  • No need unless the doctor tells you specifically to stop, like in the case of premature labor. Some women have sex to induce labor when they are due.

  • I'm 34 weeks and I still have sex all the time. You never have to stop unless your doctor advises you to. Many doctors will suggest sex at the end to help bring on labor, sperm can soften the cervix and orgasm can start contractions but unless you are high risk you don't have to stop at any point unless you are experiencing pain, bleeding or you just feel uncomfortable and want to stop.

  • with my first i didn't stop until the day before i went to the doc and they said it was time to have my baby (at 38 weeks) with my second my husband deployed when i was about 6 months along so sex stopped but that didn't mean i stopped having orgasms...;)

  • You don't have to stop having sex unless the doctor says otherwise. I have been pregnant twice and had sex all the way up til delivery.

  • No, we didn't until the very end. That was only because my husband thought he would hurt the baby. I told him he couldn't. He didn't want to take any chances and poke her head (lol).
