kidney stones

So I went to the ER yesterday for severe pain in my back that wrapped around front.. I was nauseous and couldn't eat. Come to find out I have two kidney stones one that is in the process of passing and one that is still in my kidney.. I am 27 weeks ... Has anybody else had kidney stones during their pregnancy? I'm honestly so miserable and I can't eat and I'm worried about my baby . Any suggestions ?

Drink as much water as you can! You need to get them out as soon as possible. Mine are stuck because my baby is now too big for them to move past, so now I'm at risk for early induction or c-section. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. Keep in contact with your doctor, and let them know if you get in too much pain. They can do stents sometimes to help.

It is very hard to function! I mostly just want to sleep. I have still been working, though. My OB said walking might help. I know for me it does tend to hurt if I'm sitting for long periods of time. I have reached the point where the pain meds don't cover up the pain, and they just give me really bad heartburn and dizziness. I'm not much of a pill taker anyway, but it seems better than nothing. Hang in there, momma.
