MandG2010:I've heard from women that have babies that kidney stones are worse than labor.
For me, no. It's the worst pain I've ever felt...and I've broken lots of bones before. And yet, somehow you forget about the pain just enough to do it again.
Nope. 30+ hours of natural labor wins my vote. I thought my extremely painful miscarriage would prepare me, but...no. I would imagine that being burned alive or eaten alive by a pack of wolves would be more painful.
2nd place: Naturally miscarrying at 7 weeks
3rd place: Breaking my hand when I was 13
Always Sunny's back bitches!
pinkiemo:In the grand scheme of things, labor is so short and in some ways feels "productive" so I'm not too concerned about doing it again.
This is true. The two redeeming qualities of labor are that you know it will end and you'll get a prize. :)
FTM here, but I did ask that question around not so long ago and I was told by my mother that even being cut open on the spot for an emergency surgery before meds had any effect on her did not match being in labor for 60 hours and pushing for 36 hours.
My best friend said that contractions were fairly similar to having kidney stone pain, except the stone did not weigh 9.5 lbs and tear her up when it passed.

Pooping for the first time after labor. Just shoot me if I have to go through that again.
Um, yes. Postpartum recovery, as well as breastfeeding with Raynauds of the Nipple. And, yes, it does exist and I was lucky enough to have had it with #1.
ETA: these get my vote b/c they lasted months instead of 7 hours like my first labor and 4 hours like my second. Oh, and my epidurals worked wonderfully, so I have good memories of labor.

My BFP Charts
Yes.. gall stones and kidney stones both were way worse than any of my labors.
I did have an epidural for the last 30 minutes of my labor,but it did not numb half of my body at all, and wasn't completely working on the other side.....
but I still can name several worse pains.
recovery from my csection
being cut open during csection with only half body pain relief
contractions when I was miscarrying
I had wrist surgery, and my wrist was splinted for 2 weeks. When I first took off the splint, that was worse.
I had a stomach virus at 36 weeks pregnant. I threw up every 15 minutes for about 5 hours, that was worse.
Actually,I complained more about getting my iv placed than giving birth.
