Hi everyone! I am finally into my 3rd trimester! Whoo! Everything is going well for me so far though I have some questions about having sex.
My husband and I haven't hardly had any sex since I became pregnant. I feel this is because my last pregnancy was a miscarriage and I am scared to death of losing another baby.
We still fool around occationally (make each other orgasam) though afterwards I feel terribly guilty and worry lots that I have hurt my baby. If we try to have sex then it really hurts. Is that because I am so tense and worried. I don't feel comfortable when he is trying to touch me.
I am worried that I am going to get an infection and it will kill my baby.
Is it fine to use lubricant while pregnant?
I feel bad for my husbands sake cause I avoid any intimacy and kept saying no to sex!
I still get turned on though I stop myself from doing anything because I worry so much about bubs.
I haven't said anything to my doctor because I am too embarrassed so can anyone help with some advice?
Sex will not hurt your baby. But I can understand you concern,you could always ask the doctor if sex is ok and he/she will explain everything. Just take things real slowly. Your baby wont get an infection as nothing can get up there and they are pretty well protected. Remember that your cervix is closed till you go into labour so baby is preety safe from everything. I had the opposite problem when I was pregnant that my husband didn't want to have sex with me, while my sex drive was through the roof :-)
