"Softening" the cervix...


So, as most of you know it's a good idea to because the semen softens the cervix making it easier for baby to slide out. Now, I'm only 29 weeks so I obviously don't want to go into labor anytime soon, but I can't help but wonder if "softening" my cervix isn't a good thing to do right now...I always get paranoid it will get too soft and start opening up haha. Am I the only crazy one worried about this?

Semen contains prostaglandins which can set you off in labour but only if you are near enough anyway. Its unlikely to set you off early unless you are meant to be avoiding it for medical reasons.

Sex? What's that?

I honestly think it won't do anything unless your body is ready, anyway.

I was worried about this as well as luckily we are still having sex (hoping he gets fed up soon haha) I did read that your cervix wont soften till its ready nearer term, if your worried you could use condoms.
