JEREMY BROOKS COVIN IS HERE!!

HE WEIGHED 7 LBS 11OZS AND HAS A HEAD FULL OF BROWN HAIR. I WISH I HAD PICTURES TO POST,BUT UNFORTUNATELY I HAVE NOT GOTTEN TO MEET HIM YET. I WOKE UP THIS MORNING WITH PAIN AGAIN AND THOUGHT ANOTHER BLADDER INFECTION AND THEN THE BACK PAIN HIT. IT GOT REALLY BAD FAST, SO OFF TO THE DOCTOR I WENT AGAIN. I HAD A GOOD AMOUNT OF BLOOD IN MY URINE ALONG WITH WHITE BLOOD CELLS AND PROTEIN, AND I WAS DEHYDRATED. THE DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY SAID SHE BELIEVED I HAD KIDNEY STONES AND WANTED TO DO A CT SCAN TO CHECK ON THE SIZE AND LOCATION AND MAKE SURE I HAD NO BLOCKAGE IN MY URETERS. I REALLY GOT UPSET BECAUSE THE THOUGHT OF A CT SCAN AND PREGNANT JUST SCARED ME TO DEATH, BUT SHE SAID AT THIS POINT I NEEDED IT AND THE BABY WOULD NOT BE AFFECTED. I WAS ADMITTED AND THEY STARTED IV FLUIDS TO HELP RE-HYDRATED ME AND GAVE ME IV PAIN MEDS. THE CT SCAN SHOWED A LITTLE STONE IN THE LEFT KIDNEY,BUT MY PAIN IS ON THE RIGHT SIDE THAT SHOWED NOTHING. SHE BELIEVES IT IS A STONE THAT IS NOT MADE OF CALCIUM OR A CLUSTER OF SMALL STONES THAT IS NOT SHOWING UP,BUT CAUSING ALL THE PAIN. I HAVE NEVER HAD ANYTHING LIKE THIS, BUT IT IS THE MOST UNBEARABLE PAIN I HAVE EVER FELT IN MY LIFE. THE ONLY THING TO TREAT THIS IS TO MANAGE THE PAIN AND WAIT FOR THEM TO PASS. I HAD THE CHOICE TO STAY IN THE HOSPITAL FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT OR I COULD COME HOME ON PAIN MEDS AND OF COURSE I CHOSE TO COME HOME. I WOULD MUCH RATHER BE HERE WITH MY BABY BOYS THEN STUCK IN THE HOSPITAL. I AM FEELING BETTER RIGHT NOW AND HOPE THAT IN THE MORNING WHEN I WAKE UP THE PAIN WILL BE GONE. THEY SAY IT COMES AND GOES UNTIL THE STONES ARE GONE, SO PLEASE PRAY THAT THIS PAIN WILL GO AWAY AND I WILL FEEL BETTER. I AM NOT A SICKLY PERSON AND HATE FEELING LIKE THIS AND HATE HAVING TO HAVE THE PAIN MEDS TO EVEN SIT UP. I AM HOPING I FEEL BETTER AND CAN GO MEET MY NEW LITTLE NEPHEW TOMMORROW. MOMMY, DADDY, BIG BROTHER, AND BABY ARE ALL DOING GREAT! WESTON WAS ALITTLE SCARED OF HIM AT FIRST, BUT WARMED UP QUICKLY AND WANTED TO HOLD HIM ALL AFTERNOON! I AM SO HAPPY FOR THEM AND CANT WAIT TO MEET THE BEAUTIFUL BABY BOY!

P.S. I JUST SAW THAT JEFF ACTUALLY UPDATED THEIR BLOG,SO YOU CAN CHECK IT OUT FOR SOME PICTURES OF BROOKS!

Oh goodness! Kidney stones are no fun. I've had around 13 (i've really lost count) and about 5 or 6 during pregnancy! Push fluids and get some pain meds for home!
It'll all be over soon and you'll be holding that sweet little baby!!

Feel better soon! I know you must be miserable having kidney stones on top of being pregnant. Hopefully the stones will pass soon, just in time for little man to get here!

I know how you feel! I had kidney stones and it was worse than child birth and that is speaking a lot coming from me because I didn't have an easy labor. You will be in my prayers.
