Hi there and welcome.  I would definitely consult with your ob/gyn about the gall stones.  During pregnancy, these do tend to get worse and as your body is already dealing with a lot during pregnancy, you don't want that on top of it.    The gall stones get worse due to extra estrogen.  Gall stones left untreated can cause your gallbladder to become infected and can even rupture.  So, I'd talk to your doctor about this BEFORE trying again.  Even if you go to your primary care doctor, they should have some advice for you.  good luck
