Did you know that if you have an orgasm while you are pregnant that the baby feels pleasure as well? Knowing this... how does it make you feel?

I must be having a boy because he falls asleep right after I am done.

I swear this is so wrong! I wish I had never known that little factoid!

  • They get the endorphin rush that we get. My hubby and I would always joke about the "stoned baby" after I would orgasm. I wondered if he'd ever want to come out, when it felt like THAT in there!

  • I had lots of orgasms when pregnant with my son, he is perfectly fine and the doctors don't say anything bad about it.
    Being pregnant with my daughter now I still have tons of orgams and everytime we go to the doctor we hear how wonderful she is doing, and the doctor still has yet to mention anything about a warning against orgasms

  • Oddly enough; with my daughter I didn't really want to be touched; let alone have sex; with my son and this one, I want it constantly; which to me is just weird by itself. To hear that they feel pleasure, actually it kind of grosses me out LOL!!!

  • Leoangel, they don't actually feel like they're having an orgasm. They just have the benefit of the chemicals released by your brain after an orgasm, endorphins, just as the pp said. So, there's no need to feel grossed out. The baby still has no idea about your dirty, filthy sin.
    (I'm kidding. If you're married it's okay.)

  • I was a little offended by the (I'm kidding. if you're married it's okay.) I am not married to my babies father and I know about 40% of the other women on here are not either!! Sorry i know this has nothing to do with the ? asked but that ticked me off... Anyways I googled this and they dont feel like they are having an orgasim they just get the same rush we do from the chemicals in their brain!!! lol

  • its goods for you and the baby if you have orgasams because the endorphins you let out when having sex go to the baby as well making him/her feel happy. its perfectly normal and healthy

  • Uh, I was joking. Of course you don't have to be married. I was joking about the sin part too.
