  • I was the HORNIEST pregnant woman walking with my second child. Hubby worked 3rd shift and I would get some when he got home, and get some throughout the day before our oldest got in from school and then after he was in bed another round before work. On the weekends I was awful cause my oldest usually went to my mom's or sisters and we had thehouse to ourselves. when I went into preterm labor and the doc said no more sex for 2 weeks my hubby looked as though he had been shot rofl. the ddoc was like why the look and when gene explained he was getting it an average of 5 times a day through the week and 6 on the wkends the doctor was like well then you need a breather rofl...

  • I did. Towards the end you have to get creative for it to be comfortable. Just make sure he isn' laying on your belly, and that you are not flat on your back too long (this isn't good for the baby). Other than that, there isn't anything wrong with it, as long as your doctor hasn't told you to stay away from it.

  • I don't know anyone who was able to wait the entire nine months. I won't hurt the baby to have sex. Now if your single with more then one partner Iwould encourage you to use protection. Being pregnant makes you (or it did me) feel different and want sex often. I did while I was pregnant with both of my kids (ages 2 and 8) the entire time. Have fun now. when the baby is born you'll have to wait for 6 to 8 wks (or until the doctors says) and then you may be up with the baby all night and too tired to have sex for a while. You'll be really busy after. Do it Girl!!!!!

  • Yep, had sex the whole time. Its the testosterone and other hormones running rampant in you right now. It gets more difficult as you get bigger, but thats all right. Just make sure your doctor says its ok. Frankly I dont see how anyone could go without wanting sex as badly as I did the last 6 or 7 months, it near drove me nuts! LOL

  • I went through a period where I just could NOT have sex. It grossed me out. I think I was having trouble seperating my roll and mom and my roll as wife but it got better. After a while we had sex all the time (except for when I was on bed rest) . Sometimes several times a day. Unless your having complications it's completely safe but the desire has got to be there too.

  • Yeah i do but not the 9 month. In the 8 month i very careful too. The men love pregnant sex. It feel way better for them and some women too.

  • OH yes!!!! We had SEX the ENTIRER time!! For us it was the BEST sex we have ever had. ( WITH BOTH OF MY PREGNANCIES) My HUBBY loved that I was the ONE who wanted it ALL the time. I would BEG him ( now there is a switch, LOL) We got real creative toward the end. In the end my doctor even suggested we have lots of sex for the hormone that was released that could HELP bring on contractions. IT WS AWESOME!

  • With my first pregnancy my ex and I had sex the whole nine months and we even had sex just before going to the hospital to give birth. Its safe unless your doctor tells you that you are at a risk and you should stay away from sex.

  • I have as long as I am confortable and it doesn't hurt but I have been enjoying it...=) I mean Im already preggers right can't happen again. And look at how creative you get to be once that belly starts to get big with positioning.
