Sex and pregnancy?

Hey ladies, so this one's an intimate subject- literally. I'm now starting my 8th month of pregnancy and throughout my 2nd trimester I've definitely been in the mood more. However my husband seems to be unable to fathom having sex with a baby 'on board'. We have been active a couple times when i was smaller but now it's a bit tricky and he isn't comfortable with feeling the baby move or isn't able to condition his mind around it. Has anyone else been in a similar situation? Also is it really true sex in your lst trimester can help with labour and prevent tears?

    I dn't know about preventing tears but I've heard it can help move labor along when you're close to the end. It wouldn't cause someone to go into labor early, though.

    Perineal stretching will help prevent tearing and episiotomy and that is worth doing.

    No sex if your husband is too big it will make you miscarry foreplay only

    Yes, if you're having a healthy, normal pregnancy, sex is safe. Although as your third trimester progresses and you get bigger. You may have to be creative about your positioning during sex to avoid discomfort. On the other hand, sex may not be safe during the third trimester in certain circumstances, including these: Your placenta covers all or part of your cervix (placenta previa). With placenta Previa. If the penis comes in contact with the cervix or you have contractions as a result of orgasm. It can traumatize the placenta and cause bleeding that's significant enough to endanger the pregnancy.You have vaginal bleeding. Your water has broken. Once this happens, your baby is no longer protected against infection. You have or have had premature ("preterm") labor. You have cervical insufficiency. I hope this information is helpful.
