  • He's not going to touch the baby. Some docs are worried about infection after you lose your mucous plug. I would talk with your doc about your particular case. I know many people want to have sex bc they hope it will speed up labor.

  • I think your ok till your water breaks. I would ask a doctor or nurse to be sure though.

  • You're good to go until the water breaks:) Then there is risk for infection. My OB actually told me to go have sex when I was about 3-4 in her office!

  • As long as your water hasn't broken you should be fine. And between your orgasm and if he ejaculates in you it could help bring on labour. If you're in the mood go for it!

  • My dr recommended it right up til she broke my water. I lost my mucous plug more than a month before labor but she still said it was alright. We didnt want to induce so we were trying everything else possible first.

  • Oh, and just remember to be careful to take it easy! And dont worry about "dumb questions", we all have them, especially when something is new to us.

  • Until your water breaks, you're good to go! In fact, it can help things move along!
