  • we always did! they say unless your water has broken or unless it causes extreme discomfort for you, that its ok...i always dialated to a 4 and had to have my labor induced, water broke. we always fooled around the night before the drs visit, because we knew it would be awhile before that would happen again! lol i know, tmi

  • Yep, and there is a chemical in their sperm that can help you go further along. It helps soften the cervix. My doc told me to have as much as possible lol

  • Yes. Sex is always ok unless your doctor tells you otherwise. Enjoy!

  • I don't know for sure, when I was walking around dilated at 3 - 4 cm for a week my dr said NO! It can cause an infection. Best to ask your dr!
