Im.39 weeks now and just want to know if I have sex now will it hurt the baby? I was checked monday and my midwife could feel her head she's now at -2 so if my babys father and I have sex will it stick her in the head. Is it safe to have sex my due date is two days away so im thinking next week she'll be on her way out. I just don't want to hurt her.

If your water hasn't broken and it doesn't hurt you, you should be fine.

As long as your water hasn't broken and it is comfortable for you, go for it.  The prostaglandins in the semen can also help trigger labor if your body is ready ;)

 Go for it and good luck!  But remember, it won't do anything until your body is ready.  The baby emits a hormone when its lungs are developed that triggers labor.  Unless this process has already started, nothing will happen.  If the process has started, the sex could speed it up. 

Lots of walking is also good. 

My first came at 40w2d.

as the others have said it is safe as long as your water hasn't broken and can help labor along. my SO has huge issues with sex this late in pregnancy and i wish he didn't because im now past my due date, having painful contraction that come and go, and he won't have sex with me to help me get them closer together.

I just want her to come soon because I don't want to be induced and I do lots of walking I walk everyday and I go up and down the stairs.

 I completely understand.  I was so nervous once I hit my due date that the baby would never come.  Up until 41 weeks (assuming a healthy pregnancy) they don't even have to do extra monitoring.  At 41 weeks they start doing non stress tests and ultrasounds to monitor the placenta.  Most pregnancies will naturally lead to birth by 42 weeks.  Only at 42 weeks do you need to worry about induction (unless there are other medical issues like preeclampsia or a deteriorating placenta).
