I'm 8 weeks pregnant with my second child. I've been having stomach problems for the past 4 years and over the past two weeks have started to have gallbladder attacks. On my mother's side, both great-grandmothers, grandmother, mother, and her two sisters have all had gallbladder disease/stones and have had their gallbladders removed. After being diagnosed with gallstones, I have been placed on a low/no fat diet and am now only having mild attacks. Problem is, out of the foods that I can eat, I have been getting heartburn, nausea, and feel downright ill (I also have GERD). I'm really considering having my gallbladder removed during the 2nd trimester due to my illness and family history. Just wanted to know if anyone has had or knows anyone who has had to go through this.
