How to Have Some Sexy Time when Pregnant

While writing this, I can’t help but think about that comedy Knocked Up and how Seth Rogen’s character was just too terrified to have sex since he might hurt the baby. Despite all the information about sex and pregnancy, that fear still persists.

For the sake of couples who want to have sex, let’s get the truth out: it’s perfectly okay to have sex and definitely normal to want it. In fact, a lot of women feel the need of sex when they’re pregnant, all thanks to the raging abnormal hormones. Let’s not forget that pregnancy gives you bigger breasts, so you feel sexier.

But how do you have sex?

When is the best time to have sex?

There’s actually no best time, as anytime is possible! Women can have sex even until their ninth month or even if they’re nearing labor or delivery. But there are times when sex is more amazing. Normally it happens during the second trimester. By then, they have already gone past the morning sickness phase and have already adjusted to the idea of being pregnant. Their tummies are also not that big to get in the way when having sex.

Perhaps you’re thinking, “Okay, but doesn’t sex harm the baby?” The answer is a huge no. Babies are well protected by their sac and your uterus. Moreover, the body has a wonderful way of sealing the baby. But do note that sex may not be recommended in high-risk pregnancy. When in doubt, always ask your doctor.

What is the best position?

It all depends on what makes you feel comfortable and, most of all, satisfying. Many couples go for spooning and sex from behind. There are still others who go for the classic missionary position, but later, this position may cause some discomfort for women.

Women are usually not advised to spend more time lying on their back especially when they’re already nearing their third time. The growing uterus can put a lot of pressure on the blood vessels on the back, causing so much pain. Men should be advised never to blow air right into the vagina. Of course, oral sex is perfectly fine for any pregnant couple.

What are other ways to have more fun time while being pregnant:

Try out different positions. You can go for doggy position or lie on the side to give him some good penetration. You can even make love while sitting!

Role-play. Role playing is one of the most incredible things you can do to spice up your sex life while pregnant. You can be a pregnant nurse, pregnant pirate, or any other character you want to be! Lengthen the foreplay so you can maximize your alone time together.

Enjoy some honeymoon. There’s such a thing as a baby-moon, which is just a honeymoon before the baby is born. I suggest you take it because who once you have a baby, holidays and alone times may not come as often as you’d like them to be.
