As long as your pregnancy is proceeding normally, you can have sex as often as you like..
avoid sex if:
You have unexplained vaginal bleeding
You're leaking amniotic fluid
Your cervix begins to open prematurely (cervical incompetence)
Your placenta partly or completely covers your cervical opening (placenta previa)
You have a history of preterm labor or premature birth
You're carrying multiples
