Ask Amy: He won’t shut up about how his pain was worse than childbirth


Dear Amy: My husband, who is a wonderful person, has a habit of retelling various stories. That’s fine, but there is one story that drives me crazy.

He has passed kidney stones, which he says (and I believe) were very painful.

His sister also had kidney stones. She has given birth to three children. My husband says that his sister told him that kidney stones are much worse than childbirth and she would give birth anytime over a kidney stone episode.

Personally, I have never had kidney stones, but I have given birth and it was no picnic. I find it irritating that he compares the two and tries to one-up me on pain!

Do you have an appropriate response?

No Stones
