Is it okay to have sex when 7 months pregnant?

My baby is constantly moving around and kicking, would it be safe for my husband and I to keep having sex? Would it affect the baby at all?

That is a question to ask your OB/GYN but from my experience? As long as you are not having rough sex? The baby is in the uterus and protected by the natural surroundings of your body. If you are having a normal pregnancy without any complications it shouldn't be an issue having sex with your partner all the way up to delivery day. It's actually healthy to keep an active sex life during pregnancy. The muscle contractions will help with labor and the intensity of your contractions during delivery. Kind of like practicing for the delivery day!!! But I am not a doctor, just a mother of 3 healthy children all natural labors!!!!!
