Just kind of wondering if anyone else is/was just completely uncomfortable having sex pregnant or while pregnant? Any positions that are interesting? NOT PAINFUL but good enough to keep "HIM" happy.... PLZ HELP!!

Mine was definitely doggy-style! I was able to bend down and get comfy with the pillows, the baby wasn't putting any pressure on anything because she was just hanging out, lol. Plus my husband LOVES the extra cushion I have during pregnancy.

It's going to be different for each of us, and it changes throughout pregnancy, often in relation to how and where that baby is laying. For me, after about 33 weeks, doggy style was about the only way I enjoyed it. And, since I was a professional hurler, it was the one position where I didn't' have to worry that I would suddenly barf all over the hubby
(a definite mood-breaker). It never actually happened, but at that point, it took almost nothing to set me off (I was beyond sensitive to any and all smells - my shampoo often made me hurl while showering) and I wasn't taking any chances!

Is it bad that I don't remember? I left my ex when I was 5 weeks pregnant with our second child, and I spent most of my first pregnancy being pissed off at him. I think we went the spooning route. Hard to remember, that was nearly 5 years ago.

spooning is the best way I found although it isn't painful, it's still enjoyable @ 8 months pregnant. Hell, lets face it, NOTHING is enjoyable right now.

Lol yes tah I had sex why you acting so surprised! Anyway I forgot one it was like modified missionary, put a pillow under my bum to prop me up and the angle helped relieve some of the pressure that missonary usually put on me, couldn't do it when my heartburn was really bad though so we only did that during the day when aiden was at daycare.

in my opnion the best sex position was when i laid on my back and he was beside at a 45 degree angle and his side. put one leg between his and the other on top, it's very comfortable. also, while that is going on have him rub your clit..feels very great =]

Well when I was preggers with the twins all positions worked for us except missionary. We had sex up til about 7 months then after that it was blow jobs and hand jobs mostly and sex when I felt up to it. I really don't know how I was even able to have sex I was fucking GINORMOUS!

Ooh Kaleigh it's definitely possible that sex helped you go into labor! Sperm helps to soften the cervix, and the action alone has been known to help get things moving along in many cases! A friend of mine would more or less attack her husband every chance she could by the end of her 3rd pregnancy lol. She didn't even really enjoy sex at that point, simply due to her discomfort outweighing the pleasure, but she did go into labor right after a good little session! Could be coincidence, but it's happened to many people. Go hubby!! lol

With my first I was good up until the 7th month. At that point missionary got to be uncomfortable just due to pressure on my belly - with all of my organs pushing on my lungs, when my hubby added his weight it was like I couldn't breath. Me being on top was a no-go. I felt so self concious and disgusting, I just couldn't get into it. He really enjoyed it so sometimes I would do it just for him, but it was difficult.

The best positions I think were "99" - the position where you lay on your side and he spoons you from behind? That and standing doggy. I could lean on the bed to support myself and my extra weight, and he had a wide range of motion to do what needed to be done lol.

Sex throughout the entire duration of pregnancy can get tricky, but it's more than doable so long as you're both open minded, creative, and especially so long as there's no complications with the pregnancy. I hope you find something that's fun for both of you!!!

RE: Keeping "HIM" happy.

I've found that inserting a penis in any snug warm area pretty much keeps him happy.

I will probably never again be able to have sex 2 days in a row....more like every 3-4 days. How terrible is that?

I am FIANLLY getting my sex drive back. I did not heal well, actually, my sutures fell out too soon and I was flapping in the breeze. They could not resuture, so I had to heal naturally....I think it caused more scar tissue, which hurts. I am finally not wincing everytime we have sex....just after.

On my side over the side of the bed was most comfy for me. He held my one leg and other i put on his shoulder. Spoon sex was good too. I mean, it was all good. Jsut least comfy for me was doggie style. Standing up even wasn't so bad since he kinda held me up. Like one leg on the side of hte tub kinda standing. I don't remember positions as much as we had a lot of sex and least comfy for me was doggie.

I was so uncomfortable during sex, I had seperated symphysis pubis, and varicose veins...plus major swelling. I literally couldn't' separate my legs. We did not have sex for most of my pregnancy due to pain.

Same here and being on top worked for a while for me because of my back pain, but on the side was the easiest right up until delivery. Doggystyle was what actually put me into labour (I still don't think thats what did it but my hunni swears it wasn't a coincidence)
