That is a good question. From what I understand, hydronephrosis is a kidney blockage due to a blocked or narrow ureter (pee tube). Unfortunately, there is no cut and dry answer. Some people would say yes that they feel pain. I would think that once the nervous system is fully developed that it is quite possible that the baby does. Around week 18 is when the babies nervous system is developed enough for movement and it just tends to get stronger from there (baby movement that is). However, baby is so well cushioned that it is unlikely to feel pain from the outside. I would assume that your doctor is keeping a close eye on you. Be sure to keep up with your kick counts. If there is any sign that you have decreased activity, I would contact your OB. I would also request that they monitor the baby at each of your OB appointments for fetal distress. Any sign of fetal distress and you may consider at the OB's recommendation or for the well-being of baby to induce labor or continue to a c-section that is if you are far enough along that it will not hurt baby even more.
