Kidney Stones

Anybody else have them? I'm 34 weeks, and they feel much worse while pregnant than while not. The pain meds make me dizzy and nauseous, but I still am in a lot of pain. How do you cope? The doctor said I could go back in the hospital until they pass and/or have a stent put in, but I'd rather not....

I've had them 4 times this pregnancy. The first one I had removed after being in total hell for my entire first trimester. All day morning sickness on top on being in constant pain and needing pain meds just wasn't working. I had a 6mm stone removed and was so relieved just to get another in the opposite kidney 3 weeks later. Thank God that one passed on it's own after 2 weeks of constant pain. The only thing that got me through was a high pain tolerence,a heating pad, warm baths, and pain meds. I hope they pass soon
