Pregnant, had intercourse. Will sperm inside the body cause harm to the baby?

Hi I have to ask a silly question but....we recently had found out that im pregnant and my husband is concerned about sperm getting inside of me can be harmful or could touch the baby. I explained that the baby is in a sack and its not possible for it to reach the baby. Can you explain to him that its ok? Thank you so much.

There should not be any problem as far as semen getting inside after sex.
Once the pregnancy takes place,the cervix gets closed and gets relaxed only at the time of delivery.
The only way by which the foetus can be harmed is ,if the husband is suffering from STD,other wise there is no problem.
You can carry on with sex without fear.
