    BDing while 38 weeks

    i have a question for all those ladies out there who are around 36-40 weeks, or if your woo hoo is as swollen as mine is...

    i know that BDing can progress labor (well some think it does, some don't) and my question is... what if you aren't looking to progress labor and you just wanna "make love" to your baby daddy... does it still have the same outcome if you don't have an agenda? i know this all sounds crazy. i am also very swollen down there, so much so i can not bend (squwat) down anymore because it hurts so much. is anyone else having the same issue when it comes to BDing? i mean, i definately want to, just to be closer to my hubby...but it hurts!

    Okay, well, TMI of course responding to this question, but last week, before the 36 week point, I had a lot of pain and pressure after FD'ing. Interestingly enough during FD was fine, but after we were done and I stood up and so on, I was feeling very bad down there for quite a while. But last night (I'm now 36 1/2 weeks), I felt completely fine, from start to finish.

    I wonder if how exhausting of a day and how much time you were on your feet has anything to do with it too?
