Is it safe only up to a certain point or ok the whole pregnancy?

Sure. It's not like you can get any more pregnant. lol.gif

Seriously, barring any complications (in which case your care provider will discuss limitations with you) there's no reason to avoid sex. Enjoy it while you can!

haha this made me laugh. 

 

Yiup discuss with doc but you will know when its enough.  I didn't but have a history of preterm labor... so sex really made me contract a ton and didn't want to risk anything.

I stopped at around 24 weeks, but that's because I was having a lot of contractions and my OB recommended that I avoid penetration and orgasm, because both seemed to be aggravating my contractions. But as long as you are comfortable and enjoying it, and you are not having complications, there is no reason not to enjoy yourself right up until the babies are born.

We fooled around until my so-called 7th month. I had to use the "sex wedge" which I ended up

sleeping with all the time because it was so comfortable. The sex started getting ridiculous and

I wasn't able to enjoy it any longer. Without being too graphic - there was a great position of us

spooning on our sides and he'd hold my top leg up for uhh access but my darn leg would

cramp up and I'd end up with a Charlie Horse!!! AGH!

 

Then our tried and true stand up - bend over position which worked out great until I threw my

back out from the weight of the babies shifting my core forward.

 

After the 7th month we did one at a time (if you know what I mean). :)

 

Now we're able to have kangaroo time with each other and it's GREAT! I actually resumed sex

3 weeks after the girls were born and haven't stopped since. lol.gif

 

It's one of the few things I look forward to after a long day of breastfeeding. BTW, my husband

thought this emoticon: thumbsuck.gif was the symbol for fellatio. whistling.gif

I had a ton of sex after week 40 hoping it would help kick start things.  Nothing.  If the contractions are just from orgasm and don't continue then I'd say go for it.    As for sex from weeks oh, about 30-40, not so much!2whistle.gif  The contractions hurt, a lot, and it just wasn't worth it imo.  Plus that big as a house feeling isn't very conducive for... well.... anything!

Sex has definitely slowed down for us. I'm 34 weeks now and we're able to have sex about every other week. I'm usually on my side with my leg propped up on pillows. I'm enjoying it as long as it doesn't take a long time, LOL. My OB & Peri never forbade us because my cervix is staying so long, despite all the contractions I'm having. I truly think it depends on how you feel and what your doctor or midwife says, as well as your past history.
