  • It sounds like you could be in labor a little. I had HORRIBLE back pains when I was in full on labor. I bet you go into labor soon ;o)

    Good Luck!! :o)

  • it sounds like Braxton hicks to me. Youre still only 38 weeks theres almost no point trying to MAKE it come, itll come when the baby is ready

  • Does it happen evertime you had sex? If so that is normal. Also if it doesn't stop I'd say that's labor. Sometimes sex can make you have braxton hicks.

  • if you havent lost your plug yet it might be starting but if the plug is gone i would stop having sex asap in case your water breaks too lol that might be odd for both of you. go on a walk. I walked for 2 hours with my first to speed things up.

  • I was told that orgasm can stimulate contractions. Unless they keep up, it's not labor, but it could help move things along if you're close. Semen has a softening agent in it, as well, that can help effacement (again, if you're close).
