That is when I realize just how much I roared. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br>
(I wasn't yelling thank you very much. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> )<br><br>
Sore arms from pushing against things too.<br>
Anybody else have after affects from coping mechanisms?

Totally (not to the sore throat, but the body parts)... and I wasn't even in labor very long!<br><br>
Sore legs, back and tail bone from sitting on the bathtub surface for almost 2 hrs...

My right upper pectoral muscle was sore for a few days, and mt throat wasn't sore but it was a little scratchy.

My whole body hurt like crazy this time - ds was a bit asynclitic and I pushed so hard to get him out! We figure spending 4 hrs in the water probably utilized some muscle groups I don't normally exert, too.<br>
I forgot about the sore throat thing. Mine was so sore after dd's very noisy birth, and it was a bit sore after Henry but I was thinking I was getting a cold <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I wasn't noisy exactly but did the old low noises which do hurt your throat.<br><br>
The only soreness I've ever had after births was from coping mechanisms <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I'm thankful for it but it's funny, I never complain of a sore perineum but my arms will ache for days.

actually my throat is fine, but that may be, because I am a trained singer and instinctively 'know' how to use my voice without damaging it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
But my whole body is sore from my long labor, including my hands, from the hands knees position in the tub...<br><br>
I guess a c/s can't be called a coping mechanism <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> but that wound is obviously my birth side effect that sucks most. Can't wait to be moving freely again...

I had a very sore throat for a couple days from all my roaring! I groaned so loud during the pushing stage, I'm sure that was what caused it.<br>
My whole upper body and back was very sore also, I think it was from holding onto the side of the tub while I pushed.<br>
Funny, I too noticed my body soreness more than my perineum!

Not had this baby yet, but after ds was born my throat was sore the rest of the day. I was told I wasn't that loud but it hurt anyway!<br><br>
My knees also were really sore from kneeling on the hard floor while in the pool.<br><br>
My feet were uncomfortable as well as I was kneeling with my feet flat and didn't move for over an hour.<br><br>
I explained to my MW that this time I might need someone to help me move as I couldn't communicate that last time when I was uncomfortable.

Wow, you mamas who have no other complaints are lucky! I wasn't even going into that other stuff. My SPD was actually WORSE for a couple days. I literally had to have somebody lift my legs in and out of bed for the first two days. I felt like an invalid.<br><br>
My MW also told me I wasn't that loud, but my throat told me otherwise. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> Thanks y'all for giving me company so I don't feel like the only one who probably woke the neighbors. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
