Well DH and I were enjoying a relaxing weekend at the cabin when I started to feel some lower abdominal and lower right back pain. I didn't think much of it, but I called my midwife just to be sure and she said I should come in just to be safe. So here I am five hours later in he hospital!!! Turns out that I have kidney stones in my right kidney, which explains the pain. They hooked me up to the Fetal monitor to make sure baby was okay and she looked just fine - which is all I cared about! I've been in an increasing amount of pain since I got here, so it's good that I came in. They gave me an u/s and saw "multiple free floating stones" in my kidney... The tech was really nice and gave us a peek at the girl. :). She's still breech and her hands and feet are up by her face, so she's folded on half basically. She's so cute! She still has time to flip, but GEESH I wish she would do it soon!
Anyway, just thought I'd check in and let you all know the drama - I'll be fine, they are giving me some antibiotics and something to dilate my ureter so the stones will pass more easily. Fun fun. Looks like I'll be staying overnight so they can monitor me.
I'll keep you posted!
