  • It's good for him, that's for sure.

    It's safe for as long as you feel comfortable. Ask your doctor.

  • lol... sounds like he just wants to get layed!!! It doesn't hurt the baby, but as far as it being good, maybe good at getting the baby to sleep (the rocking motion can put them to sleep).

  • Haha tell him nice try. It is not bad or good for the baby. It is just plain old sex. Now at the end of your pregnancy, having sex can help get labor started, which can be a good thing if you are ready to get that baby out, but until then, no sorry, there are really no negative or positive effects to having sex while you are pregnant.

  • Totally safe for baby......but I thinks it's more "good" for him. There are no scientifically proven benefits to a fetus with sex during pregnancy. Tell him if he wants some, it's okay but quit with the lame pep talk!lol

  • women who consistantly have sex during their pregnancy are more likely to go into labor close to their due date than those who didn't have sex.

  • LOL- well it can't hurt. You having an orgasm is good stress reliever, which is good for everyone involved, if that helps his case any.
