Embarrassing Question adult content

I am a little over 6 weeks pregnant. I have been starting to have vivid wet dreams that pretty much keep me horney and wet for the rest of the day. I know that I have read a few articles that said that sex and masturbation will not cause you to miscarry. If you have a miscarriage it's because something is wrong with the baby and therefore couldn't be carried for the whole nine months. While this is embarrasing, we have not been told to stop sex unless I had spotting. I have only had 1 spotting occurence and that was with a pelvic exam that the OB did which she said was normal.
I am sooo scared of losing this baby as it is my first pregnancy that we haven't had sex in 6 weeks. Should I believe that sex and masturbation doesn't cause a miscarriage and just go for it? I have heard that some of the best sex you can have is during pregnancy.
Any advice I would have. Please don't mean or judge me though. This is my first pregnancy and I don't want to do anything that has even a .01% chance of helping to lose the baby. Thanks

  • im in my second pregnancy now, but it really isnt bad to have sex during the pregnancy, it wont hurt the baby. just wen ever u get bigger u have to remember not to do it in positions that have u laying flat on ur back.

  • It's perfectly safe, unless your OB tells you it's not - if you're high risk, etc. It's great stress relief :)

  • I miscarriage last year and I was told having sex won't cause a miscarriage. I totally understand your worry. After my miscarriage last I found out I was pregnant 4 weeks later and I was worried until I got out of my 1st trimester.... I'm 6 weeks 1 day pregnant now and still worried.... When my son, I had the best sex drive.... now this pregnancy I don't want anything to do with it.

  • Most doctors will tell you that sex is actually good for a baby. Unless there are other complications, you are fine.

    You should also know that slight cramping and slight spotting can occur from sex. Neither is harmful.

    Keep in mind that an orgasm is like a massage for the baby.
