From what I've read and been told (by my OB while pregnant with DD), sex during a healthy pregnancy is fine and won't cause labor unless you're at the end and your body is ready to give birth. Obviously, if you're on bed/pelvic rest, avoid it, but if you're healthy, its fine.

I read somewhere (I'm not sure how true this is) how endorphins (the chemical responsible for good moods and general feelings of well being) when released into your system by any fun or exciting experiences go through the placenta and make baby happy, too. If that's true, anything that makes you happy benefits baby, too.

I'm gonna google and see if I can find more about this endorphins and baby topic. I'll post links to my findings here.
