Hydronephrosis was more painful than childbirth. Hydronephrosis and appendicitus at the same time - definitely more painful than childbirth!

Kidney stones were WAYYYYY worse than labor.
Emergency c-section bring put under instead of pain medication and waking up to that raw ripped open searing pain though was worse than kidney stones. I couldn't move without crying for weeks...

You guys must have had easy labours that's all i'll say! Or I want the drugs you had with my next birth!!

I suffer with inflammatory bowel (colitis) which causes very bad pain sometimes and I broke a bone completely in two as a teenager and although that felt like my arm was being twisted and held in a furness it couldn't compare with my daughters birth! A high risk induction that was back to back! I must be mad to do it again

My labor between when they broke my water and before my epidural was the worst pain i have ever felt. I was induced with pitocin which they upped every 15 minutes all morning and by early afternoon was when they broke my water.

I've had breast reduction surgery, surgery to alter my inner nose structure and scrape my sinus. Menstual Cramps so bad that I can't walk until after some pain relief. I've missed days of school and work with cramps... Yet labor was worse. I couldn't function, couldn't breath, was shaking so bad I couldn't get out of bed as my legs didn't work. I didn't really have a break between contractions after water broke... They were right on top of each other.

So people's pain thresholds must be different for different things or peoples labor must all be different.

Though I will say.... Pain with labor is the most rewarding type of pain and totally worth it. All the other pains mentioned .... Don't think any of them are!

Altho I didn't find out until I accessed my notes months later that she was back to back!!

No i didnt have a easy labour, i also had back to back, 2 weeks of slow labour, and many other complications. But gallstones and pancreatitis are worse, and there are plenty of people who will agree.

I have IBS, broken several bones too, have had several operations, the pain was bad but your right it didnt compare to child birth at all. My sons birth was far worse. But gallstones really are a whole new league and gallstones and pancreatitis without any pain releif (due to pregnancy) is 100x worse than child birth.

I have not given birth yet, but acute appendicitis/emergency appendectomy at 23 weeks pregnant was the worst pain I have experienced. During my recovery the labor/delivery nurses who would come to my room to check Baby's heartrate with the doppler would joke that labor pains would seem easy compared to the pain of appendicitis. We'll see! I also went through my recovery and healing without taking pain meds out of concern for LO. That sucked but I was willing if it was better for him.

As others have said though, there are different kinds of pain. Sitting crouched in the emergency room with a nearly burst appendix, waiting for an hour before I was seen was a horrible kind of pain - bewildering, unrelenting, wondering what was wrong with me and how would they be able to fix this. It was a strangely helpless feeling.
With childbirth, at least you know why you are hurting, and that the reward for all your effort is a sweet little baby

I haven't given birth yet so take this with a grain of salt. . . but personally the worst thing I can imagine going through is constant severe dry-heaving unstoppable nausea... if its worse than that, i don't think i can get pregnant again...

Unless you're incredibly unlucky with your labour then I'd say the pains will feel like nothing compared to the appendix pain! Well done you for managing without pain meds! I couldn't, I took everything they would give me and begged for more (but I was waiting 2 weeks before they realised my appendix was inflammed, by the time they took it out the cell walls were already breaking down, so close )

I think a lot of the time with labour/birth pain. You know it is coming and can spend months preparing yourself for it.

There's s lot to be said for being mentally prepared and accepting of the experience. It makes it easier to deal with than something unexpected.
