Is it weird that I only get them after I orgasm? (Tmi?) And then I really don't think it happens. I'm 31 weeks.

Nope, its probably not bh, just some cramping. But that's totally normal!

It likely is BH and it's normal to get them after orgasming because it causes contractions.

I just hear it happens to other moms randomly, and was wondering if it's normal for me to only feel them after orgasm.

If it's after orgasm, its cramps and there's nothing to worry about its totally normal. And some people never feel braxton Hicks, I never did, and that's normal too

You might not be having general braxton hicks yet, but it could happen soon. It varies from person to person. Having orgasms definitely brings on uterine contraction, I wouldn't worry about it.

"Sex, particularly orgasm" (see link)
That's how it was with me for my first. I didn't feel BH until a couple weeks before having him.

Orgasms bring on Braxton hicks. Totally normal :)

Thanks ladies, I wasn't  worried at all, it was more like I was just wondering why I hadn't felt them at any other time then after sex.

This happens to me every time I have sex. After sex I get really bad BH.I asked my doctor and she said its completely normal. Orgasm can cause BH or contractions especially later on in pregnancy. A mans semen can also cause your cervix to soften.
