I’ve not had a complete pregnancy, so I haven’t been through this. But I just wanted to say reading the line where you both felt the baby moving and it felt like the three of you were having sex made me cringe up a bit. I can completely understand why you’d feel that way! The good thing is I’m sure many couples go through this. And the even BETTER news is your pregnancy won’t last forever. I’m sure once the baby arrives and you heal up you and your husband will get back into the swing of things. ๐Ÿ™‚

kmark2688:  i am 6 months along and I find it uncomfortable to be on top because of the extra weight! we have quite a few other positions that we can use that are still pleasurable. 

so i get it, im sure once im biggER it will get to an awkward point but hey, i still need it. lol

I’m sure you are not the only one…My friend told me while she was pregnant her and her Fiance never had sex…she said earlier in her pregnancy she was always so tired and simply had no sex drive, and then as the pregnancy progressed she felt better, but like you said, feeling the baby move freaked her out.  Basically her Fiance went without for the entire time she was pregnant. lol

kmark2688:  I’m 35 weeks, now. I swear our sex was fine until the past couple of weeks and I just cannot find a satisfying position. So I get frustrated and then it breaks the mood, and now I just don’t want to have sex and risk getting angry because I just can’t do it comfortably.

Um no, not a fan of pregnant sex in the 3rd trimester.  Nothing was comfortable.  Just no.  We tried the last few weeks hoping I would go into labor (didn’t work) and it wasn’t fun (for me, I guess it was fine for him lol).  And the women who are raring to go 1 mo post partum are freaks IMO (sorry )

kmark2688:  my husband is hoping I get past it before the baby comes. He’s not looking forward to the post partum no sex, and he finds my pregnant body really sexy. I just wish I could find a position that the belly doesn’t get in the way and is comfortable so that we can both go into post partum satisfied.

kmark2688:  Aw, well see! You have nothing to worry about. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sure it will seem longer than it is but soon enough you won’t be sharing your body with someone else and it can be just the two of you again. ๐Ÿ™‚ In the meantime I think it’s awesome you guys are still intimate in other ways and that’s what is truly important!

I remember those days. This may be Too Much Information, but the spooning position worked really well for keeping the belly out of the way. I remember many times ending in giggles trying to figure how to work about my beach ball. Lol.

Im only 19 weeks and not showing much but sex has certainly been interesting! There have been a couple of times when we’ve been in the middle of it and I’ve suddenly started feeling unwell (not sick but just pain in side or legs etc.) and its been near the end so stopping hasnt been an option!

I also now find spooning sex really uncomfortable, which is annoying, because its the one they recommend for when you’re too big! At the moment it’s not much of an issue but who knows later on.

Spoons is defo saving us from months of frustration. We have replaced active Olympic sex with nice cuddly slow version too. ๐Ÿ™‚
