Umm this is my second child and I am unsure if I want to have vaginal sex during this pregnancy. Does anyone have any ideas of what is should do?

Why would you not want to have sex during the pregnancy?

Unless your Dr says not to, then why not!

Yes yes I agree with the above post, pregnant sex is the best ummmm hmmmm. I didn't have sex for almost two weeks when I was spotting. But once I finally decided to make it happen, I had the best sleep ever that night

It makes me nervous too... Luckily hubby is very understanding and tries to do things to make me not so nervous (going slowly etc)

With my first I was very nervous and we hardly had sex the whole time I was pregnant. This was probably because I had had a m/c a few months before, and though my brain knew that having sex doesn't cause a m/c, I just couldn't get the though out of my head that the night I found out I was pg we had sex and then shortly thereafter I started m/cing.
So, hardly any sex while pg with my DS, and I had pretty much ZERO sex drive the whole time too. And it didn't really return until about January of this year. Luckily, my sex drive hasn't gone away with this pregnancy! Now if I could just get DH to not be so dang tired all the time....
Anyway, I say unless your doctor has told you not to have sex (i.e. pelvic rest) then go for it! It really is quite enjoyable during pregnancy (and the few times I did have sex while pg with my first I did really enjoy it).

With my first, my husband (at the time) did not feel comfortable having sex at all so we didn't, not even once during the entire pregnancy.

I have since divorced and remarried and this is my second pregnancy. We've had sex without any issues this time around, though I will admit that sometimes I can feel something (my uterus?) nudging inside! Is this weird? I will definitely mention to the doctor on my next visit, but it's not uncomfortable, just unusual feeling.
