I am due august 27th, 2012.. I am now 25 weeks pregnant. When i was 24 weeks pregnant they found several kidney stones in my right kidney, i have swelling and infection.. it was terrible.. Well 2 days after being in the hositpal they placed a stent in.. that has been the worse pain ever so far.. peeing non stop, always hurting.. its a roller coaster.. My little man has been a trooper during all of this.. he kicks and moves all the time, his heart beat is always 150s and up.. Well i went back to the doc monday and they told me that in 4 weeks i will have to have this done again,, and will have to have the stent replaced. Well i asked when can i take it out they said after he is here.. my only concern is when they do it again i will be 30 or 31 weeks pregnant and as much pain as it was, im scared it may cause contractions and him come early.. any advice or knowledge basically anything at all.. would help so much!!!

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I can't imagine the pain, and I'm sorry you have to go through this. I was inpatient in the high risk unit at our local hospital during the last 4 weeks of my pregnancy ( I had a planned c-sect at 32 weeks due to my twins' condition) and had to be monitored and do various tests frequently, and there were a few times they said I was having contractions. They told me to drink lots of water and pee frequently, and then they would stop. But like Chantel said, 30 or 31 weeks (even though you wouldn't choose to have him that early) is not terrible. Good luck!

Hi there! Sorry to hear about all of this drama. You can actually cause contractions by stressing yourself out, this I think you know. I know you are worried, but take it from me - the mom of a 25 weeker and a 33 weeker, once you make it past 28 weeks, your babies' chances are extermely good. Unfortunately, I can't help you avoid the pain of a stent, but know that you are doing it for your health and your baby's health.
Best of luck to you!
