Sex and pregnancy?

Hey ladies, so this one's an intimate subject- literally. I'm now starting my 8th month of pregnancy and throughout my 2nd trimester I've definitely been in the mood more. However my husband seems to be unable to fathom having sex with a baby 'on board'. We have been active a couple times when i was smaller but now it's a bit tricky and he isn't comfortable with feeling the baby move or isn't able to condition his mind around it. Has anyone else been in a similar situation? Also is it really true sex in your lst trimester can help with labour and prevent tears?

    I dn't know about preventing tears but I've heard it can help move labor along when you're close to the end. It wouldn't cause someone to go into labor early, though.

    Perineal stretching will help prevent tearing and episiotomy and that is worth doing.

    Sex during pregnancy is not a problem in normal cases. As long as there is no problem in the manner your pregnancy is proceeding. You can have sex as much as you wish to. During the first trimester. There will be immense hormonal fluctuations along with nausea and persistent tiredness. These factors might cap your desires for a while. But by the second trimester there will be an enhanced blood flow in your breasts and sexual organs which will revive your desire for sex. The third trimester is marked by a fair amount of weight gain along with an array of other symptoms. Like back ache which might not make you feel like making love that often. But if there are absolutely no complications in your pregnancy and you are in a mood for some action. There is no harm to you or your baby if you indulge in sex. And all the best in your pregnancy. I do hope that it will be an easy ride for you.

    Sex during pregnancy is the absolute last thing on some women’s minds, especially when they are dealing with nausea, vomiting, and overwhelming fatigue. Other women, however, may crave sex in pregnancy. And men, too, are split into different camps regarding sex during pregnancy. Some men may find nothing sexier than a pregnant woman, but other men may be too afraid of hurting the baby or their pregnant partner to enjoy sex. The third trimester can be risky for some women in certain situations, so you should talk to your doctor to make sure sex is OK during your final weeks. Some doctors believe that during the last few weeks, sex could rupture the membranes. You should not have sex if your water leaks or breaks, you have vaginal bleeding, itching or discharge, pain in your abdomen or in your vagina or if you start to feel contractions. If you have a history of preterm labor or placenta Previa, you should discuss with your doctor if having sex will be safe for you.

    Most women who are having a normal pregnancy may continue to have sex right up until their water breaks or they go into labor. There are some circumstances, though, in which you may need to modify your activity or abstain from sex altogether for part or all of your pregnancy. Your midwife or doctor should let you know whether you have or develop any complications that make sex a no-go. If you're uncertain, ask your practitioner. As long as your pregnancy is proceeding normally. You can have sex as often as you like. However, hormonal fluctuations, fatigue, nausea and breast tenderness early in pregnancy might lower your sexual desire. As your pregnancy progresses, weight gain, back pain and other symptoms might dampen your enthusiasm for sex. Share your needs and concerns with your partner in an open and loving way. If sex is difficult, unappealing or off-limits, try another type of contact such as cuddling, kissing or massage.
