kidney stones, natural remedies?

Hello, im 35 and 17 weeks pregnant. I spent the last two nights in the hospital bc I'm passing a kidney stone and it had set up infection. After givin iv fluids and antibiotics I am now home again. They're wanting to see if I can pass the stone on my own. I have put on 7 pounds of fluid. Im a little worried about the meds they have me to flush it out. Im curious if there are any known natural remedies that are safe to flush out a stone while pregnant. This is very painful and I'm hoping will be over soon.

Just drink lots of fluids...  I have been through tons of pregnancy kidney stones and that is all you can do.. mine got bad enough I almost lost my kidneys. And after my last baby was born I got septic and was hard headed and waited out going to the hospital being away from my new baby I almost did not make it... water is your best friend... drink drink drink... Good luck hun.... I hope you pass it...

With my last stone I got the toxic build up also and was so sick. Im really hoping that doesn't happen now. Im so sorry you also had to go through this, it's horrible. Thank you for the good luck wishes, I really appreciate it.

I was also in the hospital for kidney stones in July I just now passed mine two days ago I thought I was getting a uti cause I always felt like I had to pee but I didn't so I took a azo tablet and the next day I peed it out.. And it didn't hurt it just burned for a sec
