Pregnancy and sex?

Ok... I think some ladies can relate to me when I say since I have gotten preggo and over the morning sickness, my libido has gone through the roof! I am 24 weeks, and I want it more than ever... BUT there's a problem. Since I have started showing more and the baby is moving lots to where you can see it from the outside, my husband is freaking out about sex... And I NEED it! He said he "feels weird having sex with the baby in the mix of all the action". It's driving me crazy! I try to keep busy and wear myself out cleaning and excersizing all day, but I still want it, but he's totally turned off, but nothing satisifes me but him... I've tried to explain that it's prefecly natural and safe and there's nothing wrong with having sex right now. Doesn't help. He's still weird about it.... Has any of your partners been weird about it like this?

It's perfectly normal for your sex drive to increase while your fact its common. But why not try a different position maybe, that way he can focus on other aspects of your body. Use lots of pillows for your comfort, and if worse comes to worse, you can always tie him up and blind fold me he will thank you later!

It scard my husband because I was a high risk pregnancy. I made him go to a doctors appointment with me and I asked the doctor if it would be ok. After he heard it from the doctor he was okay with it.
