  • Well you can start your labor by having sex! It depends on if you want that to happen or not! I admire you for even wanting to, by the time I was that PG the last thing I wanted to do was have sex, LOL!!

  • I had sex after I started to dialate (sp?). I think it's ok as long as your mucus plug is intact.

  • You can have sex, unless otherwise directed by your doctor, until your water breaks.

    If you are cool with the scheduled c-section, good luck. But, even with gestational diabetes- the chances that your doctor is wrong with the baby's size is greater than 60%. You could easily still birth a 7-8 pound baby, because they really cannot tell you the exact size. It is just a guess. That and 10 pound babies are not too big either. :-)

  • I believe my doctor told me not to when I was that far along and being that your having a SCS I wouldnt want to make yourself go into labor.

  • I had 3 very large babies (10 lb 2 1/2 oz, 9 lb 13oz, and 9lb 6oz) and I'm glad I had them vaginally. I think you're okay to participate in "marital activity"!!! (hahaha), just watch for it to jump-start your labor!

  • As long as your dr didn't say anything, go for it. You're 38wks anyhow.

  • Risk your husbands trust. THIS IS YOUR SISTER, he is talking about. My ex had behaved disrespectful about me in front of my close brother when we were married. My brother never told me until after the divorce. I would have wanted to know it during the bad marriage because I felt obligated by my ridiculous religious upbringing to stay in it. Had I know this info at that time, it would have saved me lots of embarassment and shame that I experienced just by being his wife.
    I resent hidden secrets, and I am sure your sister would too. If you tell her and she does nothing about it, then at least you put it out on the table for her to sort it out. But by not telling her, she gets no choice.
