Holy cow, I am growing weary of the unexpected...It turns out that all of the cramping and light bleeding weeks ago was not from the babies after all...well not directly:) I have had Kidney stones for the last 3 1/2 weeks that have caused major discomfort that I mistakenly associated to the uterus. This past wednesday, during class, I felt extremely faint and sick. I left class and headed to the E.R. I told them I had kidney pain and was miserable and they believed me. They did a urine test and found alot of red blood cells and they followed up with an ultra-sound of the kidney and bladder...They saw two stones in the kidney and believed there was a large stone in the ureter. The docs were unsure as to how to proceed because I am so newly pregnant. They put me on fluids overnight and decided to do surgery after a while. The procedure revealed a large stone that had to be laser blasted and removed from the tube. All I can say is ouch!!! OUch, ouch, ouch! A stent was placed and I am on pain meds to help aleviate the bladder apsms and pain in the Kidney.
The babies were monitored throughout and so far they are unscathed by the whole thing. I have another ultra sound tomorrow, if I can make it. Stones may be small but thyey are mighty! I feel worse now than after delivery. I am crossing my fingers that the stent will be removed and the other stones will pass...I'll let you all know what I find out tomorrow...These sweeties are now 9 weeks. Times is flying and in no time they'll be flying...on a plane...Home:)
