  • No. They recommend you don't have sex, take baths, or anything that involves fluids entering your body. Without the mucus plug, you're more at risk for infections.

  • You can have sex until your water breaks. I never had a mucous plug and had sex the day before labor with each pregnancy.

  • Anouck is wrong. It's perfectly safe to continue to have sex until your water breaks, even if you're IN labor :)

  • Yes, you can still have sex as long as your water hasn't broken.. A lot of women lose the plug weeks before labor starts :)

  • Oh damn, you're all right, for some reason I was thinking she was talking about the water breaking... I'm 38 weeks myself, I'm totally losing my mind, heh.

  • IMO Ewww lol, I felt gross, but it was only a day later our DD was born so it wasn't a long wait.

  • No. You have a lifetime for sex, but only a day or two to make sure your child is healthy. Try something less "invasive" if you get my drift.
