Hi all, This is my first post really. Other than the introduction, I am a little shy at first I suppose.
I am currently 9 weeks. I found out around 4 weeks. This pregnancy as been all sorts of odd. I have been with the father for 4 yrs now but I have known him since I was 8 yrs old. For years we have been trying NOT to get pregnant. Because of this I am usually a mess if I am even a day late on my time of the month, it was just 4 or 5 months ago I remember freaking out when I was 3 days late... Though this time it didn't even seem to cross my mind.. Others asked and I just laughed, I had been struggling for 2 years with a sever gallbladder issue that pretty much made it impossible to eat anything some days to the point that just putting food in my mouth made me vomit.. So the constant sickness I was use to the aversion to food was all normal life for me. In fact just 3 weeks before I had been to the E.R. where they had then told me that because of my extreme symptoms I was an excellent candidate for surgery. They had done urine and blood test and made no mention of pregnancy.. So when I was three days late I wasn't to worried I was bloated and feeling crampy so I told myself it was fine.. it will show tomorrow.. I told myself they same thing on day 4, 5 and 6 as well..
Day six, I took the test and there were those 2 pink lines.. I cried.. out of shock and excitement and fear lol but After 24 hours it all settled in but the strange thing is.. my sickness has STOPPED, I can eat anything, and I don't get sick.. for 2 years it was a battle to eat food but now, when I should be sickest.. I am fine, I keep telling people I don't even "Feel" pregnant.. How can this be lol?
Symptoms I did have.
- Strange dreams
- frequent trips to bathroom, even during the night.
- Sweats. mostly at night. I am usually very cold matured
- Fatigue - I went from a cronic insomniac to wanting to sleep all day
Because your so dang sick frrom your gallbladder! Those little punks are total jerks! I had mine taken out in 07. And after i recovered from the surgery i was amazed how much better i felt and realized i had been feeling like crap for a lot longer than i had thought. Dirty rotten gallbladders always messing with people.
They really are evil buggars! I had been living with this for 2 years, with Drs telling me it was some psychological eating disorder, friends telling me I was a hypochondriac and anorexic/bulimic or just plain dramatic.. before finally someone said "hey, she is really broken"
Oh i know! I kind of felt bad for awhile and one morning i woke up and my chest hurt so bad i seriously thought i was having a heartattack. I woke my husband up and told him to take me to the hosp he took one look at me with one eye open and said get in the truck. Hours later and $4000 later worth of tests later the doc tapped one time where my gallbladder was and said yup its gallbladder. Two weeks later they ripped that bad boy out! It sucks its like its poisening your whole body.
It sucks when they don't know what's wrong with you! I've been there, done that, too!
As for feeling better now you're pregnant, it's probably because your immune system changes to accomodate the baby, so inflammation dies down. I have an autoimmune disease and the same thing has happened.
Enjoy it while it lasts, but be prepared for a relapse after the birth.
your body is preparing for baby! your LO told your gallbladder to shut the hell up because he/or she is running things now lol. You gotta eat and get tons of sleep.
congratulations. have a h&h 9 months!
Hahah if there is a relapse in the future maybe I never want to stop being preg.! lol J/k It has been nice to be able to eat so well and not be sick at all. I hope it last the rest of this preg. I can't believe I am already 10 weeks and it has all been sooth sailing.
I have a huge gallbladder issue.. i take med's for it when it gets bad i have a anti spasm pill and a pain killer that i usually take when it got bad.. I would pass out because of the pain being so unbearable i would literally lose my breath and not be able to breathe my attacks were soo bad... I had went to the hospital once they told me it was "nothing" i was backed up a little? i didnt feel backed up?... I knew it was more of an issue then what they "found" it took me literally passing out at a grocery store from an attack and my boyfriend carrying me unconscious to the car and speeding me to the emergency room.. they took me in a stretcher right away my heart rate was thru the ceiling and my blood pressure was up ALOT.. they then took me serious and knew they needed to do further testing i spend the evening/all the next day in the hosp doing tests.. they then discovered on the ultrasounds my gallbladder was bad and i had gall stones.. I FRIGGING knew it!
I already seen my surgeon im waiting for surgery but in canada that stuff is such a long wait... so right now i have to " deal with it"... I havent had an attack in prob 3 months weirdly enough... although today i had this weird feeling from where i usually feel them coming on augh.. and i heard gallbladder attacks are the WORSE when your preg.... right now i cant take my meds for it obviously... my dr told me i had to go to the emerg when i take them so i can get them treated properly and safely being preg!! im hoping i dont even have to go that route that ill just be gallbladder free for a few more months...
