In brief: Discuss with doctor

In a normal pregnancy sexual activity is perfectly acceptable and encouraged.
With certain conditions though avoiding intercourse is safest. You should discuss this with your doctor. Some conditions would include preterm labor, incompetent cervix, placenta previa, threatened miscarriage, vaginal bleeding, presence of a cerclage and certain infections.
