I didn't have a ton of pregnancy sex during my first two pregnancies. TBH, I thought it was terrible. I felt awkward, ashamed, and unattractive. Thankfully, that was not the case this time around. I did learn a lot about my relationships from the way my partners and I approached and engaged in pregnancy sex. As it turns out, there are things you can onlylearn about your relationship during pregnancy sex, at least it was true for me.
A little disclaimer: this is meant to be a fun exercise in relationship exploration. No one, pregnant or not, should be forced to do anything with their body that they don't want to. Ever. Also, at this point, I should probably warn my parents to stop reading.
Anyways, what did I learn about my relationships during pregnant sex?
First off, I learned is just how important sex was to me and my partner. Is it something you are willing to give up when you feel like crap or are told you have to by your obstetrics provider, or will that be a deal breaker? Also things like: are you creative, adaptable, and (perhaps literally) flexible in the bedroom, but also in your relationship with one another? Do you understand that people change and so do their likes, dislikes, turn-ons, and turn-offs? Is it more important to you to finish what you start or be understanding when things don't go as planned (which are pretty important skills for partners and parents if you think about it)?
Do you care more about your partner's pleasure or your own and what does that mean for your ability to compromise or change you mind. And when it comes to the bedroom (and life in general), are you a better listener or do you prefer to call the shots?
