I had the scare of my life yesterday. I woke up about 6am and was in alot of pain in my lower back and it wrapped around my left side into my groin. It was getting more and more intense and I know my hubby would be home from work very soon, so I called my DR. He wanted to see me as soon as my hubby got home. By time hubs walked in the door, I was doubled over and could barely talk. He called the Dr. again and I was sent straight to the hospital to labor and delivery. The 1/2 ride there was torture. I couldn't sit anymore so I got on my knees and leaned over the back of the seat. I thought for sure I was in labor (I'm only 24 weeks). Got to hospital and Dr. met us there. Did some tests and surprise, no labor but kidney stones. I have to say, that was the most painful thing I have EVER gone through to this day. I thrashed in pain and couldn't even talk until they got and IV started and gave me comfort meds. I finally passed a stone yesterday early afternoon and then a few more smaller ones followed. Then it was instant relief. Good news is my little lady did great through the whole thing. She bounced around all day yesterday and her heart rate was perfect! Whew...what a day for me though. My nurse said that kidney stones are very common in pregnant women and that she's had women in there before with them who have already had children and she said those women told her that kidney stones are worse than childbirth. At least I know now what I can handle!!! I am home now and feel TONS better.
