  • No, it actually helps prepare your body for labor.

  • There is no reason to abstain as long as your pregnancy is not high risk.

  • I was single during my whole pregnancy with my last. So no relief for me even though my hormones kept me on fire!!

  • I had to for the first trimester with my oldest (bleeding so my doctor put me on pelvic rest) and for most of the pregnancy with my second child (bleeding plus borderline placenta previa and a small abruption.) With my third we were good to go.

  • I felt so yukky that I really didn't want any sex. I can't imagine being so horny that I would beg. But My DH wanted it all the time. He had no concerns about hurting the baby. Be grateful your husbands cared.

  • Nope. It was AFTER when I had to abstain; but all women do.
