ChipNASA: *MAN* speaking here.

Kidney stones are more painful than giving birth. (I've had them three times.)

I got shot up with morphine three times just to get me out of the fetal position for x-rays.

Women are pussies. *Really*.


THIS!^^^^^^^^^

And their is no pleasure-pain principle involved with kidney stones. Just the pain and a shiat-load of it. I've had to many honest women tell me that a normal delivery really doesn't hurt that much and much of the so-called pain is just histrionics. Seen too many babies born not to believe them.

TheNewJesus: My wife pushed for about 2 hours. We watched E.T. in it's entirety during labor.

Elliott is now almost 4 months old.

/serious


You named your kid Elliott?

/He's going to hate you.

Marcintosh: Doctors don't really have a handle on pain at all.
Hell, look at how many addicts doctors make each and every year.
As much as I distain the medical professions I really don't think making addicts from patients is intentional.


The medical stance is that you should treat the pain and then, later, treat the addiction.  You don't keep someone in pain to avoid a future treatable condition.

My first son was born after 33 hours of labor.  Second was about 8.

Those 33 hours were the worst--the aches and pains from sleeping on those crappy hospital fold-out beds really made it hard to hold my wife's hand when the crowning started.

YES.

I got a kidney stone some months before my wife delivered.  After comparing the two, I no longer buy this "women have a higher tolerance for pain" crap.


Lest anyone pull the "apples to oranges" card: my aunt passed a stone while pregnant with my cousin (her firstborn). She initially thought she was going into premature labor and figured this was the agony she had heard so much about. After having the baby, she said the stone was so much worse than actually giving birth.

As for the immediate childbirth -- yeah, I don't blame the parents here. It's like $1000/hour to be in the hospital, every minute counts!

IRQ12: USCLaw2010: My wife had a c section. She was a week past due and they tried to induce for about 12 hours and after that wasn't having any effect we cut him out

That's pretty much the SOP for an unnecessary c-section. (not saying anything about your particular case)

I would love to see some stats about induced labors that end in c-section.  I'll bet it's huge.


Just looked up the stats for how often induced labor ends in csection and the study I found said induction increases the likelihood of csection by 67%. Probably because inducing labor makes everything more intense and stressful on the baby.

My son (also named Elliott!) was delivered by csection in just such a circumstance. My water broke, labor wasn't progressing as fast as the hospital would like (I'd only been there for like 6 hrs at this point and baby and I were doing fine), they gave me pitocin, contractions came on like a mofo causing baby's heart rate to go up, so they cut him out because he was in distress. From the strength of the contractions. Because of the pitocin. Sigh.

I'm pregnant with baby #2 now and going to be having another csection simply because I had one with my first and that's just what they do in most cases.

The miracle of birth is that, having witnessed it, anyone goes for a second round.

I've seen tidier IRA bombings.

Wait. Are you saying a hospital and doctors would opt for a more invasive and extremely more costly procedure instead of letting humans do their most basic biological function?

Shocked I tells ya!

Next thing you are going to tell me is that the steep rise in ADD can be directly linked to children being raised by XBOX.

Supposedly it is much easier for a woman to give birth on hands and knees.

Lying on her back strapped onto a table with her legs up in the air was invented for the ease of the doctors. It's not good for her.
