Any ideas ?

So fiancé and I decided to get intimate last night for the first time since I got pregnant! I was a little worried bc I've heard stories of how it can induce labor etc. I'm 36 weeks& 3 days and after the sex I slowly started cramping but I didn't think anything of it bc I've heard mild cramping is normal and will stop but alllllll night long I was having painful Crampy feeling braxton hicks, they were regular, coming every 5ish mins lasting 1 min each. The only time the intensity grew was when they first started then they stayed the same intensity all night. These were def not my normal BH's!
Any ideas on what they were??

Re: Any ideas ?

Your due date is getting pretty close, I would think it was just your uterus taking an opportunity to start getting things going. Just monitor yourself... Drink some (lots) of water and rest today. If things get more intense, call your care provider. You're term in a few days, just relax and try to keep that LO where he is til then

Re: Any ideas ?

Also, if it's been that long since you two had any mommy and daddy time, it was probably kind of a shock to your system

When I got closer to term with my 2 DDs, the same happened with me after being intimate with DH. Sometimes the BH contractions would be pretty intense, lasting for hours after an O.
