work_while_bent tells us more.
Yes, my wife made sure to tell me that about a dozen times.

@30 Come tell me that when you piss one out. Then I'll beleive you. I'm into pain and shit but that hurts. your little man parts arnt ment to have a rock even the size of a grain of sand bouncing it's way out of you. and for most people it's bigger about the third of a small bead on a necklace.
I've had a kidney stone, and my urologist told me that for almost everyone the pain stops when it gets to your bladder. And if not, your urethra is about twice the diameter of your ureter, so if your stone can travel down your ureter, it will travel much easier down your urethra.
As a woman this is my worst nightmare too! Either male or female, a tiny spiked rock coming out of the tiny holed urethra sounds horrible and excruciating! I think the only thing to try and prevent kidney stones is drinking lots of water, which I thankfully do.
80, Ugh, sounds horrible! It sucks they can't figure out why you get them. I hope you never have one again! I must say though, (and maybe I'm ignorant) but the idea of cutting them out seems better to me than it slowly dragging and cutting through your body. Would you prefer the surgery or passing it?
Kidney stones *suck*. I've had 2, one per kidney, and it's awful. I've had a kid since then, and I'd say the kidney stone actually hurts worse than the beginning contractions. Wouldn't know about past that, cuz I got an epidural, but I was given morphine shots for my 2nd and worst stone.
Everyone feels pain differently. For some, childbirth is a breeze and others it is the most excruciating pain ever felt. Those same people that had horrible pain in birth might find kidney stones easy and so on. This argument is pointless because it is based on personal experience rather than actual science/facts etc
Kidney stones also vary in size and how quickly they pass. Much like babies I guess. Sometimes labour only lasts a couple of hours or so, other women can be in labour for even days (although I think medical intervention stops that being as common now). Best bet is probably to avoid both.
Yeah, everyone I've talked to who's been through both said kidney stones were worse, too. I don't have any kids, but I have had kidney stones on four separate occasions and they are the most painful thing I've ever experienced, hands down. I wouldn't wish them on anyone. (Last time, I also got a kidney infection with the stones and felt like I was going to die.)
