In brief: Yes

If you're in well established monogamous relationship then no need.
But if there are other sex partners involved then absolutely insist all of them wear condoms. Also let your OB know so they can screen for stds, some of which can be passed to newborn.

In brief: Yes

The safest sex is sex with a single partner who has no other partners but you.
If this is not your situation, then condoms are very important, as this will greatly reduce the chances of getting a sexually transmitted infection (sti). Some stis can harm the baby as well as you, so it is even more important to protect yourself when both you and your baby are at risk.

In brief: Yes

While you cannot get pregnant once you are pregnant, you can contract stds so you should practice safe sex if there is an issue with contracting any stds.
