Sex is so painful! 8 months pregnant.. adult content

I'm 34 weeks pregnant and in the last week or so sex has started feeling different. About a week ago it felt like my cervix was lower or something and I felt tighter. We started using lube (we never needed it before) and it felt better for a bit but now it's almost unbearable to have sex! This started with two nights was painful but not awful and I still got off but tonight we tried and I couldn't even finish...I had to stop and perform oral instead. It felt like there was a knife cutting into my cervix!

This is my second pregnancy and I didn't have this issue the first time around...I was having sex the day before delivery with no discomfort. So my question is; is this normal? and is there anything I can do to help with this? I love sex lol and I don't want to give it up but I obviously don't want to be writhing in pain when I'm doing it...

  • Talk to your doctor about it.
    Discomfort with a big belly or awkward positioning is one thing, pain is not.
    Pain during sex is always a red flag.

  • I am sure your cervix is just lower this time, but I can't imagine wanting to have sex this close to delivery! You are a trooper!

  • If it is painful stop doing it.
    You should be seeing your doctor every week now. I would bring it up.

  • I don't see my doctor for another 2 weeks...they do weekly visits after 36 weeks.

    2kids2dogs2cats - LOL I had sex my entire first pregnancy...we had sex every day for the last 4 weeks actually...I had sex the day before I delivered.
