  • no you are fine. you can have sex as long as you want up until you actually go into labor unless you have problems and your doctor says otherwise. so enjoy the sex while you are still comfy with it!

  • It's totally fine for you to have as much intercourse as you want and enjoy - you will not hurt yourself or the baby. (If you have any pain or bleeding, that of course might mean you need to abstain for a few days.) If you like it, go for it!

    HOWEVER if you are not enjoying the sex right now and are only doing it to keep him happy, that's not healthy. You need to have good communication with this man if he is going to be the one raising your child with you, and if you can't tell him "not tonight, I feel like poop, could you rub my back instead?" then that's something that you need to learn. If you can say that, but he gets mad, sulks, makes you feel bad for asking, or ignores you -- that is bordering on abusive and needs to be talked about until you both can feel your needs get met. This is something that can be worked out if you both love each other.

  • Perfectly fine darling. Most (like 80-90%) of 1st trimester miscarriages are unavoidable as they are caused by chromosome abnormalities. Kind of like how a hen will kick an egg from her nest if there is something wrong with it, your body will do the same. So, have as much sex as you want, but like Collinsky said, if you aren't enjoying or wanting it, then don't just do it to make him happy. Trust me, after a while you'll start to resent him for it and that can lead to bigger problems. Easier to get a cold shoulder for an hour for saying no than to try to patch a relationship because of poor communication.
