Pregnancy is actually an amazing time for sex. First off, you're not going to get pregnant again, at least not anytime soon, so you feel more uninhibited than ever. That, plus the fact that your hormones are raging and you suddenly and desperately want to have sex all the time makes it a great boning period in your life. And even if you do feel a little less flexible re: that new bump, you can still let loose and get your orgasm while making sure that your baby is completely fine. Here are some crazy-hot ways to do it that are percent pregnant-lady-approved.
There are many reasons why sex during pregnancy can be more enjoyable, even if you are doing it less. To begin with, there is an increase in vaginal lubrication, and the enlargement of the genital area sometimes helps people become orgasmic for the first time, and on some occasions, even multi-orgasmic. Secondly, the lack of birth control, or the return to sex as pleasure instead of procreation is also something that relaxes the mind, making intimacy pleasurable. Of course, there are also some reasons why people abstain from sex during this time. The main reasons are the fear of hurting the baby, nausea related to the pregnancy, fatigue, awkwardness with your body, pain, etc. While each of these reasons are completely valid, knowledge is power — talk to your partner, and also to your doctor — both of whom will be able to put you at ease and allow you to enjoy all the facets of being pregnant. Change is rampant during pregnancy both in your body and your beliefs.
