Hi, I have been a lurker for a while, and I finally need to ask a question, so I thought it was time to come out of hiding.
I believe I'm seven weeks, but I haven't had my first OB appointment yet. This is my second pregnancy, but the first ended in a miscarriage at six weeks in December of 2008.
From the day before I found out I was pregnant, I was having mild menstrual-type cramps, and they continued for a couple of weeks. At one point, last Monday, they got bad enough for me to call the OB. There was no blood, and from reading on here, I expected the nurse to tell me that cramps are normal, nothing to worry about.
I was wrong. She said that every time I have them, I am supposed to abstain from intercourse and try to lie down and put my feet up. This was ridiculously difficult, considering I was having them pretty constantly and I have a full time public service job. Since my husband and I had sex the day before I called, we decided to abstain completely until the cramps stopped.
It's been at least a couple of days since I had any, do you think we could resume our normal sex life at this point? If not, is it just vaginal intercourse that could aggravate the problem, or any orgasm? I don't want to risk causing any problems, I'm super paranoid about it, but I also don't want to go without for no reason.
Thanks in advance.
