A Guide To Sex During Pregnancy!
July 25, 2014
My friends wife got pregnant earlier in this year, and I have to say, he was quite depressed. Not because they were about to bring a child into the world (he couldn’t wait for that) but because he was rather worried his sex life was going to stop for the next seven months.
Low and behold, I get bladdered a few weeks ago and start asking him how things were going in the bedroom. They are now five months in, and it seemed a good enough time to ask as any!
Well, instead of turning round and punching me in the face for asking such a personal question, he said things were going great. Obviously he wasn’t going to go into intimate details, but he did recommend I look at some of the websites that give advice on what to expect.
Well, I did and I couldn’t believe how much information was out there. Well, I have decided out of the goodness of my heart to pass it on to you. Hopefully it comes in useful, or will come in useful in the future to a lot of you out there.
Don’t Get Pushy
OK, without getting hit with the sexist stick, we all know women can be a little moody and rather hormonal at times. Well, just remember that when she is pregnant, that will only get worse. She will likely have body image issues that leave her down, even if it is for a short space of time.
Make sure you don’t constantly pester her for sex, and if she says no, don’t sulk. You are likely to make the whole thing a bigger issue than it actually should be.
Be Careful on Positions
You don’t need me to tell you that there is a baby in there, so continually smashing up against the stomach whilst you are rutting away like a rabbit isn’t a good thing.
This means of course you have to adjust your positions. The positions you use will change during the three trimesters (three month blocks for anyone who has never had a pregnant Mrs, or who has and just doesn’t pay attention)
I am going to give you one position for each of the three trimesters. There are others, but these will at least be a good starting point.
You can use the ‘on the edge of missionary’ position here. Lie her on her back at the side or foot of the bed with her knees bent, and her feet perched at the edge of the mattress. Then can either kneel or stand in front of her.
The Second Trimester
At this point, move on to ‘the cowgirl’. This is basically the woman on top, and is good because she gets to control the pace and penetration, without any pressure being put on the abdomen.
The Third Trimester
‘Spooning’ is a great way to do it when she is rather large and you need to be extra careful. Lie on your side, with your knees bent while she lies on her side, with her back pressed against you, her legs slightly parted and her knees bent.
Times Not To Have Sex
If your doctor says that it isn’t a good idea, don’t do it. These guys and girls are trained to know what’s best for the mother and baby, so if they think there is something wrong (like the risk of a premature birth) listen to them.
Believe it or not, women get quite horny during pregnancy. Also, the sex feels better as there is more blood rushing towards their intimate area.
So don’t worry. Just like my mate who thought all his female companionship was going to come from the London escorts, but who is still having a great time with his wife, pregnancy certainly doesn’t mean an end to your sex life!
