A friend of mine brought up a good point regarding how my nausea has lasted longer with each pregnancy (about two weeks longer each time) possibly related to diminished gallbladder function.  I consider myself to be relatively healthy but my mom as well as both grandmothers have all had their gallbladders removed and I'm at "higher risk" since I've been pregnant more times than they were (according to various articles the chances go up with each pregnancy).  

 

I haven't ever had any "attacks" or anything like that so my interest is more in supporting my gallbladder so it stays healthy through this pregnancy and beyond.  My main concern is getting plenty of protein without it putting more stress on my gallbladder. I've been eating eggs with breakfast most days and it makes me feel a little better, actually.  My nausea seems to get far worse at night (which is why my friend suggested it could be affected by my gallbladder since some gallbladder issues get worse at night - ?).  

 

Please share if you know of any good articles on gallbladder health during pregnancy and good sources of foods that support the gallbladder and maybe things to avoid.

I had gallbladder issues with my dd1 and had to have it removed when she was 3 months old. I would agree that the attacks were worse at night.
I think this website (see below) has a lot of good info on what to eat and what to avoid, I used after I had mine removed.
