  • Maybe lay down for a little bit before you get up and see if that helps. I am only 23 weeks and I'm pretty sure sex is causing me to have braxton hicks. Every time we have sex a little bit afterwards my tummy always tightens up a few times, and I don't orgasm every time, so its not necessarily orgasm.

  • Sex can do that. I've had that happen in all of my pregnancies. Baby seems to ball up right above my pubic bone while we are having sex and stays there for a while. It helps if you have sex while spooning or another position where there isn't added preasure on your belly.
