kidney stones!!! :(

I went to my doctor right away today because i was having cramping in my back and i couldnt go to the bathroom. i walk in and my doctor told me i might be in LABOR!? im only 25 weeks and i immediately broke down.. i got a transvaginal ultrasound and she checked my cervix n said its a litttle short but i wasnt in labor thank GOD. She said i have kidbey stones that i have to let pass and ive never been in such pain.. i was throwing up pisssing my pants and experiencing the kidney stones all at once. she gave me painkillers and im waiting for them to pass.. has anyone else had an experience with being preg with kidney stones??

I my self haven't. But they are extremely common in pregnancy. I think like soda and things like that are one cause of them. So steer clear of that. I'm sorry momma:/

With my first pregnancy i had kidney surgery at 25weeks cuz of severe stones. Most painful experience of my life. My c section felt better. Lol. Im now 22weeks with my second and i have already passed two stones so far. I hope Im done. I can't handle anymore stones.

With my last pregnancy i had such bad kidney stones that they were blocking my ureter (the tube going from your kidney to your bladder) which caused all the urine on my left side to be stuck in my kidney i got really bad hydronephrosis (excessive swelling of the kidney) and had to have a stent placed 4 times while pregnant to let the urine flow correctly again! I was in horrible horrible pain the entire rest of my pregnancy and a few weeks after my son was born they did another surgery to remove the stent well when they did they found that my entire kidney was nothing but stones and the whole length of the stent from one side to the other was stone after stone after stone! They think my prenatal vitamins were doing it to me but didn't tell me that until after i delivered i really hope your experience its nothing like mine cuz it was terrible i couldn't move without being in horrible pain!
