So I had to have nephrostomy tubes put in. basically I have a tube going in my back into my kidney to drain the urine for me because there is a stone blocking my ureter and it is causing my kidney to back up and causing severe pain. I will have this the rest of my pregnancy (24 more weeks) the bag of urine will be strapped to my leg and have to be emptied a few times a day. once the pregnancy is over I will have surgery to remove the stone. but here is a picture

you poor thing!  i suffered from stones during ALL of my prenancies and it was hell.  the drs wanted to put a stent but i refused... i was never offered the tube.  may i ask if you get renal colic when you urinate in the bag?  i would get the worst renal colic with the stent which is why i declined it the last time.
