Hi Zulunpatrick

Yes, you can absolutely have sex with her. Sex (as long as there are no medical or health issues related to either mom or baby) is fine up to labor, as long as the woman is ok and comfortable with it!

Is heartburn a common ailment for your wife? Or is it pregnancy related? Most women don't experience it until at least the second trimester but I know it's very, very painful for many women. Her doctor can talk to her about a heartburn medication that's safe in pregnancy and I'm sure she knows to avoid spicy or acidic foods that contribute to it.

Congrats on the pregnancy!
