Special treat for today? Kidney stones.
Blindingly painful can’t speak walk or breathe during an attack kidney stones.
I had small ones right after the cerclage, but I can’t remember if I complained about them then. This time though. Holy shit they hurt.
But as we learned in the hospital, nifedipine is an “off-brand” treatment for stones as well as PTL so I’m all set.
And yes I’m flipping hydrated. My urine is clear.
I got an extra trans-vag and poke in the cervix though while they figured out wtf was going on. Still 2.8cm but we have a very small funnel. The doc said she wouldn’t consider that a progression to worry about. This doc we haven’t seen in this pregnancy but she remembers us from Natan and was very kind. She said she’d be shocked if we made it to term but thinks 34 weeks is possible yet. She was glad Dr. K had me on nifedipine.
Because I’m in so much pain today it’s hard to express how happy this all made me. Yay for small doses of nifedipine. Considering I haven’t had a real contraction since Thursday now, my non-professional opinion is that it is indeed working.
