Afreen, ah, sex during pregnancy can be very good because of all the blood and wetness around that area. When I was pregnant, my husband had an absolute ball and I was as horny as a teenager. The relaxing effect and the feel good hormones that you get during and after orgasm is also good for your baby.

Unless your doctor told you otherwise, it is perfectly fine. The baby is well protected and cannot be hurt during sex or by just moving around. If your doctor thinks that your baby is at risk, they will normally tell you to avoid any sex.

You have to be extra careful of infection and STD's during pregnancy. Don't engage in risky sex. I am sure you and your husband is fine though.

Only during the last few weeks should you avoid sex. Ask your doctor the next time you see him/her on when you should start to avoid sex.

Take care!
