Abdomen Woes
**Warning - grossness ahead**
So, it's thought that I might have a kidney stone. Which apparently is somewhat common in pregnancy. Saturday found me doubled over in pain and just miserable. I go all the way to the closest walk-in and they're closed - (after calling and checking on their hours - apparently people don't get as sick in the summer) so I call another which was luckily open on Sunday. They perfunctorily diagnose a kidney stone and tell me to follow up with my OB. I do. They say to come right in to get a sono. So I got a sneak peak at Baby Jordan who was basically doing the watusi in there. Then see the doctor again today at my regular appointment who refers me to a urologist. So off I will be going there.

However. Last night I had BLINDING gas pain, on top of the kidney pain. I thought my insides were going to explode. I was absolutely WRITHING in pain.

So I'm guessing my insides in the neighborhood of my abdomen are just not happy right now.

:-( :-( :-( I hated being pregnant. I thought L&D was WAY easier than the whole pregnancy thing. But that would be why I only have two kids...

OMG.....I don't think you need or want any insight on labor pains just yet...I've never had labor pains but I have passed a kidney stone...and it was the worst pain I've ever had....I feel for you girlie.

OMG. Without a doubt - HORRIBLE.

Here's to hoping you fart more than a dump truck worth of gas and pass that stone (or whatever it is)soon and with as little pain as possible.

Jaysus. Bad mojo, sister.

Here's to hoping they diagnose and treat you asap.

Looking on the bright side:
You got to see that kid cutting a rug for 'free!'

Jill - I'm actually loving being pregnant - this has really been the only wrinkle yet. I've be

Jerrster - you get points for at least trying to commiserate!

Buddha - It was awful. I was seriously writhing. I feel much better though and haven't even taken tylenol since 4am yesterday, so I'm guessing I might have passed it. But it's nice as to how responsive they've been to me.

Oh man, that sounds just horrible. I really hope you get some relief soon, it doesn't seem fair to have pain on top of pain.

Oh my goodness, that sounds absolutely terrible. I hope the urologist is able to help you blast the kidney stone.
