Gallbladder Surgey While 31 Weeks Pregnant

I am just about 31 weeks pregnant and I have had terrible gallbladder problems for the last month. My dr was waiting it out and trying to make me as comfortable as he possibly could until the baby was born and then i would have surgery and get my gallbladder taken out. Well i got a phone call this morning and he is having me go to madison to meet with a surgeon to possibly get surgery done now verses waiting. I have been reading stories online and i am really becoming scared.. reason why i have to go to madison to get the surgery is bc where i am from the hospital is not equipted to deliver a baby before 36 weeks. my dr said the only bad thing that could happen during surgery would possibly be preterm labor. but i am reading there is a risk of a miscarriage... someone please help?!?!

you need to weigh your pros and cons of waiting or going through with the surgery
