My kidney isn't draining properly

I had an ultrasound done on my kidneys due to some issues I'd been having (blood in urine, belly pain, UTI symptoms but no infection found in my urine.) They found that my right kidney is holding some fluid and not draining properly. I'm seeing a urologist tomorrow. Anyone else have experience with this? I'm 25 weeks, the issues started at 21 weeks.

I had some severe pain and they did an ultrasound on my kidney and found it to be partially blocked as well. Mine ended up being kidney stones. It took me a few weeks before I finally stopped hurting and it passed. Sorry you are dealing with this. Good luck!

Do you have a slight fever at all? Any flank or groin or lower back pain? Very well could be kidney stones...

I had the symptoms I mentioned before--after the blood in my urine my belly hurt for several days and I was stuck on bed rest. It went away though. Same with the symptoms that felt like a UTI--it just went away. Since then I've had some minor pain in my urethra--like the start of a UTI, but it hasn't progressed. They didn't see any stones but I guess they could be really small and not be able to be seen on an ultrasound. I'm just worried about kidney damage or having to deliver early.

Yes I have this. It's called hydronephrosis. It was just on my right kidney too. Nothing I do for it during pregnancy, it is preg induced and will resolve when baby is born. Hopefully u will be like me and symptoms at least give u a break. Seems like I get a really bad flare up of the symptoms every few weeks but the rest of time it is not as intense. Good luck.

Well my OB is concerned because it usually doesn't happen this early in pregnancy, plus I had all those awful symptoms.

Well I saw the urologist today. I won't have to go back until after delivery unless symptoms return. He wants to make sure my kidney functions normally again.
