In brief: Stones Hurt
I have had women tell me their stones hurt wise than delivery.
And no beautiful baby to show for it.

In brief: Hard to estimate
Labor and kidney stone are among the most painful things that can happen to (consider also burns, intestinal obstruction, etc.
) you. I think the internal wiring of women's brains sort of helps them forget this and so they will get pregnant again. No one would voluntarily get another urinary tract stone. Both at the time rate 10 out of 10.
