Sex in the Second Trimester


sex in second trimesterBetween the nausea, excess pimples, and my hormones in a spin, sex in the first trimester of my pregnancy hasn't been happening much. Though I have been having some crazy sex dreams. (But that's a whole other story.)

The good news is I've been hearing that it's the second trimester where you start feeling really frisky again. One more week to go for me!

When you are pregnant, there is more blood flowing all around -- and that means around your genitals, too, increasing sensations down there. And after 13 weeks of pregnancy, there's lots of blood flowing, plus all those first trimester issues should be going away.

I was reading in one of my pregnancy books that some women may experience some cramping after orgasm, but that should subside within a few minutes. Of course, if anything concerns you about sex when you are pregnant, it's always best to discuss with your doctor.

Have you felt an increase in your sex drive once you entered your second trimester?

I believe your sex life while pregnant is related to before you were, i'll be 24 weeks tommorow and the sex has been great, but like I said we were always active and being pregnant made it much better! I have more frequent orgasms back to back, it depends on the person I think because if you are worried about how you look and feel you will not enjoy having sex. So be comfortable! And it's natural and you'll know when you're ready!

The first five months I felt so sick to my stomach i didn't want to do anything.  I hit that 5th month though and holy cow, my husband is scared of me.  I think he is afraid to be in a room alone with me!  It was the same way with my first one as well.  For some odd reason he really gets turned on when my belly gets really round.  I am currently 33 weeks and now is HIS time to jump on me every five minutes!  LOL

We had sex up until I had DS, in fact having sex is what caused me too go into labor. And the whole time I was pregnant I was like a sex addict and as well as after hehe...

I've had the best sex of my life while pregnant - of course I was lucky enough to have no morning sickness either. But I hit week 15 and drive went through the floor. My breasts have a clear fluid coming out of them, my belly is getting bigger, and it hurts to have sex. I'm so bummed cos my fiance can tell I don't enjoy sex. I hope this all changes soon cos we'll both go crazy before too long!
