I haven't had SEX in 5 months!!!

My husband is currently out of the country.  Haven't seen him in over 5:months.  I'm pregnant with my 3rd baby and due in one more week.  Will not having sex through out my pregnancy affect my Labor? I'm afraid I'll take longer to dilate.  Please comment! Thanks.

No, i walked a lot with my daughter and didn't have sex since i was 4 months and when i arrived at 6-7 centimeters at the hospital, i checked in at 5am and had her within 3 hours or less because i was in recovery around 8:30. It all depends on your body. Seven years later, and 37 weeks along, having sex makes me even more confused because my body can handle pain so I'm not sure what's contractions. Good thing the hospital is a mile away our i would be having him with my husband as the doctor, lol.

I know the frustration of having to deal with pregnancy alone as i did it with my daughter. Be encouraged and know you will see your little buddle of Joy soon and your husband will too.

My first I was wry active in both walking and sex and she was a week early. I can't remember how fast I dilated.
This time I've been into much pain to do much I only run after her if her dad isn't around, and sex only 3-4 times the entire pregnancy. Just not interested. I've only been dilated at 1cm for over a month now. With 6days left I feel she's going to take her sweet time getting here.
