  • Sex is safe unless you have had problems with a previous pregnancy. I think the hot tub raises the baby's body temp, not sure though. Showers are safe.

  • well.. sex is safe at pretty much any time during the pregnancy.... it wont hurt a thing. his penis is going into a totally different area than where the baby is. as for the hot tub... it gets too hot raising your body temp and in turn raising the babys temp. as for a hot shower, as long as its not overly hot, if you are comfortable your baby should be fine because you arent emersed in the hot water.

  • I had sex many many times in between the time I concieved and the time I found out about being pregnant. I was about five or six weeks when I got the positive test. I'm now 29 weeks and my baby is healthy =]

    Most people have NO IDEA that they're pregnant until they're at least four or five weeks, so they keep having sex like normal. You'll be fine =] Sex is the least of your worries, lol.

  • Sex is safe. Hot tubs increase your chances for miscarriage or fetal deformities.

  • Sex is fine && showers are too. Just not a steaming hot bath.

  • Sex is fine. Avoid hot tubs - they raise the body temp and they also can harbor germs (I have heard it compared to swimming in a toilet for germ levels).
