  • If this is your first pregnancy then the hurting may be your body stretching and preparing for the uterus to expand. I had that pain with my son for the first 3 months and because of that pain I hated sex.

  • It will get better! Everythings just starting stretch and do what it needs to do so things are goin' crazy, but once things settle down (around your second trimester) sex will be just as -or more- enjoyable as it was before you became pregnant! Best of luck!!

  • This is my first pregnancy and it happend to me at first but it didnt last long. Soon it started to seem like the best i ever got. lol. Maybe try a different position. It could just be the way he was going in that made it hurt. Hope you feel better and find something that works for ya. and congrats on your lil one!

  • I'm 8 weeks and can't have sex either. It's like it is all swollen down there. I've been told it is fairly normal and that it should get better in the second trimester.
