  • Well, most doctors recommend that you don't have sex after your 6 months pregnant, unless you are trying to induce labor. But it is VERY normal to feel sore and maybe even tender after sex when you are that far along. But if the pain gets unbearable you sould consult a physician.

  • I have never heard a no sex recommendation for any point in a pregnancy unless there are complications. But yes sore is normal, try using KY or having hubby be a little gentler on the lady parts lol

  • I have never heard that people should not have sex after month six. I have had three kids and always have been told that sex is safe as long as there is no risk for preterm labor. Even if there was, 37 weeks is considered full term, so she is fine to be having sex.

    Anyway, lay down and rest, if the pain gets worse then call the doctor. Your cervix is getting ready for labor, so it is bound to be tender. I had that pain several times and rest helped it ease. If it does not go away then call the doc, but they are probably going to tell you that you are fine unless you are bleeding or contracting.

    Good luck with your LO :D

  • Pressure, stretching...oh yeah totally normal, but be careful having sex so far along. Just be gentle and go slow.
