Is having sex with someone who's pregnant bad for the baby or good for the baby?

In brief: Sex/pregnancy

Sex is usually not a problem in pregnancy.
Some pregnant women actually have an increased libido. Certain conditions like placenta previa and incompetent cervix do better without sexual intercourse. The baby is not affected by sex.
