sex a good idea?
So I started to spot last week, and have been continuously losing my mucous plug (tmi sorry). it is old blood..but the midwife said it is still an indication of dialation.
I have also been emptying my system out..and experiencing alot of pelvic pressure. So I know my body is gearing up for Labour. I HAVE to make it to 37 weeks before I qualify for a home birth..so I have 9 days to go.
Should I refrain from sex in hopes that I dont jump start anything?
My midwife comes out next thursday..but today is DH and my anniversary..and while I dont necessarily feel up to sex..it has been over a month:sneak: pregnancy steals my drive!
I do plan on asking the midwife..I cant really find anything on google...
I know it wont do anything if my body isnt going to go on its own soon..but I worry I am having a few too many early indicators.
When I was pg with Sophia my water broke immediately after DTD :lol: but I also didnt have as many indicators with her. I was surprised because I was only 38 weeks.
however one of my friends was having preterm labour indicators at 31 weeks, was put on strict bedrest..has been off for three weeks, and still no baby lol..so I know it doesnt mean he is just waiting for sperm to ripen the cervix to make his appearance.

Sorry if any of this is TMI

I think it's up to you, if you think you're body is gearing up for labor, it might be best to stay away from sex until you hit 37 weeks. I'm sure you're husband will understand ;)

I would definitely avoid it till 37 weeks! Sorry! Because of my history of miscarriage I avoided for the first 3 months and for a bit around 32 weeks. (and pregnancy had the opposite effect on me LOL!) Of course now - poor poor DH. Breast feeding KILLS my sex drive. sigh. some day!
