I've had gallbladder problems for about 2 1/2 years. After my first major attack, I went to the ER where the doctor told me it was gas or indigestion. When I told him no, he said "You never know." So I never went back to any doctor, because I figured they'd all tell me the same, when I knew it had to be something more. My mother told me it sounded like my gallbladder. While pregnant with my daughter, I had no problems whatsoever, and those attacks were few and far between.
In January [almost 5 months post partum] I had the worst attack of my life, went to the ER where they confirmed it was my gallbladder and admitted me for surgery! Turns out my gallbladder was badly scarred and I had many stones.
My family keeps asking me if having a problem with my gallbladder might have triggered something in my body to cause PIH/Pre-E. In any case, it's very strange indeed.
So that's where I've been. Dealing with hectic holidays, gallbladder surgery, and now my sister who is 34 weeks, just found out her son has HLHS Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome which requires 3 surgeries in 2 years and has a 75-80% survival rate. We're staying strong. We figure my problems with my pregnancy and my daugther's stay in the NICU were just to prepare us for this lil one's birth. :)
I hope everything has been going good for you ladies and your little ones.
