Well, sure. But the good news? It could be anything from your hormones to getting used to your new body. In the third trimester, a growing belly can start making sex more awkward.
But after clearing that up, you might be wondering how to make the whole thing work. As your tiny baby bump blossoms into a full-fledged belly, not every position might be comfortable — or satisfying — for you and your partner. Even though having sex while pregnant might seem like unfamiliar territory, there are still plenty of positions that will feel good. And you can use them up until the very end.
This comes as no surprise to Shannon Chavez, Psy. This position allows control of speed, depth, and body position. Chavez recommends using products such as a Liberator wedge to support the belly or body weight while receiving stimulation from behind. If you want to be able to totally chill out and not have to think about any sort of balancing act or getting too active, Brito recommends this relaxing, seated position. Plus, Brito likes reverse cowgirl for any trimester—especially the third.
After all, sex is about enjoying the body, intimacy, and closeness. Intimacy comes in plenty of forms, including kissing, breast pleasure, oral sex, fantasy, and even anal sex. Read up on oral sex techniques.
