Post subject: Cramps after sex?
Hi,
I'm 9 1/2 weeks pregnant and am experiencing cramps in my sides low down after sex. Is this ok? It's not intense pain but just quite uncomfortable and a bit like the ligament stretching pains I had back at 4-5 weeks. I know i'm probably overreacting but if you guys can give me some reassurance I would feel a lot less guilty (and so I can stop my poor hubby thinking he's harmed me and the bubba!) about my raging hormones and less panicky about the pains!

you are approaching the stage where your pregnant uterus is starting to rise up to the top of your pubic bone. this will stretch your ligaments on either side of your pelvis. this will cause some discomfort or stretching pains. don`t worry- sex is unlikely to harm your baby as your cervix, a mucus plug, and the membranes protects your baby. amniotic fluid surrounds your baby, acting like a cushion so your baby is safely tucked up inside. watch for any low abdominal pain or bleeding though if you get this, your midwife or gp may advise against sex. otherwise its fine, enjoy it while your not so heavy!

Thank you so much, I feel a lot more reassured now. More so as you're a midwife!
