Anyone else get strong Braxton Hicks after an orgasm?

I get them at other times too but nowhere near as strong as they are after an orgasm. They don't last very long and I'm pretty sure it's not a bad sign but I'm hoping I'm not alone?

yep, that's normal, no worries

Yep, normal - concrete uterus afterwards here too. Good for uterus, good for baby, good for you! (Orgasms help ripen the cervix towards the end, too.)

Good to hear smile Thank you both.

Yes apparently the uterus usually contracts with an orgasm but when preg you feel it a lot more as its bigger and stretched and full of baby.
I can see a definite outline of what position baby is in after an orgasm!

good or bad news, you decide, but for some women BH after sex can turn into proper contractions and bring labour on!
( I don't know how common or rare that is)
