So I have been having BH cx since 14 wks, getting stronger and more frequent the last couple of months. The last 2 times my dh and I DTD I have had some intense, really uncomfortable, painful and crampy cx that involve my lower back. (Last night was 2nd time, 1st was a few days ago).

They last a few hrs then go back to my reg. uncomfortable cx.

Anyone else?

I have 4 wks till my due date and I am hoping baby makes his/her appearance in the next 3-4 wks since I feel like my body is just barely hanging on as it is.

I have been extremely exhausted the last 3 days, even more so than normal, and I just want to sleep all of the time, even though I am sleeping really well at night (despite frequent bthrm trips).

I don't want to hurry up the next few wks but I am sooo ready to do this thing!

Once I had started early labor, DTD made my contractions come on super strong and I went full on into labor with DD. Not saying you are in labor, but I would be concerned, personally! Right now after/during DTD I get the strong tight BH ctx, nothing more. I'm just over 35 weeks.

During my last two pregnancies, when I was getting desperate toward the end we would DTD. It always caused painful contractions that went nowhere.

With my first pg dtd did not seem to have any effect. Second time around it resulted in painful ctx for the last several weeks and I did go into labor after dtd but who knows if one had anything to do with the other...This time around dtd has been making me crampy for months- so much so that it is preventing us from dtd (don't worry though we are still finding plenty of alternatives).
