I won't lie, it's difficult to figure out just what my child is thinking. After all, even as a 2-year-old toddler, he has a limited vocabulary and "real" words are mixed in with the mumbo jumbo that is toddler talk. Still, I'm pretty good at guessing because I know him better than most. So, when I think back on pregnancy, labor, delivery and his newborn life, I find myself assuming what he may or may not have been surmising. As a result, I'm pretty confident there are things your baby is thinking during pregnancy sex; things that are going to be kind of odd to even contemplate, but at least give you a decent laugh; things that definitely didn't stop me from getting busy while I was pregnant, and shouldn't stop you (if you are in the mood and want to get it on), either.
Again, these are just assumptions and are more a reflection of who I am as an individual than an accurate representation of what any growing baby may or may not be thinking. There's no way to know because, well, science has been too busy focusing on creating a pill that enables men to have erections than figuring out a way to capture the thoughts and feelings of a fetus. Thanks, science. So, all I have are guesses, pulled from the parts of my brain that think about such things when I'm up in the middle of the night with a sick kid, or just waxing nostalgically about pregnancy sex and how good (but very, vey awkward and sort of weird and somewhat uncomfortable) it was.
Pregnancy can be scary enough as it is, so why not add a little fun by trying to guess what it is that growing eggplant-sized-baby of yours is thinking, right? I know that when I was in the throes of my pregnancy — scared, confused, constipated, nauseous and, you know, not having any fun — wondering what my baby was thinking or feeling took the edge off, if only for a relatively short amount of time. So, with that in mind and because guessing is fun, here are just a few things your baby is thinking when you're getting it on, pregnancy style.
