Thanks to the hormones – yes, them again! – some women will not feel like having sex at all during pregnancy. A combination of morning sickness, fatigue and general discomfort as your bump grows, can lead to a feeling that sex just isn’t a good idea.
Talk to your partner about how you’re feeling and if you really don’t want to have sex, try other ways to stay close. Having a cuddle, holding hands while on a walk, or just talking about how you feel can help retain intimacy.
On the other hand, some women find pregnancy their sexiest time and their libido can skyrocket. Again, it’s those pesky hormones at work, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Just make sure to stay in a position that feels safe and comfortable.
