It's nothing new and it's far from ground-breaking, but pregnancy sex can be weird. Body changes and a growing belly and hormonal fluctuations can make what was once easy and comfortable, difficult and awkward. There are logistics that can ensure pregnancy sex is safe, that can they also create additional road blocks that make pregnancy sex, well, strange. Pregnancy sex can also be amazing, though, and there are things about pregnancy sex you'll end up missing, believe it or not.
While some women experience a "dry spell" during pregnancy, thanks to hormones and fatigue and constant nausea, others say that pregnancy sex is the best sex they've ever had. Their libido is heightened and they're trying new things with their partner and they're feeling passionate and connected in a way they never have before. I, for one, never thought I'd miss pregnancy sex. I had a horrible case of morning sickness that lasted the entire duration of my pregnancy and made me feel anything but sexy. I thought pregnancy sex was kind of awkward, sort of uncomfortable and really odd. Then I had my son and actually started missing the pregnant sex I was able to have with my partner. While there were some uncomfortably weird moments, like my breasts leaking milk (honestly, why science? Why?), there were some fun moments that only pregnancy sex could give me. I was enjoying a new body I had never had before, feeling unabated and anything but self-conscious because that body (while larger than normal) was also doing something incredible, and I was falling asleep as soon as I was done having sex. You guys, that's the dream.
