  • Try lying down on your side and putting your feet up and resting for a bit and see if that helps. If not time the pains and if they are getting worse and closer together I would call your DR, and congrats on your first little one by the way.

  • I don't know if I would chance laying down. I would call the doc asap. Your its normal to have contraction after sex, but sound like your in a lot of pain which doesn't seem like they are braxton hicks. Tell your doc what is happening and he or she will be able to tell you whether or not it should be concerning. Good luck!

  • You are pretty early still, the quicker they can stop labor ( if that's what it is) the better!

  • drink a glass of cold water and lay on your left side. if the pains don't stop, call you dr just to be safe.
