Are contractions after sex normal at 36 weeks?

Are contractions after sex normal at 36 weeks?

Yes, but these are: usually Braxton-Hicks or false labor contractions. Unless you're about ready to go in to labor anyway, they are unlikely to trigger true labor. If your contractions are very strong, you might want to abstain from sex for another week when you'll be at term. Then, in the unlikely event that it does trigger true labor, you're baby should be fine. Best wishes to you! ...Read more

Ultrasound says my fetus is 6 weeks 2 days but my gestational sac is 7 weeks 2 days. Heartbeat is normal. Is everything ok?

Most likely: The most accurate measurement of the fetus is the crown rump length. The gestational sac is like a fluid filled balloon, not a perfect sphere. So the measurement of the sac can vary quite a bit depending on what part was measured. If there is already a fetal heart beat, that is a great sign. Keep your follow up appointments with your OB doctor. ...Read more
