Sex during pregnancy 101: all you need to know (i)

Being pregnant is uncharted territory for most couples and as exciting as it may be, you have so many questions about bedroom action. 
Will you be able to continue, what if you don't feel like it, what positions are best etc? There is no need to fret as your favorite moderator is here, to the rescue, to sort out your concerns one after the other. 
In this first installment of the series, we will be dealing with whether or not sex is safe during pregnancy.
According to Baby Center, sex during pregnancy is completely safe. You don't have anything to worry about, like whether or not your baby is getting poked. Your baby is secure in the amniotic fluid. Other sources say that the rocking motion could even lull your unborn baby to sleep! 
If you are also concerned that sperm could get through and affect your baby, you should know that the passage is usually sealed off to stop sperm from passing through. 
You should only avoid sex if you have a history of miscarriage or are experiencing vaginal bleeding. Your doctor will also advise you to avoid sex if you have had a vaginal infection, a history of cervical weakness or low-lying placenta. 
Yes, some people worry that having sex can bring on labour but this only happens if you are ready to deliver. Otherwise, you are good to go. 
Therefore, if you are up for sex then don't let fear hold you back. Give both yourself and your husband a treat. 
This series is going to get more exciting as we go. Stick around!
