Just started 3rd trimester, and sex causes some cramping in abdomen making it uncomfortable and a bit painful. Should i also be concerned for the baby?

No: The baby is fine. The impact to your cervix is causing your uterus to contract. That causes the sensation of cramping you feel. This is normal, and the contractions are not strong enough to cause labor or have any impact on the baby. ...Read more
