The thing about having sex during pregnancy is that at some point, your go-to positions may start to feel awkward. Your ever-expanding belly, swollen feet and hands or the constant fatigue you’re dealing with aren’t exactly making you feel sexy or up for a roll in the hay.
On the other hand, all those hormones and excess blood your body is producing to support baby’s growth is also making your lady parts more sensitive than ever. Not to mention, well-lubricated as well. So, what’s a (horny) woman to do? Improvise, of course!
Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t have a healthy and robust sex life when you’re preggers. Unless your doctor thinks that intercourse could result in bleeding. In which case, any nookie is off the table until you get the greenlight!
Once you’re 20 weeks along, doctors will advise against positions that require you to lie flat on your back. If you’re supine, your enlarged uterus puts pressure on your aorta [main artery], which can compromise blood flow to the all-important placenta that is nourishing baby.
Otherwise, go for it! The key to having satisfying sex when you have a bun in the oven is to find positions that make you feel good and work at every stage of pregnancy. Here are our top eight “bump-friendly” sex positions that promise you and the hubs a really good time. Plus, it won’t poke the baby ― we promise!
