Not sure how to get it on when your bump is so big? Find out how to keep things sexy through your third trimester.
Hi, I'm Dr. Logan Levkoff, and this is what you should know about sex during your third trimester. Your body is definitely bigger, but you probably noticed that already. You may have a great sex drive, but you might be confused by how to actually do it while you're so round. During the third trimester, missionary position may not be ideal for you. The weight of your partner will put too much pressure on your uterus and, well, it won't really be that comfortable, anyway. Also, due to blood pressure changes, you may become dizzy or nauseated lying on your back. So try it on top, and really, who doesn't love a woman on top, or side by side. When you're on top or side by side, not only can you control the pace of sex, but there's no pressure on your uterus, and if that weren't enough, you or your partner can touch your clitoris in these positions, and that is very important for many women. And let's just say you're late, past that due date like I was with my daughter, you may wanna speed up labor, you may want that baby out. Well, it just so happens that sex, pleasurable sex, orgasm sex, can do that. During orgasm, uterine contractions may spur on labor, and after 40 plus weeks of pregnancy, that's a good thing.
