As your bump, or abdomen, also with whole body grows larger, fattier and firmer, you may find getting into a comfortable position for sex more difficult. You will feel tired more sooner in doing sex. These positions may work and help as mood savers for your romantic evenings with your partner while you are still pregnant:
- If you take the top position, you ensure no weight is put on your bump while simultaneously giving you the most control of how deeply your partner penetrates you.
- Lying on your side with your partner spooning you will allow for shallow thrusts while keeping pressure off your abdomen.
- Lay on the edge of the bed while your partner stands or kneels on the floor in front of you to prevent your rounded stomach from becoming an obstacle.
- Oral sex is safe for both you and your partner, provided you are in a monogamous, HIV-free relationship or you use a dental dam.
Fully Enjoy your love life while you are still pregnant. Enjoy exploring the changes to your body and how they make you feel great, and think about the freedom from birth control you have, as this time will not come always. When the baby arrives, it may be several weeks before you feel recovered and rested enough to reengage in sexual activity, so take advantage of this newborn-free time.
