Best Sex Positions During Pregnancy

Many women find it uncomfortable to have sex further along in pregnancy. Here are a few suggestions to spice up your love life.

During pregnancy many things begin to affect your sex life. I have a 19 month old, and I am pregnant with my second child. I have discovered a few positions that will help ease the strain on your body. Some such strains include the obvious increase in abdomen size, insomnia, shortness of breath, back pain, heartburn, and just not feeling comfortable in your own skin.

Remember, although you may not feel beautiful, your body is transitioning to bring a beautiful baby into this world. Your partner will not think less of you because of your big baby bump, or at least they shouldn’t. During intercourse, the missionary position will become harder in the later months. If you decide this is the position you want to use, then be sure your partner is not putting weight on your abdomen, and use a pillow to wedge yourself up so you are not flat on your back.

Straddling your partner while he lies on his back is a great position to try during pregnancy, if you have not already done so. This provides you with complete control, and if you are uncomfortable you simply adjust youself. This also works with him sitting in a chair or on a couch.

Another great position to try is lying side by side, in the spooning position. This prevents deep penetration which becomes uncomfortable during the later months of pregnancy. Finally, the last position I would suggest is to kneel, and lean over onto your elbows. This allows entry from the rear, and no contact with your abdomen.

Remember, rough sex during pregnancy is NOT advised. If you suspect anything is wrong, or sex is too painful, be sure to talk to your doctor.

    I love having pregnant sex and so does my husband! By far the best is me on top and doggy style for comfort! Its also a fun time to try anal sex, although thats more of a novelty for us than a usual thing. I found my sex drive to be incredible and almost insatiable during the first two trimesters.

    I agree babybump. I’m pregnant with my second child, and I feel more intimate while pregnant. Also, my sex drive tends to hit the roof! Glad you enjoyed the article!
