Well last week, we had a scare. I woke up and was in pain, but nothing I couldn’t deal with or so I thought. About an hour after I woke, I am laying on the floor of the shower thinking I am going to die. I get my husband to come home to drive me to the ER. He’s stressing driving me because apparently I look like I am in labor. After 2 hours in the ER, diagnosis is kidney stones. They gave me medicine for the pain and the nausea and sent me on my way. Um ok, well that doesn’t help. How do I stop them or prevent them? This has lead me to search the internet for answers. Lots of water (OK, that’s a given), no soda or lunchmeat (my midwife said so) but what else?
Things that are bad for you:
Chocolate and peanut butter…
Lots of calcium including veggies that have lots of it
Citrus (This is going to be a killer, I’m craving OJ) but not lemonade? Mayo Clinic is ok with it.
So time to overhaul my diet, yay. Just what every pregnant woman wants to do once they find foods they like to eat.
