    Default Placenta Previa and 'The Big O'

    I am currently 16 weeks pregnant and during my 12 week ultrasound it was discovered that I have a low lying placenta that is covering my cervix. I have been told to abstain from sex, heavy lifting and intense excersise.

    What i'm wanting to know is can I still have an orgasm?? Or is this off limits too? I was somewhat overwhelmed during my visit to the doctors and this question was the last thing on my mind. However, a month on, and raging with hormones, I'm starting to get frustrated.

    Sorry if TMI but I have still been pleasuring my husband and we are keen to know if he can return the favour I do not see my doctor again until the middle of March and obviously I would never do anything to jeopardise the health of my baby but wanted to know if I was 'going without' unneccessarily.Has anyone had first hand experience with this?


    (Sorry for the double post, I think my first one was in the wrong place)
