Pregnancy is an exciting time in a woman's life, but it can also be a little scary!
One of the many things that can make pregnancy scary is the fear of having sex. You're pregnant, so you're worried that if you have sex, your baby will get hurt. But guess what? Your baby is actually pretty safe during sex.
In fact, having sex during pregnancy can actually help relieve stress and lower your blood pressure… which is good for both of you!
having sex during pregnancy can be a lot of fun. It can also help you and your partner bond and feel closer. But there are some things you should keep in mind if you want to get down and dirty while expecting.
Your body is going through a lot of changes, which means that sex will be different than it was before the baby bump started showing. Here are some things to keep in mind:
You may need more lubrication (like water-based lube) than normal because of vaginal dryness or because your hormones have changed during pregnancy. This will help prevent tearing or irritation for both partners.
If you're worried about hurting yourself or the baby during sex, try missionary position first (where both partners lie on their backs). It puts less pressure on the belly than doggy style does—and it's easier for most pregnant women
So go ahead and do it! It is perfectly safe providing you follow the basic rules while pregnant
