If you're newly preggers you may be wondering what the next nine (or ten) months of sex will be like. Sex is not always an easy topic to bring up with your midwife or doctor and sometimes not even with your partner, but sex is something that most pregnant women I've known think about and have questions about. With the above in mind, WebMD recently posted some new research that reveals what pregnant women really think about pregnancy sex and some of the thoughts may surprise you. For example a full "Quarter of the women surveyed had feared that vaginal intercourse would harm their baby, but only three of the women ended up postponing intercourse until their babies were born. Two of these three women engaged in other forms of sexual activity." This is normal but not necessary - to fear sex during pregnancy. Unless you have a special health concern (i.e. placenta previa or cervical incompetence) you can safely have sex throughout pregnancy. "Frequency of sexual activity did not drop off for most women until their third trimester, although about 10% said they had sex more often during their third trimester than during their first or second." This is common because finding a sex position that works with your hugely growing belly is difficult - but not impossible. "41.5% of the women said they felt less attractive or sensual while pregnant. Yet, 75% said their partners did not find them any less desirable." Almost all guys I've talked to DO find their partner super sexy during pregnancy. However, it's true, when you're preggers it's easy to feel all chubby and unattractive. To ease these feelings try talking to your partner, take the time to make yourself feel better (spa day!), wear a sexy maternity dress, or plan a fun babymoon that will relax your body and mind.
