In brief: Sex while pregnant
There is no absolute answer. Sex in general is fine in a healthy pregnancy, but there are many circumstances where it is not recommended.
In cases with premature labor, low placenta or placenta previa, incompetent cervix, or threatened miscarriage just to name a few. Your OB can tell you if it is safe based on your pregnancy. Hope this helps you out.
