What are gallstones during pregnancy?

Gallstones are hard, crystalline masses that form cholesterol, calcium salts, or bilirubin. Most gallstones are small and cause no problems, but some grow large enough to obstruct one of the ducts that carries a substance called bile between the gallbladder, liver, and intestine. Because of hormonal factors and changes in the speed bile flow, pregnancy, aging, and obesity all encourage the formation and growth of gallstones.
