Any moms have experience with kidney stones while pregnant.    Were you induced early or allowed to go as normal??

I have been dealing with kidney stones since i was 14 weeks and am now 33 weeks but and have been in and out of the hospital..my doctor hasnt mentioned going early but i kinda wish i would so i dont have to be in pain anymore.

I'm being induced early due to complications and damage done by the stones. I'm being induced at 37 weeks so it's not too early.

With my son i had them from around 7 months up until the end. I was far enough in that i was given narcs for pain in a low dose and pretty much stayed home till i had a c section at 39 weeks. So painful i know i had to stay at l and d a couple days for them to manage my pain via iv till i passed the big stone and was discharged with many small ones. Try a shot of lemon juice and olive oil....it basically lubes your kidneys and ureters to help pass. I have dealt with tons of stones even outside pregnancy, but its worse being pregnant bc you cant have surgery to have stents or litho.....flush em with lots of fluids good luck:(

Allowed to go as normal.  I was hospitalized and put on iv pain meds for weeks at a time and with one child they did surgery to place a stint while pregnant. I have had them with 3 previous and then this one I have already had pain and passed one stone.

I was on high doses of Percocet every 4 hrs at home if the pain did not ease enough they put me on diloid or morphine.. they start early in pregnancy and go till after baby is born. I was told to get a tubal after my last because the Dr said another baby would make me lose my kidneys. During my last pregnancy I showed signs my kidneys were starting to give out... he wants me to take antibiotics through out this entire pregnancy but I declined due to long term use side effects.

I passed one the drs said was unpassable... it was bigger than a pencil eraser and they said they never seen or heard of anyone passing one that big... they wanted to do surgery but I told them I could do it.... felt like I was in labor.. it's as bad as having a baby when they get that bad.
