Sex and Pregnancy

coupleMost couples experience changes in their intimate and sexual relationships during pregnancy. Some women feel ill during the first trimester and some feel ill throughout the entire pregnancy. Some women feel great by the second trimester find that they have an insatiable appetite for sex. Still others find the whole idea a big turn off for the entire nine months. As every woman is different, every pregnancy is as well. Some men find the changes in a woman’s body very attractive during pregnancy. Others may be afraid of myths or turned off by their spouse’s appearance. All of these feelings are perfectly normal. There are some things you can do to help keep your relationship on track.

   -   In most cases, it is perfectly okay to engage in normal sexual activities, so relax and enjoy.
   -   Remember that even though you may not be interested in intercourse during times of discomfort, cuddling and touching keeps you intimate with your partner.
   -   Hormones are raging during pregnancy, especially in the first trimester. Keep in mind that you may be more apt to argue about things that you normally wouldn't.
   -   Pregnancy can be a stressful time for both of you. Many men worry about supporting a family and being a good father. Women tend to wonder about motherhood and the health of their baby. Take the time to be together. Go out, have fun, take long walks, and nurture your relationship.
   -   Talk about your feelings with one another. The more you talk, the closer you'll feel.
   -   Take child birth classes together.

Remember, the whole idea when it comes to sex is intimacy and enjoyment. If you or your partner are physically or emotionally uncomfortable, finding ways to accommodate one another will only bring you closer.
