sex at 37 weeks?
Hi ladies. I'm 37w5d & on Tuesday I was 2.5cm dilated and 60% thinned out & my doctor could feel my baby boys head with her finger. Well, now my husband is completely freaked out about having sex. He thinks it will hurt the baby. Me on the other hand, I want sex. lol. Especially since I can't for weeks after. Is he right? Will sex hurt my baby? Or will be hopefully help labor come faster? I'm going crazy, lol. any help would be great!

Unless your doctor told you not to you're fine lol. I was already at 1 and doc could feel baby's head by 29 weeks and my husband and I still have sex. He's not going to hurt baby but it's a pretty common fear

You're fine doing everything you've been doing as long as your Dr hasn't said otherwise.

Ladies above are right- unless otherwise advised not to.. keep it going! Haha, its normal to want sex during pregnancy, of course. But, men are more sensitive about it. We know our bodies and they dont. Sex this late in the pregnancy can help naturally induce labor. Tell your husband its FINE and to enjoy while he can, bc 6 weeks to a man is apparently like a lifetime.

So I  still 80 percent effaced and not dilated for 3 weeks now and dr will induce the 31 if baby hasn't come by then and I'm jut wondering will sex work to dilate if I am not dilated at all ???? Or do you have to be dilated for it to help progress???
