Are you sure they weren't trying to tell to stay away from it from now on, since you *do* have preterm labour issues?
Not sure, because this was before we knew I was contracting for sure and before I was hooked up to the machines. They asked if I'd had sex and I said no and they all murmured and said to avoid sex during pregnancy, because it causes preterm labor.
I went in with contractions 4 minutes apart and they were able to stop them fairly quickly once I was hydrated. So I'm guessing it was due to being dehydrated? I'm so lucky I never dilated. However my boyfriend is coming to see me this week, and I'd rather NOT have to avoid sex. So I was just checking on the validity of the idea that sex is bad bad bad. The nurses when I went in were acting like it was the devil, lol. And that was before we knew I was contracting.
