  • Sex should not hurt- even while pregnant. Find another position.

  • No, the babies are not at risk with this. I had twins and was having sex right up until the night before I gave birth :)

    Try putting a cushion under your knees.

  • Some twins are born early, others aren't. The average delivery date for twins is 33-34 weeks. I delivered at 38 weeks :)

  • Do whatever is comfortable for you. Sex should not hurt the babies.
    Of course there are always cases where sex should be limited but you'd probably know by now if you were one of those cases--bleeding after sex, your doc recommending you take it easy--but if you don't have any problems with your pregnancy then you should be good to go.

  • Sex will not hurt the babies, and any comfortable position for you is fine.

    My SIL delivered my nieces at 38 weeks.
