Kidney issues...

Have any of you had issues with your kidneys while being pregnant?  I have pretty sensitive kidneys and have had issues with them since I was younger.  Does it feel different when you are pregnant than when you aren't?  I am 24 weeks and am having terrible back pain in my lower back and it kind of wraps around.  It hurts more on the right than on the left and I am starting to wonder if it isn't something wrong with my kidneys like an infection or something because nothing is helping it.

With my son I went seriously close to kidney and liver failure.  My body was shutting down.  It did feel like I had a HORRIBLE kidney infection.  My urine got thick and dark.  Almost like burnt orange colored syrup.  I had pre-eclampsia that had been missed for months.  Talk to your doctor ASAP.  Let him know your concerns- he needs to be testing you to see what is going on.  I was having seizures and it was not caught.

I had that same kind of thing going on also. At first they thought it was a UTI but then they found out it was BV.

My urine isn't dark or anything and I haven't had a kidney infection since I was 17, so I don't know if I just have a really bad back ache or if it has something to do with my kidneys.  I have an appt with my OB tomorrow, so I will talk to him about it then.
