    Ok... :blush:

    So I've been wanting to ask about this in here for a while now, but I guess I never had the courage!

    Basically, I was wondering whether anyone else noticed a change in the feel/shape of their bump after an orgasm? I mean, I am fairly regular in my "O"s I guess you'd say, but whenever I have one these days, afterwards I notice that my bump goes all hard and tensed up, and then gradually eases back to a normal "soft" bump over the next couple of minutes...

    Has anyone else had this? Does anyone know why it happens? I'm just curious as to what goes on in there when I'm... 'busy'... out here! :rofl: :blush:

    Thanks ladies!

    Shadow xx

    Hmmmmm fascinating! So I guess it's Branston Hick, eh? :rofl: I had no idea thats what it was, though: I'm totally intrigued! Does everyone get them with "O" ? I'm reading that you can get them at any time, but that's the only time I've ever had them I think!

    When you orgasm your womb contracts, it's part of what makes the nice feelings. Normally you don't notice, but when you're pregnant your womb is bigger so you can feel the contractions.

    Do you have an anterior placenta (at the front?) like me?

    My midwife told me that any braxton hicks or orgasms :blush: would make my tummy go extra hard because of the location of my placenta, as the hormones etc which are released into your blood stream after an O make your placenta contract a bit too (as well as your uterus). Weird.

    Told me it was nothing to worry about though.

    Yep, bump goes so hard. Find it difficult to get back up till it relaxes. It gets worse towards the end, i remember being able to see which side my daughter was layed has my bump went a odd shape.

    Well all I was told about my placenta at last scan was that it was "Up and out of the way, just what we like to see" So I'm not sure if it is anterior or posterior!!

    So interesting to hear that pretty much everyone gets this, isn't it funny the little things we would never be told about in pregnancy until we experienced them for ourselves? Hehehe...

    Hmm, doesn't tell you much, just that it's not low, which makes things a little more difficult.

    Yep its totally normal hun, when we orgasm our womb contracts, thats why they say try making love near your due date to bring on labour but this only works if the baby is ready to come so don't panic. hope this helps, take care :hugs: xx
