i have had this pain in my back since june and it was just in my right lower back, the doc said it was a possible kidney stone....so she gave me a week to pass it and i didnt pass a stone! sometime passes and we gave up on the idea that it was a stone. eventually the pain has spread up the whole entire right side of my back, almost to my armpit. now the pain is also going under my right breast (like in the bra line) and its like swollen and painful! i mention it at every appt but the last couple of appts i have had have been with mid wives who cant subscribe the meds my doc was...i feel like im not being taken seriously, or maybe im just overly worried! PLEASE HELP!

Maybe you need more time to pass it?? Are you drinking enough water? I saw this:
"When large kidney stones develop, they're accompanied by extreme pain. Some people equate the level of pain to being worse than childbirth or heart attacks. The pain generally starts just below your ribs on your back, and travels around the side into the pelvis and groin area."

"As you can probably tell, having kidney stones while pregnant can be a horrible experience that lasts for months. You might be able to help prevent the formation of kidney stones while you're pregnant by drinking plenty of extra water, and avoiding high oxalate foods such as nuts, dark leafy green vegetables, berries and chocolate.
Drinking pure lemon juice freshly squeezed or from concentrate has been known to help dissolve kidney stones too. Keep in mind that pre-made lemonade drinks might not do the job though. You need to use actual lemon juice, about 2 ounces or half a lemon, every day to help prevent the stones from forming. You can add the lemon juice to your tea or water each morning too. If you have stones already, try drinking the lemon juice about once each hour until the pain is gone."
