kidney stones

In the hospital @ 34 weeks 5 days with a kidney stone. Wow! This tiny thing sure hurts a heck of a lot. Anyone else have to suffer through a kidney stone in pregnancy? I find out tomorrow if I need a surgery or not.

I feel for you dear! I before pregnancy is prone to kidney stones...which puts me s high risk! I know kidney stones are painful enough but to add pregnancy on top of it...its so much worse! I do hope the best for you and a fast recovery!

Thanks ladies. Trying hard to flush it out but after midnight I have to stop food and beverage intake as they plan to do surgery in the AM.

I've had stones with all three of my pregnancies but the worst was with my first. Ironically I had to have surgery at 34wks to remove several stones.

The good news is, once you get to labor it will be a breeze compared to stones. And I've had three low or no medicated births....I'd take labor over stones any day.

Good luck hoping they pass quickly for you!

Either the pain meds are doing wonders or it passed. Hard to say at this point due to 3 different meds. I have experienced labor for 36+ hours with my first and then an emergency c-section. Since have had 2 more planned sections. I will also have a planned with this baby so labor and I are no longer paired up. This pain somehow makes up for the no labor with 3 out of 4!!

Aww hopefully it has passed, I had that with my first and it was definitely worse than labour!

I had a bout with stones 2 years ago, but not while pregnant...it was the worst pain I've ever experienced!!!! I've had 3 c-sections and that wasn't even close to how painful those silly little stones were...feeling for you hun...I honestly never even knew kidney stones were something u had a higher chance of getting while pregnant until this pregnancy...I've been a little nervous worrying abt getting them this time around...only 8 wks, 5dys left until my c-section, so hopefully they stay away..goodluck hun..:-)

Update: pain came back in full force. Ended up staying in the hospital wed- currently (will get relased soon) had a laser surgery to break up a very large stone. There is no way flushing it out would have worked so overall okay with the surgery outcome. Feeling okay. Still waiting for the spinal to wear off a bit in my feet.
