It is obvious you want to have active sex life with your partner while those 9 months are passing by. To have such a long break would be quite a challenge, would not it? So is it really safe for you and your little one, will not it have any negative affect? If your doctor has not told you anything why you should not have sex while being pregnant, there is totally no reason at all why you should not or could not continue to enjoy having sex throughout your pregnancy. Being more careful and a little more gentle will not be any minus, but the pleasure itself will not bring any harm.
The early pregnancy days
Early in your pregnancy, you might have those morning sicknesses, sore boobs and general feelings of tiredness, so it may leave you totally wiped out and not feeling like wanting to have any sexy time with your other half. If you are worried about the effect this might have on your relationship, talk it through with your partner and take time out to find other ways to enjoy intimate, one on one time together. Perhaps some dinner or massage, if your partner would like why not to enjoy some spa time together?
Further days of the pregnancy
As your pregnancy progresses, it is quite probable you will find your sex drive return, but bump logistics will also surely get in the way of it. You and your other half might need to experiment a little just to find your comfortable positions to make love as the months go on and your tummy grows bigger. Maybe lying side by side, either with your partner behind you or with you both facing each other. You might also find penetration uncomfortable in some positions if your partner goes too deep inside you, so again, experimentation is the key to your happy love life. Point is, do your best to find the best way to do it.
Should you be afraid of any harm for the baby?
Some parents might feel uncomfortable about sex during pregnancy. But to be honest, there is no reason for that. You should know that the baby will not be aware of any actions you make with your partner in bed at all. There is no known risk to your baby from penetration and your partner will not be able to reach them while being inside you.
Can sex actually help bring on contractions?
If you are near your due date, sex could really help set off your contractions. Semen helps soften and ripen the cervix, so that is why sex would be a fun and a practical way to pass the time if you are overdue!
Just because of all your body niggles you might experience in your pregnancy, you might also want to talk with your doctor, just in case you experience any pain, soreness or have any bleeding or unusual discharge after having sex, just to be on the safe side. Anyways, calling a doctor for an advice will surely make a difference, either it will help you physically or will make you more calm and certain you are not doing anything wrong.
