What is it like to have sex while pregnant?
A lot of people have mixed opinions on the experience.
Some say it’s amazing, some say it’s terrible. The point is, it’s pretty much like regular sex, but it’s different for everyone. These 13 women describe the intimate experience and the issues they had.
While there are no universals, there are a lot of common themes. The women have not released their last names. Lets see:
1. Melissa said that sex is “Much better by myself!
Having a belly in the way and legs needing to be lifted in certain positions is challenging. And when the baby is taking up lung space, just having the ability to breathe while doing the deed was a challenge.
“I felt like my insides were at max capacity and that there wasn’t even room for a pinky finger to fit! Very uncomfortable. Needless to say, we rarely had sex whenever I was pregnant.”
“Sex was so much better for me while pregnant! I wanted it all the time, once I got past the constant sickness.”
“Best sex of my life. The last pregnancy sex I had resulted in the break of my water roughly four hours later.”
“We actually really enjoyed pregnant sex, even with twins…we had sex up until the week I delivered both pregnancies.”
“Unthinkable. I was so sick and uncomfortable and exhausted. During two pregnancies we had sex maybe three times total? I felt terrible for my husband, but not terrible enough to have sex! Besides, I had awesome pregnant sex dreams.”
“Awkward, sweaty, smelly, awkward.”
“Getting past the sick stage was key, because I didn’t want anything near me, let alone near me down there.”
“All business. Uncomfortable quickies or due date sex to try and evict the little human.”
“I thought it was going to be so, so awesome (I happen to think pregnant women are really sexy and so does my partner) but it was awkward and uncomfortable. When my partner went down on me it was really unsettling, because I couldn’t see their head.”
“I’m sure the further along I get it will become more of a challenge, as I remember just not being interested towards the end with our first. For now though, all good!”
“Propped up on pillows, O’s better than usual, difficulty breathing later on, and used as an eviction method.”
“I actually took a pregnancy test because sex the previous night felt so terrible and a friend suggested maybe I was pregnant. She was right. That was the last time I actually completed a sex act until weeks after my baby was born. It’s not an entirely sad story, though, because nowadays I’m having the best sex of my life (and I’ve had a lot of sex). It’s like the Universe was like, ‘Sorry. I owe you one.'”
Seems like there are only a handful of obstacles when having sex while you are pregnant, the sickness, the belly and etc,. Have you had any experiences like these?
