Finally, an answer.... Kindey stones...

After weeks of pain and all sorts of symptoms I have learned I have kidney stones... I'm not thrilled about it but glad to know what has been going on.. There isn't much the dr can do for me so I just have to tough it out. Any one else go through this when they were pregnant?

Yep. I'm 19 weeks and I've had kidney stones twice since being pregnant. One was 6mm and didn't pass for over 2 months and needed to be removed surgically and the other was in the opposite kidney and passed on it's own after about 60oz of water a day for 2 weeks. I'm very thankful it's over and I hope to never experience them again, but that isn't very likely.  Once you've had kidney stones you have a 50% chance of getting more within 5 years. Good luck passing them. I hope it happens fast for you. Worst experience of my life.

I know exactly what you're going through. I had kidney stones about a month ago, I was 34 weeks. It was the most horrible thing I have ever experienced! My dr gave me some medicine to help pass them because one was stuck because it was so large. I'm not looking forward to ever having them again, but it will probably happen. I found the pain to be worse than childbirth. Good luck.

I'm 17w3d twins and have had a 10mm stone before my pregnancy. My kidney hurts sometimes, but it's not that bad thank god. Unfortunately 10mm is too big to pass on it's own, so I have to get surgery after I have my babies.

The one i have passed they said was borderline whether it would pass on its own. I go in for an ultrasound to see if i have more then the one I already passed.. I hope not, but I have still been in pain.. so time will tell. Thank you for sharing your experiences. It's definitely not fun...
