    Could this be heartburn? It feels very similar to gallbladder pain just less intense. It gets worse after I eat. I see my doctor Tuesday and will ask then but I thought someone may know!!

    Hey I think I have a same situation as you. I've been having this for two days. It started Sunday night. I didn't know what it was, I thought it was UTI, but then I didn't feel any burning/stinging pain when I pee.

    I saw a doctor yesterday and the doctor took a urine test that will have the result by tomorrow.

    I don't know, this could be GI disorder which is I think quite normal for us in second trimester. The pain started after I ate my dinner, and I've been felling it all day, it's getting worse normally at night. Is this what you're experiencing too? Please share it with me.

    Thanks :D

    Urgh I have been experiencing what feels like a gallbladder attack (not in the front though, only up my back/across my ribs at the back) and it was stressing me out!! I had my gallbladder removed last year so im TOTALLY SURE it isn't that lol.

    I believe it's acid related as it is definitely related to a) certain foods (similar to gallbladder stuff so spice, fat, onion/garlic etc) and b) sitting or lying down too soon after eating.

    I haven't had any reflux, acid anything like that or even heartburn (in the front) however...gaviscon seemed to help slightly (except it made me vomit as i drank so much in last pg then when gallbladder was waiting to come out). I HAVE discovered deflatine works - completely - pain gone!! I take probably 4 a day, either just before or after food. I'm still watching what i eat etc but the deflatine is honestly like magic......

    I don't want to take it all pg so I'm seeing my gp soon to try and find a prescription alternative but in the meantime, give it a try x

    oh also if your gallbladder removal was relatively recent it may be stretching of scar tissue from surgery, though you wouldn't think food would bother that.
