Sex While Pregnant

Leave a Comment
From the name of the title you can already tell what this post is about, definitely something I don't see a lot of women talking about on social media at all. It has been all about the bump and the baby growth, but what about your partner. I mean he is the one who helped create the baby right? Sex is one of my favorite subjects to talk about, I like to joke and say I have the sex drive of a man and with all jokes aside I actually really do.

I have been married for 1 year but I wasn't a stranger to sex before marriage it was actually pretty hard not to pounce all over my now husband, Richard. Sex is definitely one of my favorite things to do. When I found out I was pregnant that was the first time I felt that my sex drive just wasn't there no matter how much I tried to talk myself into it. I felt pretty bad for my husband but he was completely understanding, and they way our relationship is set up, sex isn't what keeps us in love with each other but its definitely a plus.

My first trimester of pregnancy revealed itself to be pretty hard on my body. As expected because I have never been pregnant before. I was having crazy discharge that was either blood or old blood, cramping and at some point I tore my uterus because I was in the middle of moving and wasn't paying attention to my lifting. That caused me to bleed out a crazy amount of blood. With all of this happening I looked at my calendar and 3 months had already passed without sex. My doctor told me no sex for 3 weeks and then no sex for 2 more weeks, and after my episode of a torn uterus there was definitely no sex for a while.

As soon as I healed, I was headed into my 2nd trimester. I immediately felt that my sex drive was back and I was ready to get back to it. After not having sex in so long, it definitely wasn't what I expected and it honestly felt like I was was losing my virginity all over again. Once we got over that it was back to the action. I thought it would be weird and I hear some men are actually more resistant on sex because they feel like they may hurt the baby. The baby is protected and has no idea what is going on. It is very possible to have a normal sex life while pregnant. You may not be able to do it 3 or 4 times a day or week like you use to, but you don't have to go months without it.

When I started to feel the baby move I was the one a little hesitant about having sex, cause it is a bit weird. I am now 20 weeks and halfway through my pregnancy and I can honestly say my husband and I have have a regular sex life. People will tell you to enjoy it now cause when the baby comes there won't be any of that. Honestly I feel its all about your priorities, yes you will be sleepy and tired and have to give most and all of your attention to the baby, but don't ever forget about your husband, he has needs too. Don't forget about yourself cause if you are like me and have a hefty sex drive you will  need your needs met also. I plan on prioritizing and making sure I don't forget about US.

I have really enjoyed sex with my husband while pregnant, it is a really different connection you experience. I thought I may not feel as sexy as I did when I wasn't pregnant, but I am in love with my body right now and my husband seems to be even more attracted to my body as well which gives me a lot of extra confidence.

If you are scared to have sex I am here to tell you not to be, everyones experience is different, but  give it a try and I promise you wont be disappointed( because it feels AMAZING!). Take time to enjoy your body and love every part of it. Pregnancy is still sexy.

I hope you all enjoyed this post today and somehow this post has made you feel ready to dive into a active sex life again while pregnant, if you have any request or questions send me a email, tweet or comment below.  Have a amazing week and weekend. XOXO
