  • Have a kidney stone. You get over a kidney stone. You never get over having a baby, it's a lifelong committment. LOL!

  • I'd rather give birth. At least with birth pains, there is a down time in between pain and with a kidney stone there isn't; it's constant with no break.

  • I would rather give birth. I have been dealing with kidney stones for 3 1/2 years. I have had 3 litho treatments and 8 surgeries in that time. I am still going through it. I will find out in 2 weeks if it is over with. I pray it is.

  • Seen my family members go through a lot of kidney stones. However, I would imagine giving birth could put you in the same amount of pain.....unless of course you took drugs. LOL Sent my sister a card that said...don't get stone, only kidneying. She didn't like my humor.
