Some people (aka me) deal with a 'toothache' or excruciating pain for far too long because they are scared of the dentist which is really counterproductive. I have never seen a pregnant woman who has been pregnant for like 15 years.
When you get a tooth taken out, the dentist just wants that bugger out. He yanks and pulls, knocks your other teeth, your jaw is open for a really long time and you can hear everything and feel the pressure. All of this is going on in your mouth, and it is a sciencey fact that the closer to the brain the pain is, the more it hurts. And where you have a baby is nowhere near your brain.
You can't eat after having a tooth extracted. You can't drink through a straw either. Lots of soft foods but zero desire to make soft foods. You might have to get a milkshake (bummer) and drink / eat it with a spoon. After you have a baby, not only can you eat but you can eat all the fun stuff you couldn't eat for 9 months. That sounds like fun.

A bonus is that you can get dry socket after a tooth extraction, doesn't that sound like FUN? You're not in danger of a dry socket when you give birth now are you?
Most importantly, when you give birth you get a baby in the end. When you have a tooth extracted, all you get is pain for a few days. Sometimes its so bad you want to bang your head against the wall to make it hurt somewhere else, if only for a second.
Also, I accidentally swallowed some gauze which would not have happened if I was giving birth.
Ok, so eventually I will get to a pain free zone and I can't wait for that.. I have had a toothache of some sort for at least 15 years. I know, I'm an idiot, you don't have to tell me. I'm just glad it's finally almost over. I don't know what I will do with myself without a toothache. Meanwhile, thank goodness for husbands who know their wives will freak the buggery out, cry the whole time and not be able to drive home. Thanks KC.
Obviously this is ridiculously tongue in cheek and I have never had a baby so what the heck do I know. Oh I know what I know, I had a tooth taken out and it hurt like a mother, that's what. I'm sure if and when I have a baby I'll be wishing for an extraction instead but until then... tooth extraction wins in my book. Also, I was kinda loopy when I wrote this.
What would you rather? Give birth or have a tooth taken out?
