  • It will not hurt baby. It is good for your emotional being and it also helps when it is near delivery time.

  • having sex does not hurt the baby. now laying on ur back can decrease the supply of oxygen to the baby. but the sex itself will not hurt the baby.

  • Nope. If your belly is in the way, it might make you uncomfortable. I recommend pillows to prop you up. But the baby is snug and safe inside with plenty of amniotic fluid and fat to cushion.

  • nope...i'm 20 weeks and my bf and i still do it in the missionary position....the baby has plenty of cushioning...they tell you to try different positions more for your own comfort...not for the baby

  • you're at the point where you should try not to be on your back but the baby will be fine. as for your own comfort, that's another story lol
