kidney stone and pregnant

My wife has kidney stone about 3 years now. We know that its kidney stone because her doctor did a x ray and urine test positive as a kidney stone. Once in a while she fells pain and we just found out she is pregnant. I want to know how will the stone affect her and the pregnancy?

What treatment was done previously? Most kidney stones pass out of the body without any intervention.  However, when stones are big and cause lasting symptoms or other complications, management is different. This will require medical treatment or possible surgery. Talk to her doctor about her pregnancy and have her evaluated further for proper management. I also recommend that she rest and drink plenty of fluids.

Take care and keep us posted.
