  • Yep, that may happen. They're not harmful, unless you're at risk for preterm labor (your doctor would have you on "pelvic rest" if that was the case). My tummy would be hard for like an hour after a good orgasm when I was pregnant.

  • Yep, normal. The vagina and uterus contract during orgasm - it causes the cervix to dip into the vagina more for conception purposes. Funny how that works, huh?

    BH contractions obviously are no big deal. It just shows that your body is gearing up and preparing for labor.

  • Having an orgasm will definitely bring on contractions. No worry, what you are feeling is normal =)
