So I started passing a kidney stone yesterday.  My 44th to be exact!!  I tend to pass them more frequently when pregnant.  However, this one is about to shut down my right kidney.  its all swollen and very little urine is passing thru.  I am in pain, vomitting, and nauseaus.  I ended up staying in the hospital last night and saw the urologist this morning.  I have 3 options, going in for surgery to remove the stone or stones, going in for surgery and having a permanent stent put in for the whole pregnancy, and last try to pass it on my own.  The surgeries require an mri and anethesia which I am not comfortable doing with the baby.  So I am trying to pass it on my own.  But if it does get blocked, I'm going in for surgery :smileysad:

The good news!!!!  I got to see the baby again!!  The baby was so active, clapping it's hands, and pushing off my uterus.  I knew I had felt this baby move inside of me.  The baby was having a good time kicking off my uterus sliding back and forth lol.  But the biggest news of all is I found out the sex of my baby!!!  We are announcing to our parents on Sunday.  I am so excited for a healthy baby!!!!
