Anyone have gallbladder problems during pregnancy?

I am currently 28 weeks pregnant with my 4th pregnancy. I have gallbladder problems so bad I can't eat and keep losing weight. My husband is fusturated with me for waking him up in the middle of the night to rush off to hospital  (hour and half away) for pain relief.  I was hoping that someone is in the same boat and can maybe offer advice.  I tried a fat free diet and now hardly eating but salads and smoothies.

Hi, I had my gallbladder taken out approx 3 months ago and had no idea at that stage that I was pregnant, however in my situation I had lost my baby as I wasn't eating and my gallbladder was very toxic! Have you organised to see a specialist to see what's going on with your gallbladder?

I see a lot of specialists. I saw a surgeon and he won't touch it tell after that baby is born. I am suppose to go see a GI specialist soon. The baby is so small because I can't eat.

Also try less calcium, it tends to make a difference as well

I don't eat dairy, beef, pork, fried foods, fat of any kind, or sugar.  I will look and see if there is calcium and anything else I might take. I am desperate, I tried it all and willing to try it. I even was drinking 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar a day.

I was recommended some diet changes because i was having a bad pain below the right side of my rib cage. My doctor said it was l gallbladder issues. He bauxite said he can't do anything until after the baby is born. However, i am not getting the pains because of my diet change. I love cheese and cutting out of my diet really helped. Avoid heavy dairy and grease and I'm sure you will notice a difference.

I already avoid those. I eat fruit and veggies smoothies, Raisin Bran cereal with unsweetened almond milk. Anything else I might try?

When you drink your apple cider vinegar try only two teaspoons with a teaspoon of lemon juice mixed into a glass of warm water. Do so on an empty stomach. Also, apple juice is great for this as well. I hope your pains go away.
