pregnancy causing kidney stones

So, this is my 4th pregnancy but my first time dealing with kidney stones presumably caused by the pregnancy.  Has anyone else had this unfortunate experience and how did you get through?  I'm on my second round of stones. I just had surgery to remove a 6 mm stone 3 weeks ago and now I have one in the opposite side.  I'm only 14 weeks so I have a ways to go yet.

Pregnancy has given me gallstones. I've had to take morphine. I have to really limit my diet to avoid attacks. I don't know if a change in diet might prevent kidney stones?

I just recently learned about gallstones bring an issue for a lot of pregnant woman. I've never had those and hopefully never do. I've got my hands full already! Lol. They've not said anything to me about diet changes. My ON actually just said to me "Well, you were the one who wanted the pregnancy." When I expressed disappointment and frustration over this new stone. It's just really been a rough pregnancy so far =/
