Sex when your pregnant?

Did you find it to be better?
or
Were you never really turned on.
My mother told me when she was overdue with my brother, the doc told her to go home and have sex. I'm guessing to help with water breaking.
What do you think about that? or about the whole subject of sexual activity and, pregnancy.

I think it's fine and more people should be open to it. I hate to hear about wives or husbands that suddenly deem sex off limits just because there's a baby inside.

I knew one girl whose husband wouldn't even let her give a blowjob to completion because he swore the baby would eat the sperm. STUPID.

Anyway, I think it's best to ask the docs what kind of thrusting is appropriate for the type of pregancy one is having but I don't think it should be something that just becomes off limits. Granted, there are some women who are just so uncomfortable and sick all of the time it might be in their best interest to figure something else out for the time being but for those who are capable - GO FOR IT.

We thoroughly enjoyed sex during the times Mrs. Lust was pregnant with our two. It has now been many years, but it was actually a turn on for me to make love to her while she was pregnant. Very erotic and primal.

I found the orgasms during pregnancy amazing.

Women often have sex to stimulate labor, but not "break the waters." In fact, less than 10% of labors start with a broken bag of waters and most of those will have fetal distress. Most amniotic sacs break at or near full dilation. Unlike on TV, most labors END with a broken bag of waters (then of course the baby being born) not start with them.

But, yes, having an orgasm or the introduction of semen into the vagina will often cause uterine contractions. So much so that I wasn't supposed to "have sex" during my pregnancies, because I had preterm labor and contractions, starting at 12 weeks with all of them. We didn't stop having sex, but we did wait if I was contracting a lot. I also had to lie down after sex and take an aspirin to calm my uterus until about 34 weeks. (Aspirin is an antiprostaglandin and may quell contractions in some women. However, it should not be taken after the 34th week for fear of premature closure of the arterial ductus in the fetus.)

We enjoyed sex all through my pregnancies, although we had to be gentle or avoid it if I was contracting. Women who have low risk pregnancies don't need to really take any precautions as long as the pregnancy is going well.

My Man thought I was gorgeous while I was pregnant, too. And I felt beautiful. It gets difficult to position yourselves as your belly gets bigger and bigger, but there are ways. Most of my babies were born a little (2 to 4 weeks) early. The only baby I carried all the way to term was in danger of having to be induced (which, being a nurse and seeing the problems with Pitocin I didn't want) we had sex and I "took care of myself" several times a day, and I went into labor before we had to worry about induction.

We had sex all through both pregnancies. The Doc only told us to only do what felt comfortable, mostly we avoided deep penetration positions. After so many years of birth control and or condoms it was great not having to worry.

Towards the end the Doc told us to have sex to help her along, she also told us walking, going up and down stairs and four wheeling would help too. (might be why the kids love off roading so much. )

I find it harder to get to climax! I was told to have sex nothing seemed to help. They come when they come.

My sex drive (and mood) went up and down during pregnancy. Between weeks 6-12 when morning sickness is at it's worst, I didn't want to be touched.

Weeks 25-40 I was pretty much constantly horny and just one orgasm was never enough. Near the end, I would masturbate multiple times a day trying to get those contractions started, but it never worked for me. All four of my babies came after their due dates.

As far as the sex goes, I can't remember whether if it was better or the same as usual, but I squirted for the first time when I was pregnant with #2 and have been able to squirt ever since!

o ya its way more intense!And I always wanted sex..my libido didnt change,although towards the end of my pregnancy it hurt alittle and was uncomfortable position wise.We tried the having sex alot before due date to try to make him come faster..my son was born 5days early.I dont know if it helped but it was fun.Especially since you have to wait 6 weeks after you have the baby to have sex again(and then you probably wouldnt want it)

Well my good friend is pregnant right now and she's been extremely frustrated with her husband because he's honestly not wanting to have sex simply because it "feels weird" that she's pregnant... as in "the baby is inside, i don't want to!". He finally gave in I think... last week and it was great but he couldn't stay hard because it was so weird for him. So basically they are kind of failing at the whole sex during pregnancy thing.

On the other hand, my hubby is literally already excited about the whole idea even though I currently have the mirena IUD. Something about sex during pregnancy is hot to him... I'm guessing that it's the fact that at one point I will be lactating HAARDCORE.

I technically already do lactate on and off a little bit due to a hormonal imbalance. I can tell you he's right there sipping up every bit of milk I have whenever he can get it! lol. But basically, he sees no issue having sex when I'm pregnant unless it causes discomfort to me.

I was told my a Dr. that the mans sperm can induce labor. It didn't work for us. My wife had c-sections.
