Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

well if you do have sex most likely you will go into labor soon. When I lost my mucus plug with my daughter  I went into labor about 12 hours later!
After losing the mucus plug I wouldn't have sex.  You are getting ready to deliver and would you really want to go into labor while having sex?  I would just hold off on the sex.  Plus you are right that is what prevents bacteria from getting to the baby.  I just don't advise it.  I hope that this helps.
