When you’re expecting, the best sex pregnancy positions are the one where you are the most physically comfortable. That will vary throughout the nine months of pregnancy, depending on factors such as breast tenderness, your libido and yes, the size of your burgeoning belly. Some couples are afraid of hurting the baby during sex, but according to reputable sources including BabyCenter.com unless your doctor warns you against it for a particular medical reason, you may have sex until the day you give birth if you´re up to it. With that in mind, here’s an overview of the best positions for pregnancy.
Tune in to how your body feels. Some women have extreme breast tenderness during the first trimester. Let your partner know exactly how you feel when he is touching you and don´t be scared to tell him what is uncomfortable. Your body is changing and he may feel a bit lost, so he needs guidance. Talk to him about sex. That will put both of you at ease. If you are not in the mood for intercourse you may choose to perform oral sex instead and then ask him to hold you and cuddle you if that´s what you´re craving. Any position you’re accustomed to or particularly enjoy is safe during this trimester.
You don´t need to worry about crushing the baby, but if you are uncomfortable on your back, then you can both lie in the spooning position. Lie down on your left side and have your partner snuggle up to you and press his chest to your back. This leaves his hands free to caress your breasts if they are less tender than in the first trimester, and to massage your clitoris. Let him be the one who finds the entry position for intercourse that gives you the most pleasure. Yes, you may also have anal sex if you are in the mood for it. The second trimester is a good one for sex, since you are usually over your morning sickness and your belly still isn’t so big that it gets in the way.
Sex is still safe – again, unless your doctor has cautioned you against it – but your larger belly may feel cumbersome. Some women find it harder to get in the mood for sex when they can feel the baby kicking. However, know that when you are active physically, the baby tends to quiet down. One of the easiest pregnancy positions for both during this trimester is the rear-entry position, with you on all fours and your partner penetrating your vagina from behind. Another easy and pleasurable position is with you straddling him as he lies on his back. That way you are in full control of his penetration. The moves are on you, while he gets a full frontal view. This is the trimester during which you will most likely orgasm more easily, so enjoy it!
