Consult with: a urologist. Although these are not particularly large stones, they probably will not pass own their own.

A 35-year-old member asked:

Does a lower back ache mean I am in labor?

No: It could especially if it is crampy and comes and goes every few minutes. However, it could be due to additional strain in your low back muscles due to your expanding belly and less postural support from your stomach (rectus) muscles. It could also be pain in your pelvis (si joints) from the hip bones "moving" to create more room for your baby to come out. If uncertain see your healthcare provider.

Yes: Bladder infections in pregnancy are more likely to progress to kidney infections than normal. Kidney infections may also cause preterm delivery, pneumonia or bacteria in the bloodstream. If you have a bladder infection and develop fever, pain going into your back or symptoms like the flu, you need to let your doctor know immediately.

You have sciatica.: Sorry you are suffering from this...There are several common causes of sciatica including irritation of the spinal nerves from a herniated disk. If your pain does not get better, if numbness affects the crotch, or if you have bowel or bladder difficulty then you need a surgical evaluation, otherwise your primary care provider can take care of getting the sciatica to cool down.
