Being pregnant doesn’t have to end your sex life for the next 9 months. Sex during pregnancy is great, as long as your doctor has given you the thumbs up. Married couples can continue to enjoy one another during this special season. Now, this is not meant to be medical advice but pleasure advice, from one wife to another.
Here are 6 reasons to keep doing what you do:
Doctor Says It’s Okay
Your doctor has given you the okay. As long as medical reasons don’t prevent you from making love with your spouse, go for it.
Your and your husband’s body still have a strong desire to be together. Your sex drive doesn’t stop because you’re pregnant. Many times, it’s heightened. So, somewhere between feeling tired, morning sickness, and feeling bloated, go ahead and do what you do with your mate.
Time of Discovery
This is a great time to discover something new. Experiment and have fun. You will need to change things up from trimester to trimester. Work together to make this a pleasurable and comfortable time. If something doesn’t work, laugh it off and try something else.
Pregnancy can cause extra tension. Emotional ups and downs due to hormones can cause unwanted stress. Husbands and wives may face challenging thoughts like will I be a good parent? How will we pay for everything? These thoughts can breed tension.
Sexual intercourse can relieve tension for both mates. What better way to relieve stress than by being together? Tension will be relieved and you may even sleep a little better.
Times of intimacy and sexual intercourse can help draw you and your spouse closer and closer together, deepening your bond. You will need to draw from these experiences after the baby arrives.
Once the baby arrives, your time for intimacy will be shortened temporarily as your newborn will require much of your attention. Before baby arrives, remain full to overflowing in the intimacy department. You will be glad you did later.
Freedom – No Need for Contraceptives
You’re already pregnant. There is a natural sense of freedom to be enjoyed during pregnancy sex. No pills to remember, nothing to grab from the side drawer – it’s just you and your Boo. There’s not much more to be said; enjoy it while it lasts.
Things will change as your belly grows. Be creative to find a position that is comfortable and pleasing to you and your mate. Enjoy the time of discovery. Enjoy the freedom.
