  • Absolutely!!! I have 5 kids and I loved loved loved having sex all through my pregnancies. All the way up to the end. And all of my 5 kids were born early...and when I went in for monthly and then weekly checkups I was always dilated quite abit before when I did finally go into labor I was dialted to a 5 or 6 before labor even started...I fully believe having sex can help labor get into gear...

  • Perhaps. Isn't sperm suppose to soften the cervix?

  • You betcha. My son was more than ready to come out at 39 weeks and 2 days and making love daily aided in his arrival once he started showing signs of wanting out :)

  • Yep. My daughter's father and I had sex 3 hours before my water broke.

  • Nope. But science shows a man's sperm softens the cervix which can induce labor in some women.
