Sex related question

I'm 22 weeks into my first pregnancy and am not really sure about normal physical reactions during sex. It never hurts or is uncomfortable but afterwards my abdomen looks swollen. Even when I'm "flying solo", it happens just after climax. My baby bump juts out. It never hurts but now and then just feels like added pressure.
Is this normal or should I be speaking to my doctor about it?

It sounds normal to me, especially since you're not experiencing any pain. Having an orgasm actually makes your uterus contract a little (that's why docs will tell you to try sex to get labor going!), so it just sounds like that's what's going on. It won't hurt to mention in to your OB, though... you should join the December '11 birth board... I'm pretty sure that's when you're due, right?
