  • sounds normal to me. If you are not high risk than youcan have sex all throughout pregnancy.

  • normal. technically you can have sex up untill the hour you give birth. I stopped around 30 weeks though because he wouldn't fit any more. the baby was positioned weird.

  • My doctor told me that unless there's a medical reason not to, that having sex is actually a very healthy thing to do, especially right at the end, something in the semen helps to ripen the cervix and makes giving birth a little easier.

  • It's normal for your uterus to do that, no worries!
    You can (and should, whenever you want) have sex up until your water breaks.
