Best Positions for Sex When You Have a Big Belly


sex positions while pregnantCafe Kristen did a post for non-preggos not long ago on 10 New Sex Positions to Keep You Busy. But getting it on with a bump in the way is a different kind of business altogether. So what are the most comfortable positions for sex?

A mom in Pregnancy asked for ideas on the best sex positions with a big belly. Here are some suggestions from moms who've found their favorite way to do the deed:

Try using a chair. You sit and let him kneel in front of you. It's ideal if the chair is a little higher than hubby so he's pushing up instead of right on the tummy.

Do it side-lying. You lie on your left side, with him there on his knees. Put one of your legs in between his and the other over his. He enters from behind.

Woman on top! Several moms proclaimed this the best position -- it keeps the belly completely out of the way.

On your back, but not lying down all the way -- prop yourself up with pillows. While he stands at the edge of the bed, put your legs on his shoulders or rest your feet on his knees. Comfy, and he does all the work. :)

What's your favorite position for sex while PG?

well, since i am pregnant again, this really caught my eye! haha! the most comfortable for me last time was being on top, or lying on my side with him behind. i was very uncomfortable lying on my back when it got near the end of my pregnancy, even propped up. there's another position that i liked, but it is way too complicated to try and explain!

My favorite was side lying.  I use it on my lazy days too.  LOL  Doggy style worked well too.

I hate being on top while pregnant though most women say they love it.

Sidelying is nice and so is doggy.

I too hated being on top while preggo because my back would hurt since I couldn't lean forward enough but being on my side worked well every time!

I hated being on top when I was pregnant, but I never did like it much.  My fav was on my side with the bottom leg in between his legs and the other around his side. Its still fun even when I am not knocked up!

Spooning is the best!

At least it was the most comfortable for me, but no so much for my dh, LOL!

doggie 4 me has been the easiest to maneuver, especially now w/ me entering the final month.

On top, laying on the side, LOL basically anything but him being on top.

My favorite sex position while pregnant once my belly becomes an issue is on my hands and knees.  I can lie my front down if I use a pillow to prop and I have more movement and comfort that way than on top.  I hate being on top while pregnant.
