Im the first person to say, labor for me was HELL. I was 6 cent dialted before i had an epi, and then it only worked on one half of my body, so that was some EXTREME pain. But, i think that the abscess tooth Im suffering from right now, the pain was worse than labor last night. I couldnt talk or swallow, my gum feels like its about to explode. I have meds now but before i did, wow. Severe severe pain. That and a true migrane is worse that having a baby, imo. How about you? Whats worse? Oh and eta, im not a baby about pain either. Ive had problems in my back since i was 14 so im used to dealing with pain on a daily basis.

Peace- Meghan.

The closest I ever came to pain of that magnitude would be gall stones.

Kidney stones for me were 10 times worse than giving birth. I am sorry to hear you have an absessed tooth. YIKES.

 Labor was great for me. I was 10 cm when I walked into the hospital and they told me I wasn't in enough pain to be in labor.  The worst pain for me was when I had my knee kicked out from under me and it went into my other knee. I still have to wear a brace 10 years later.

I never had labor pains/contractions so I have NO how that feels.

 I have yet to find a pain as bad as labor. But i had a natural birth with my 1st and I got a particle epi with my daughter because i couldn't get passed 9 1/2 cm because of back labor. Try being 9 1/2 cm for 6 hours by that time i was so pissed off!

I had labor, and 2 c-sections and I would say kidney stones, and getting my wisdom teeth out were worse...

Having my uterus turn inside out after delivery was 1000 times more painful than giving birth.  I would say a really bad migraine is about 5 times worse than delivery.

Quoting BlacksheepSati:

Kidney stones for me were 10 times worse than giving birth.

 I totally agree! I've had to pass kidney stones four times (and my kidneys are still full of them so it's going to happen again- unfortunately) and it hurts so badly I wanted to just die. It's unlike labor pain because it's constant. With contractions at least you get a second of down time to regroup and prepare for the next one. With kidney stones it's constant, never-ending, excruciating pain and no mater how you stand, sit or lie down, you can't make it fade or go away.
