Sex Life During Pregnancy?
According to Baby Centre, sex during pregnancy may help prevent premature births. Also, being free from worrying about getting pregnant can improve your experience! To parents who are concerned they will hurt their baby:
“You won’t hurt your baby by making love, even with your partner on top. The thick mucus plug that seals your cervix helps guard against infection. The amniotic sac and the strong muscles of your womb (uterus) also protect your baby.” ~Baby Centre
What To Expect says that when it comes to making love while pregnant, proceed with caution! This is not because of a risk to the baby but mom may be feeling a bit touchy (and not in a good way), especially towards the end. Her hormones are fluctuating and what she once loved may not fly anymore. Keeping open communication between partners is essential to sex during pregnancy.
From that growing belly to nausea and fatigue, pregnancy problems can abound. Here are some words of encouragement from What To Expect:
“…don’t let common pregnancy sex problems get you down — it’s as important as ever to keep your bond strong before your bundle of joy arrives.” ~What To Expect
