck, gallbladder stuff is no fun! Hope you feel better soon, Red.
Libby, I'm totally on edge about that stuff, too. I had sharp abdomen pains last night that woke me up and terrified me. Turns out it was just diarrhea pains, but I still freak out at every ache and pain and I scrutinize my TP like never before! This is such a anxiety-ridden time right now. I hope your doctor has some answers and that it's all normal.
AFM, despite the digestive bout last night, I've been feeling pretty good yesterday and today. My husband said I was the most animated he'd seen me in weeks. Hope you're all feeling good today!
Red, my DP had what seems like a gallbladder attack last night. It was her very first one, and she was in a ton of pain. We ended up in the ER until 3am (yawn! I'm tired today!!), but it suddenly passed, and she was fine. She has an ultrasound appointment this week. I can only imagine how you're feeling!!
LibbyLou, I hope your spotting has stopped. I had it the one time too, and it's very scary!! But, the fertility nurse assured me, that it has to be worsening with cramps in order for it to be something to worry about. So, I hope this helps soothe your fears a bit.
AFM, just hanging in and waiting for some stronger symptoms to start. Honestly, I'd appreciate some nausea right now!
I had my follow up ultrasound this morning and it confirmed the gallstones. The tech just said it was really hard to scan me (something about how my ribcage is), so that's why the ER doc couldn't see them. I have a surgery consult in a few weeks, looks like I'll be having it out at the beginning of the second trimester.
HI all... thought I wasn't going to be able to continue posting here due to what I thought was me miscarrying, but it seems I'm okay for the moment.
As far as symptoms go - not much to speak of. Breasts are a bit tender, mostly in the nipple area and I'm tired a lot. Hungry a lot too. I still get those little bitty cramps and twinges, which freak me out ten times as much as they did a couple days ago. I've been spotting a fair amount too. It started off dark red/brownish and now it's more of a light light brown/tan mixed in with my cm. It seems to be getting less and less each day, but it still freaks me right out.
Other then that I haven't had many symptoms... which was one of the reasons I was so sure I was miscarrying. Aside from what I mentioned above, it don't have many symptoms. Maybe because my HCG isn't that high yet?
I also feel cold all the time, which is a weird symptom. I don't remember that with my other 2 pregnancies.
I started in with nausea and exhaustion at 3w5d, at 4 wks (today) I could out-sniff a hound dog, my head is pounding, and I feel like crud. I'll take it!!! After a loss at 17 weeks in '06 and at 9 weeks (never developed) in '08 this is a VERY surprise baby with a wonderful man. I'm divorced and my other 3 will be 8, 10, and 12 when this one is born :) I was sick as all get out with my first, 3rd, and 4th (cord accident).
My SO doesn't have any kiddos and he has been fantastic. He's very involved and excited.
Happily carrying a rainbow baby!!!
Im so constipated!! Painfully, i was almost doubled over yesterday (IBS is such a joy, luckily I know its that rather than the baby). Its better now but OUCH. Im also having smell issues, I can smell anything and some smells turn my stomach. I picked up some coffee for a friend yesterday and almost got sick when I picked up the bag from the smell of it. Im not a coffee drink but Ive never minded the smell, even during previous pregnancies, before this. I almost got sick this morning from drinking something on an empty stomach. Oh and the hot/cold flashes are driving me nuts.
Other than that I have no symptoms at all
