  • Yes to both is ok, watch cramping afterward and time it. If inconsistant and irregular you're good!!!

  • IF THE DOCTOR IS GIVING YOU THE OK FOR SEX, THEN GO AHEAD AND ENJOY IT..THOSE DAYS COME FAR AND FEW BETWEEN AFTER THE BABY...

  • I was the same way when I was pregnant!!! Dont worry about it! You will hear MANY things that will 'put you in labor' but dont believe everything you hear!!! I would ask your doctor if there are any risks of going early if you have sex... mine said that everything was fine! But every woman and every pregnancy is different!!! I had a friend that was told that if she had sex when she was prego it would poke the baby... LOL the things you hear when you are pregnant!!! LOL I went late with my second child... I was told that if you go over speed bumps fast it would put you in labor... it doesnt work! LOL I would ask your doctor if there are any concerns... they know best!!! Good luck!!! And congrats on the pregnancy! Is this your first? What are you having?

  • Having sex is not going to start labor unless your body is ready to have the baby anyway.

    Have sex...you won't be having very much for a while after the baby is born...so do it now. wink ;)

  • I say go for it! And you on top is probably the best position since you can control the depth of penetration.

  • If you can have sex go for it, but a condom must be worn, mens semen can start up labor, or just have hime pull out, but we use condoms because of this reason, my ob says its very important not to have semen in your vagina.

  • You do not need a condom. Some older OB's still suggest it but it is no longer the standard recommendation.
