kidney stones during pregnancy....

I am 23 weeks with my second child.I kept hurting very bad in my back and lowerstomach but thought it was just ligaments stretching. Come to find out it is kidney stones. I have been in the hospital for 4 days and only passed 1. They sent me home yesterday and told me I still have more to pass.They wanted to put in a stent but told me that would probably be more painful to me.Has anyone ever had kidney stones while being pregnant, and what about the stent? Did i make a good decision refusing it or should i get it?

  • Oh boy I feel your pain momma. I had kidney and gall stones. I was about 5 months. Painful and no fun at all. They never offered a stint and i think I may of tried it lol. It finally just quit hurting. The gall stones.......I had to be very careful what I ate.
