Hi, i'm Brittany. When I was 6 mths prego i stared to have pain in my lower back and in my bladder.It turned out that within two weeks i had gotten two differnt kidney stones,but they should not have been big enough to cause that much pain. So after being in and out of the hospital at least once a week for a mth with contractions they had to keep stoping..they told me that they would have to put a tube in my back and kidney that would drain into a bag that i would have to walk around with for the rest of the preganacy...that was not at all fun everyone thinks a prego person is cute, not when they have to carry around their pee in a bag :( well after i had that tube in i stated to have pain again...so i went back to the doctor becuase i was contracting agian so they gave me the meds to stop the contractions again and they said that tube was cloged and the only way to fix it would be to take it out and replace it wuth a new one(simple to do since the hole was already there) NOT FOR ME...the tube was stuck this was only suppost to take 20mins at the most and it took 2 hours the doctor had already called over to get me into surgery but then he told me to hold my breath and hold the nurses hand(i was wake for all this) and the pulled and tuged..finally just as he was giving up the tube came out(worst pain in my life)...then they put in a new one...turned out that they first doc to put in the tube didnt tell me to inject saline into the tube twice a day to clean it...well so i went into the er agian cuz i was having more pain/contractions...they tried to stop it cuz i was only 36weeks along, but they couldnt the meds were making my heart rate go up so they told me that the were braking my water and that we were going to have this baby...I was in labor for about 24 hours...my doc made me get an epi so that it would numb the tube in my back so i couldt feel it while pushing..
My son was born January 16th at 7am on the dot!
He eas 6lbs 11oz and 19 inches long..i got to hold him for maybe 2 mins and then they took him to the NICU...I couldnt see him for 24hours cuz i had a fever...THat was the hardest part..my fiacne went in and held him,feed him,took pics with him, changed his first diaper..sorry to say but i was sooo upset at my fiance' that he was able to do all my sons first and i couldnt even touch him...My son had an infection(thats why he wanted out so badly)...I was discharged after 2 days and i got to have the tube removed(took 5mins this time:) ) my son had to say for five days in the NICU. now he is a very healthy almost 3mth old that is already 12lbs!!!
This is my story and even though I went had so much pain with the pregancy i cant wait to have another one(and yes i will most likly have to have the tube again when that happens,since there just isnt much room in my stomach area for a baby) But im ok with it cuz i love being a mother!
Note yes my son was early and yes he had an infection he was never on any danger...
Do you think its dumb the i would put myself though that again??
