In my 2nd full pregnancy, I had severe morning sickness in the first trimester (hardly any food or liquids held down and lost 10 lbs), but thankfully, it resolved itself. In my 3rd trimester, I developed cholestasis. I watched my fat intake, had weekly non-stress tests and was induced at 38 weeks. I had a fairly healthy 8 # 4 oz boy by VBAC in March. A month after delivery (April), I had problems with abdominal pain and ended up with my gallbladder removed in June (my husband is a teacher). Now my baby is 18 months old.
If I were to be pregnant again, would I have to worry about cholestasis or hyperemesis gravidarum at all or is it still a possibility for me?
I'm not sure about that, but I don't have a gallbladder, and my first pregnancy had no cholestasis or hyperemesis gravidarum. My second pregnancy, I was extremely morning sick until month 5 and had to take medication for it, but I don't think it had anything to do with me not having a gallbladder, or it would have happened the first time...
