19 Weeks Pregnant: Helpful Tips for Parents

At about 19 weeks pregnant, many women wonder whether having sex will hurt their developing baby. The answer is no. Sex is considered safe at all stages of pregnancy as long as your pregnancy is normal.
 
That does not necessarily mean that you are going to want to have sex. Many expectant women find that their desire for sex fluctuates during the various stages of pregnancy, depending on their fatigue, growing size, anxiousness over the birth, and other body changes.
 
Keep the lines of communication with your partner open as these issues arise. Even though you may both be preoccupied with the baby, it is important to have some "together time" as well.
