Brief Answer:
You can do it with extra precautions.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
As such if pregnancy is normal you can do sex with some extra precautions during pregnancy.
Use of condom is must.
If she is having pain you can use condom with lubrication, it will be helpful in your case.
But if pain is persistent, you should avoid it because sexual intercourse may cause uterine contraction.
Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.
Regards
