    Everything ive read & have been told suggests its safe to continue dtd if your comfortable in doing so. Ive been told that unless you have been told by your doctor's not too its perfrctly safe. I did until 35 ish weeks with both my previous pregnancies then stopped as I found it uncomfortable. Check with your ob but anything you dont feel right about doing when your pregnant dont do.

    Don't think so - at 30 weeks I felt amazing and we were going at it like rabbits. I had a c section at 40+2.

    Unless there's a medical issue go for it! We kept it up until less than 24 hours before DS2 was born (although by that stage we were hoping it would encourage labour!).

    There is no reason not to unless you are at risk of preterm labour

    With our first we averaged morning and night throughout pregnancy except I might stop for a breather once every 10 says or so. The exception was the night before she gave birth.

    With our second it slowed to about 10 times a week

    And with our last it was about once a day

    Each and everyone with the exception of the night before.

    All three came within a day of due date.

    There have been no more kids. Hope that does not mean we have stopped having sex

    I did offer her a quickie each time while she was in labour. She hit me

    Old wives tale suggests that DTD will help induce labour. Along with curries, lots of pineapple and all other manner of things.
    But truth be told they only seem to make a difference when your body and baby have already begun the processes naturally. Otherwise there would be safety warnings against all those things for every stage of pregnancy

    As others have said, unless u were told not to from a medical professional. It shouldn't be an issue at all as long as you are comfortable.
