There's always been a misconception about having sex during pregnancy, most preferring NOT doing it despite the urges.
But sex is completely safe and there's no reason why you can't continue having sex during your pregnancy. The level of estrogen and progesterone is comparatively high when you're pregnant and it's probably the best time to live your fantasy and have the best sex.
Even the expert obstetrician-gynecologists suggest on having sex. It's not just for momentary pleasure but it helps to make the bond between the parents-to-be stronger and better. With that being said, most of you might be wondering how to start things as the old missionary position is not safe. Worry not, as experts have suggested five best sex positions that are ideal during pregnancy.
1. Lady On Top
When a pregnant woman is on top, there's no pressure on your belly and uterus during the intercourse. Lying flat on back for a long time shifts pressure from the enlarged uterus to the major blood vessels limiting the blood supply to the fetus, which is harmful to the growing baby.
Women on their second and third trimesters should go for on-top position. You could try this with your partner lying flat, while you lean back on your hands for major stimulation. Kneeling is better instead of squatting for this position when you're in your third trimester.
2. Push From Behind
This position is slightly different from the conventional doggie style. Your partner could kneel on the bed and you can sit back on his lap, like a kneeling cowgirl!
For support, you could rest your palms on the bed and your partner can do the rest. This position helps you to control the speed and it requires a good teamwork.
Spooning is another best position to break the dry spell. Lie side by side, drawing your legs towards your chest, letting your partner penetrate. Spooning sex is ideal for third trimesters as your bump is pretty huge during this phase.
This cuddly love will definitely spark the hidden romance between you and your partner.
4. The Reclining Goddess
Oral sex is completely safe during pregnancy and it guarantees orgasms to all the ladies, thanks to the increased blood supply to the labia and vagina during this time. It's probably the nicest thing your partner can do you and it'll definitely make you feel better.
But make sure your partner is not blowing air into your vagina as it might block a blood vessel inside the vagina, threatening the lives of you and your baby.
You can go for this position if you want a slow and sensual sex. Start with lying flat on a comfy bed, both on the opposite side and let your partner penetrate you. The legs resemble like a scissor and there's no need to worry about the speed during this position. You can place a pillow under your hips for support and flexibility.
So ladies, enjoy it while it lasts, just nine months!!
