Braxton hicks during the day and after sex

This is my third child and I'm currently 25 weeks almost 26. I keep getting alot of pressure in my lower stomach and Braxton after sex sorry of tmi. I do work 13 to 14 hours a day every day of the week as I run my own in home daycare. I'm hoping that the stress of my job isn't going to send me into early labor. Has any one ela had this problem I feel like I'm having a lot of trouble even moving now because of the constant pressure pushing in my lower stomach

I used to get the same thing , it sounds a little normal I get Braxton hicks ALOT & with the pressure . As long as you're not getting painful Braxton hicks where you feel like you can't walk or talk threw the contractions you're fine .

This is also my third pregnancy and I've had that pain after sex with all 3 of my babies. I over carried both and am 36 weeks now with this baby and still have that pain every time we have sex and walking around after definitely makes my contractions stronger. But they always end up stopping. But every body is different so all I can tell you is to just keep an eye on how you're feeling. If the contractions become strong and close together you should get checked out just in case. Best of wishes to you!
