Hi so I just wanted to get a little advice from those who have had gallbladder issues pregnant. I'm 14 weeks 4 days & having what I'm pretty sure are gallbladder attacks. It's about 30-45 min after I eat but as of last night I have full on diarrhea.. Sorry tmi. It's been going on for months just not severe. I haven't seen my ob this prenancy but I am a returning patient of his & have my appointment one week from today.. Should I call my ob office, go to er or urgent care center? will they even do anything when im 14 weeks pregnant? i live out of town & making it to a doctor appointment tomorrow is close to impossible due to wok schedules. Any advice would be so appreciated.. I'm miserable :(

Call your OB, he either 1) may see you earlier or 2) schedule you with a surgeon.
It is feasible that they may take your gallbladder out while you're pregnant. It can be done laproscopically until you're 26 weeks.
I personally opted to wait because I have had gall bladder attacks for years and was told to "deal with it" from one set of doctors, so one doctor is going to stitch me up and sent me right over to the other.

Good luck.
