Sexual activity usually slows down during the last 2 weeks of a full term pregnancy and if the child is born via the vaginal canal, then you can expect a period of pelvic rest...4-6 weeks.

How late in a pregnancy can a woman safely fly?

How late in a pregnancy can a woman safely fly?

6 months: I don't recommend pregnant women fly after the second trimester. Changes in air pressure can sometimes trigger labor . More importantly, some airlines will not allow women to board after the 6th month for fear of them going into labor or having other problems that would force them to have to make an emergency landing. Unless absolutely necessary, avoid flying after the 6th month.
