You can read everything there is to know about having sex with your pregnant partner (and I have), but that doesn't change the fact that she just might not want to do the wild thing! Guys, if you get to make whoopie during the first trimester, consider yourself lucky. Typically, this is the time of nausea, bloating and emotional breakdowns due to hormones on the fritz. Is it weird that all of the above are making me want sex even more? For both partners, pregnancy can actually strengthen ones intimate connection with each other. I've already found myself swooning over my wife and feeling more emotionally and sexually connected, each and every breakfast I make for her.
It's still the first trimester and my wife is battling nausea everyday, so bringing up the fact that I want more intimacy (anything past 1st or 2nd base) could end up starting an argument. Fortunately, I'm a smooth talker;). Guys, be very cautious and approach this very nonchalantly. Remember, first and foremost, we need to be patient, loving, kind, supportive, helpful, accepting, attentive, positive, caring and did I say patient? This territory is similar to talking to your wife about exercising. Chances are, your wife has thought about the whole sex thing and most likely feels bad that she hasn't been in the mood. Do you blame her? So, no matter what she says, just agree and be supportive...and know that the 2nd trimester is right around the corner!
From what I here, the second trimester brings out the playmate or Jenna Jamison in your pregnant partner. If not, email me and I'll give you a couple of good websites (that I've only heard about) to keep you busy. During the third trimester, things tend to slow down a bit due to the uncomfortable nature of the belly and all. Learn more about good pregnant sex positions on www.parents.org.
Ask Dr. Whoopsie
Is sex with a pregnant chick safe?
Yes, as long as your pregnancy is not high-risk (ask your real Dr.).Your developing baby is protected by the amniotic fluid in your uterus, as well as the mucous plug that blocks the cervix throughout most of your pregnancy. Sexual activity won't affect your baby. Guys, not matter how big you think your one-eyed-willy is, you're not going to touch or poke the baby with it.
Can having an orgasm harm my baby?If you've ever questioned your own lack of intelligence, read on. There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people that ask them. You've gotta love the sarcastic (I think) reply. See below.
No, they are actually good for both you and your baby. Your baby is oblivious to you having sex or an orgasm, but he will experience the rush of happy hormones. He’ll also be soothed by the gentle contractions of your uterus. Some women even experience their first multiple orgasms during pregnant sex as raised hormone levels may make it easier for you to climax. Ladies, did you hear that? You might actually have not only your first real orgasm, but multiple!
As the bond between you and your partner grows, sex during pregnancy tends to be more fulfilling. But, like any guy, I'm looking at the due date on the calendar and thinking, will I ever have sex again after that day?
