I would see about getting cheaked it could just be your cervex opening. Or bh they always get me worried. Just relax take it easy and see what your doc says. Since the pain went away I would assome they were bh. If you get them again try drinking alot of water. I know bh and labor feels alot alike. Your next doc apt shoule be this week right? Just ask him/her to check you.

I would def. Call your doc. And get in to see him/her... Anytime you have pains like that hun dont ever be afraid to call them or go into the hospital.. That is what they are there for.. I think by having intercousre that it did put you into active labor but it has eased up some.. Your doc. Will probally put you on bed rest and tell you to substain from having any type of intercourse unless your cervix is still closed.. But I would def.. Call you doc. And get checked.. Good luck to you hun and keep us informed
