Male perspective - on one hand, the kidney stone was so painful (it took four days to pass) that I started out vomiting and writhing around on the hospital bed. On the other hand, they gave me dilaudid and I felt great! - and I'm not sure anyone giving birth has a similar option. So, in my admittedly male ignorance of childbirth, I'd rather have the kidney stone (presuming the right drugs are available). Plus, you do get to have a kid when it ends.
