In brief: It's up to you
It is safe to have sex until the last few weeks of your pregnancy, if you do not have pre-term contractions, infections, or other problems.
Let how you feel guide your actions. Pay attention to your body and your mind, and see a doctor if you are having bleeding from your vagina, lots of cramping, or if you find yourself feeling down or unable to enjoy any of the things you did pre-pregnancy.

In brief: Not harmful
Generaly a woman can do anything during pregnancy, that she was doing before.
This would include sexual relations. Sex may cause some cramps or contractions, but it does not cause labor or preterm labor. There are occasions when sex is not recommended - including women with a history of an incompetent cervix, women with a placenta previa, and those with problems already with preterm labor.
