Sperm is typically considered safe for pregnant women and babies. That said, check with your doctor if you have any questions about the overall safety of sex due to any risk factors associated with your pregnancy.

Experts believe sperm might be able to prevent preeclampsia and cure morning sickness. You might know some of the advantages of pregnancy sex: lowered blood pressure, improved sleep, increased intimacy with your partner.
Which sperm is good for pregnancy?
Quantity. Youre most likely to be fertile if your ejaculate — the semen discharged in a single ejaculation — contains at least 15 million sperm per milliliter. Too little sperm in an ejaculation might make it more difficult to get pregnant because there are fewer candidates available to fertilize the egg.
Where does sperm go when pregnant?
Once the sperm have entered the uterus, contractions propel the sperm upward into the fallopian tubes. The first sperm enter the tubes minutes after ejaculation. The first sperm, however, are likely not the fertilizing sperm. Motile sperm can survive in the female reproductive tract for up to 5 days.
