Did Sex Put You In Labor?

Just wondering. I am 36 weeks and 2 days pregnant and my husband has been travelling all week and I *ahem* miss him...however the doctor told me today that I am over a cm dilated and that she wouldn't say to abstain but it could put me in labor...and i am trying to make it to my scheduled c-section in 2 1/2 weeks. Well...my husband is telling me NO because he doesn't want to put me in labor, but I don't think it will! I couldn't go into labor with my son no matter how much I tried! So does anybody think it really works, is hubby being silly??

If you HAVE to wait til your c-section for medical reasons I would say hold off just to be on the safe side. But if you can go into labor and be ok with getting to your hospital in time to do a c-section then I would say it can't hurt anything. Your baby won't come unless he or she is ready no matter how much sex you have. But if hubby is worried about it then it could make him have a hard time Ummm getting it up for ya.

 well it put me into labor a few times and they had to stop my labor.  But if you insist  make sure he doesnt cum inside of you=)

I have been in early labor since Sunday literally i am 90%effaced and dialated at a 2, if sex worked for us this little guy would be here by now. I should also mention I have been having contractions every 5-6 minutes as well and still no baby.I think he is just being stubborn as all get out.

It's hard to say if that was what actually put me into labor, but I personally believe yes it did.  My doctor recommended it as a natural way to start things.  It's not like it happened the first time, but over the course of a week or so, yes I did go into labor.  I didn't walk a lot or try any of the other natural methods.  But it's still hard to say because if I hadn't have had sex, I still might have gone into labor on my own anyway.  I had him at 39 weeks to the day.  I don't know how long I was dilated, but about 5 days prior I was checked and was 2 cm and 50% effaced.   Before then, I don't know because they never checked.

Definatly don't let him cum inside you that's what does it. And yes it actually put me in labor. We did the deed and about 2 hours later I started contractions. Although it was 2 days past my due date so maybe it wasn't 100% that
