My uterus goes really hard during sex

Umm, this is a little embarrasing, but I am only 20 weeks pregnant, and when my husband and me have sex, my uterus goes really hard all of a sudden for about 30sec to a minute. Is this okay to happen? Does it harm the baby?

Answer: Hi, It is normal for the uterus to contract during an orgasm. This occurs also when you are not pregnant but you may be more aware of this now that you are pregnant. Best wishes, Alex
