Orgasm in Pregnancy
I am 25 weeks pregnant and noticed lately that whenever I have an orgasm my uterus seems to shudder and go absolutely rock hard for a few minutes afterward. Is this normal. I mean it feels like its set in concrete!! you can actually see the definition of my uterus standing out from my stomach. Will this "uterine hardening" have any adverse affects on the baby??

This is normal and will not affect your baby.
