pregnancy and gallbladder problems?

Anyways now that you're filled in.
I'm 5 months now, actually 21 weeks. I've been having and have had insane pains in my stomach / abdomen. The doctor swears they are growing pains but these are typically doubling over, omg i'm doing to die pains. These pains have been happening since I was 5 weeks. The more I tell people about it the more I'm convinced its gallbladder issues. I was wondering if anyone had experienced these issues in or out of pregnancy.
EDIT :: I did have a small cyst in the begining of my pregnancy but the doctor says its gone now. Before when the pains were in my lower abdomen / stomach I thought the doctor was crazy because growing pains could not be these severe so randomly so strong. Now I'm having pains higher up like above my belly button below my boobs.

I suffer from indigestion quite regulary but that's because baby is squashing my insides and not allowing me to digest food properly.

Do you get pain that shoots up through your shoulder blade like you're being pierced with a spear? Pain through the shoulder is supposedly a sign of a gall bladder attack. Also, gall stones are formations of cholesterol. Do you have a family history of high cholesterol? I would mention this pain to your doctor. They can check for gall stones via an ultrasound (which is what they did for me).

I waited 16 months for the op and had around 15 attacks while waiting.
