Here Is Your Answer :)
It's mainly the prostaglandins in sperm that trigger things - when they
induce labour artificially, the first step is usually applying
prostaglandin gel to the cervix. Having sex to hasten labour does the
same thing, so long as sperm gets to the cervix. Uterine contractions
caused by orgasm *might* trigger bigger contractions. Just being in the
mood shouldn't cause labour - but you never know. Being in the mood
might actually be a result of being ready for labour... :-)

Pregnancy for couples is a time when physical closeness matters a lot.Having sex is no way harmful to your baby unless otherwise told so by your obgyn.Later on in your pregnancy sex may cause a few braxton hicks contractions to occur.Orgasm can set them off but they usually fade away after a few minutes.A woman's body produces hormones during sex which can help nudge her into labor and male semen contains substances called prostaglandins which can help start contractions, however it will only do this if you and the baby are ready for labor.I hope this helped.

Ok let me see here. In the early stages of labor you will have low backache which is caused by the baby settling down into the pelvis.You will have a sudden desire to get everything finished and ready for the baby.Contractions will start off very weak and will be low down at the front of the abdomen,you will then have a little bit milder contraction known as the intermitten contraction which last a few hours and then fade away.You will definitely have diarrhea and a frequent feeling that your bowels must be emptied.At last but not least your mucus plug will discharge,dont worry if it is streaked with a little blood.Your mucus plug dropped usually means two weeks or less until delivery.Good luck.

Just FYI :)
You won't always have diarrhea...I have had four kids and not once did I get the runs before I went into labor. Also I lost my mucus plug for my first daughter but with my other three kids it never came out prior to labor! I had only back labor with 3 of my kids and never felt the contractions in front! I only had the nesting (need to clean) feeling with my first and last...this just shows that everyone is different during pregnancy and labor! Good luck!

Sex
From what I hear months. I am sorry I know that is not what you want to hear but sounds to me like you should have your baby soon. I will pray for you.

If you havent had her by the weekend you should have sex and see what happens
