Re: sex question

I'm assuming you mean your orgasm... no, it can't hurt the baby. If you've got the mojo, then have at it, assuming your doctor has said it's ok (unless you have some problems, then it's usually ok).

Re: sex question

My doctor said that sex is totally safe up until the point that you give birth (just no acrobatics, lol). Just be prepared because semen and orgasm can bring on contractions. I had sex about 2 weeks ago and was in some discomfort for about 3 hours after. I had what felt like "real" contractions (back pain . . . . like bad menstrual cramps). It eventually went away and the doctor said it was no big deal. We're 36 weeks this week anyway . . . if it brings on the "real" thing, it's ok. We can have our babies safely at any time at this point.

Re: sex question

It won't hurt the baby but it might hurt you!!! Every time DH and I, well, you know, I get really uncomfortable afterwards. While it's fine during the act, it's never comfortable for me afterwards. My whole stomach gets tight and it feels like the baby is moving all to one side. But like the others said, if your doctors haven't given you any restrictons on sex, then you should be fine!

Re: sex question

No it can not hurt the baby. Like the last person said, sex is ok along as you doctor says it's cool.
