kidney stones at 35 weeks

I ended up at the hospital a few nights ago as I was in so much pain. They think it was a kidney stone which I have a history off. But I am back in agony again today. Thinking i may have to go back. Has anyone ever had kidney stonea while pregnant ? Wondering if they will do my csection earlier than planned because of them I feel that I am most likely going to have to stop working now too because im in ao much pain fron it.

Yup it is officially kidney stones. I was in the er again yesterday and they found a few stonea in my kidney that need to be blasted but they cant do it til after baby is born. Im in so much pain it is unbearable.  This is way more paib than actually giving birth.

I'm 25 weeks and have history of kidney stones prior to pregnancy. I currently have them, yes plural. They're awful and no one should experience them, especially during pregnancy. I'm sure you're on flomax and an antibiotic? Also, the only thing that seems to remotely help are hot baths. My doctor informed me that if we can make it through this, labors a breeze. I'm so so sorry you're going through this :(

My last pregnancy I had stones twice.  I don't wish that pain on anyone!  Im so sorry. Warm baths were all that helped.

I've had kidney stones as well. By far they are worse than labor. I'm so sorry you're going through this while pregnant.

Mine got so bad they hospitalized me and put me on iv diladid. After a week they let me go home on pain meds. It was bad I get them with every pregnancy abd the Dr said I could very well lose my kidneys. Both of my kidneys fill up with stones and very large ones while I am pregnant. I even had to have surgery and a renal stint places to keep my kidneys drained while I was pregnant. I took pain meds and hot hot showers to ease the pain, heating pad work ok too.
