Pregnancy By Months And Sex During Pregnancy

Often moms-to-be and dads-to-be are confused about pregnancy by months and sex during pregnancy and whether it is safe to have sex during pregnancy. Sexual relationship is normal and healthy part of a committed relationship but lots of moms-to-be find the idea of having sexual intercourse during the gestational period as embarrassing and disturbing. This happens mainly due to a wrong perception of their bodies and also because the sexual desire usually decreases during the first trimester.

Pregnancy By Months And Sex During Pregnancy

Can sex during pregnancy cause a miscarriage?

Many couples worry that sex during pregnancy will cause a miscarriage, especially in the first trimester. But sex isn’t a concern. Early miscarriages are usually related to chromosomal abnormalities or other problems in the developing baby — not to anything you do or don’t do.

Does sex during pregnancy harm the baby?

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.

What are the best sexual positions during pregnancy?

As long as you’re comfortable, most sexual positions are OK during pregnancy. As your pregnancy progresses, experiment to find what works best. Rather than lying on your back, you might want to lie next to your partner sideways or position yourself on top of your partner or in front of your partner. Let your creativity take over, as long as you keep mutual pleasure and comfort in mind.

Don’t worry if you experience decrease in sexual desire in the first months, hormonal fluctuations are responsible for that and not your feelings for your partner. You’ll most probably want to make love again during the second trimester as your body will feel less tensed and tired.

Unless your health care provider advises you otherwise, pregnancy by months and sex during pregnancy is safe for both you and your baby. The baby is protected by the amniotic fluid in the womb, by your abdomen, and by the mucus plug which seals your cervix and helps guard against infections. Talk to your partner and share your feelings with him, you can surely find a way to make the last trimester pass easier and be as enjoyable as possible.
