Hi all,

This is my first pregnancy and it has been relatively easy. I have no medical issues, all my tests have been excellent and I have only gained 6 pounds so far (I will be 30 weeks this coming Friday.)

All throughout the pregnancy I have been enjoying sex (except for month 1 and 2 when I was dead tired all the time.) It really helps relax me but last night when me and hubby had sex I bled! After intercourse was over, I spotted for 15 minutes and then it stopped. I had no pains however and baby was still kicking like crazy but my poor hubby almost had a heart attack! Now he says no more sex for the rest of the pregnancy...
:

I called my midwife right after and the next morning to check in. I was having no pains or anything and she said to take it easy and give my cervix a rest for awhile. My midwife said this might happen more in the 3rd trimester because their is increased blood flow to the cervix and vagina at this stage in pregnancy. I have no problems with that, the scare it gave me and hubby will last for another few days but no more sex until February?? I know I probably sound kinda selfish but having sex always made me so relaxed and happy...

I just wanted to share my scare with you other mother's and see if this has happened with anyone else. Thanks for listening.

Awww
that's so scary! Hopefully time will heal the scare though and you won't be without the lovin' until February, I know I would go mad.

Though I can't give advice based on experience - I hope that it all works out.

Your cervix has a ton more blood vessels when preganant, so when you have sex it is often normal to have some spotting. I would talk to your m/w or ob about it to make sure, but the one time I had spotting I found this information in one of my Dr.Sears books, and after researching on line and it made me feel much better. HTH
