Painful Sex=Softening Cervix? ***Razzle**Dazzle*** 2 kids; Middleburg, Florida 2315 posts

Okay, so lately when I have been having sex with the hubs, I have been feeling very sore "down there". At first I didn't have any idea what it could be, then-bam!-like a ton of bricks it hit me. What if it is because my cervix is softening? I mean I'm 33 weeks even today, and I think that is a goo reason why. What to you all think? I just need closure on that lol. Oh and also, I have been contracting a lot more than I used to. Like mild to painful period pain contractions. Is that normal this early too?

I only give it up about once every 4-5 weeks. Last time (about a week ago) it hurt pretty bad. I know i'm starting to thin a little and diolate a little, so I know I gotta watch. I've been getting painful contractions, but only about 6 times a day.

Since it is both of yours first child it is more than likely braxton hicks but if you feel it is something else just go in and get checked
