Thanks for posting your query.

Multiple calculi in gall bladder lumen are asymptomatic, then nothing to worry for them. They can be treated later on.

Main problem is dead foetus inside the mother's womb & if it remains for a longer period, mother may go in disseminated intravascular coagulopathy that is almost irreversible.

If liver function test, renal function test & (main thing is coagulation profile) are normal then she can be operated or induced for delivery.

I hope your query has been answered. Please let me know if you have more concerns.
