  • sex and foreplay will not cause a miscarriage. you can have sex, barring complications, until the day you give birth lol. :)

  • Sex is absolutely fine during pregnancy unless your doctor tells you otherwise. You may have some light spotting afterwards, as your cervix is a LOT more sensitive...I had this and was pretty concerned, but it was a-ok. :)

  • Sex is fine as long as you don't experience bleeding or cramping- if you do, stop & see your obgyn to get checked out.

  • As long as there is no bleeding or cramping or risk, then it is completely ok.

  • Have sex until it becomes uncomfortable your body will tell you. I am 38 weeks pregnant and still have sex daily. It has helped me dilate and helps me feel better about the delivery. Do not be paranoid about miscarriage you have your whole long pregnancy to worry, and you will. So just relax take care and enjoy your life now before the nausea and/or extreme tiredness starts to take over.

  • Sex is fine as long as you're comfortable, but if you've had a previous history of miscarriage and you're worried, I might wait til you have your first dr visit and get the okay.

  • Unless you're high risk for some reason, you're good to go. It may feel different, though, and it may be uncomfortable.
