Kidney Stone!
Thu, 08-23-2012 - 12:44pm

This morning when I woke up and went to the bathroom I had this sudden, excrutiating pain in my right side. DH was about to leave for work, found me and rushed me to the ER. Turns out I have a kidney stone, luckily it appears small enough to pass without needing to break it up.

Oh my word, I cannot describe the pain. The doctor offered me something that is "relativley safe" for baby, but I haven't filled the script and I don't think that I will.

The good news is it meant a u/s, and I did get to see the baby again. S/he is doing great. My blood pressure was through the roof, but the pain and fear for baby explains that. DH acted quickly and is taking very good care of me today, but he doesn't do well seeing me in pain, he had tears in his eyes.

Has anyone else had a kidney stone? How long did it take yours to pass?
