36 weeks and a kidney stone?!

Anyone else have a kidney stone while pregnant?! What did they do for you or could do for you? They gave me narco to deal with the pain at home but that hasn't even touched the pain! This *****!

I'm 29 weeks and got a kidney stone at 27 weeks! The pain in my back was way worse than labor I cried for a week everyday until they decided to put a urethral Stent in. I will have it in until delivery but the back/side pain is gone!  Thank god I was so miserable and didn't go anywhere besides my bedroom to the living room!  Stent was very uncomfortable for like the first 5 days and burned when I pee but now I just feel a little pressure when I have to go but it's way better than that pain!  Omg!!!

They wouldn't even give me anything for pain and i was crying at the doctors office! Then I get the Stent in and they give me vicodine for the pain but it makes me light headed and sick but I don't need it anymore thank god but kidney stones are no joke:/

I'm 37+4 and I have kidney stones again.. First time I was 28weeks... The first time I had a kidney infection with it and it was throwing me into preterm labour, they kept me over night giving me antibiotics and iv fluids... I had over 8bags.. And I had pain meds! Then I was sent home with my antibiotics and pain meds.. This time I was given muscle relaxers, and two bags of fluids. And sent on my way home they are watching me and the baby I'm still in pain but I have increase my intake in water and started drinking more cranberry juice. It seems to be taking some of the edge off!

I had them around 20weeks they didn't do anything for me beside fluid ivs because I was dehydrated. I was lucky and passed them fairly quick. Hope yours pass soon. I was told that cranberry juice helps

The pain was way to horrible for me to try to pass them on my own, they wouldn't give me any pain meds

They gave me meds but they didn't touch the pain. So basically just sounds like I'm going to have to pass this SOB all on my own :-( I hope its true what they say..... kidney stones are worse than labor. If that's the case labor will be a breeze!! Thanks ladies for your inputs!! :-)

Yes it definitely is worse than labor!! I couldn't believe the pain I was in I knew something was wrong the first time I felt the pain! Good luck and hope it passes soon!!!!
