I'm 36 weeks pregnant (will make 37 weeks Sunday) and I have been in the hospital twice and that I have mild hydronephrosis - basically kidney swelling/fluid around kidney/urine backing up into kidney due to baby blocking tube that attaches bladder & kidney. I'm in miserable pain..nothing helps except Narco and I hate taking it, but I really have no choice when these "attacks" happen as I like to call it. I was just wondering what is standard protocol for this? Do they sometimes induce you early due to this or is this something that they just make you deal with until you deliver? I don't mean to sound selfish at all, but...this pain is just unbearable. I can't find much info about this on the internet which is weird since I've been told that it's kinda common in pregnancy!
