31 Weeks Pregnant
Parents who are expecting multiple babies should make sure that they have chosen a pediatrician by week 31. Multiple babies tend to arrive slightly earlier than single babies.
In most cases, it is perfectly safe to have sex right up until the moment the mother goes into labor. However, not all pregnant women feel like having sex during the eighth month of pregnancy, just as not all men feel like having sex during this time either. Couples should talk about how they are feeling.
A woman should avoid intercourse if she has any of the following conditions:
- Risk for premature delivery
- Problems with the placenta (such as placenta previa or placenta accreta)
- Unexplained bleeding
- Ruptured membranes.
Couples who can't or don't want to have sex during this time should not stop engaging in other expressions of love, such as hand holding and kissing.
