Sex in 3rd trimester

(14 Posts)

I am 38 weeks and it's safe to say it's been a while. I miss being close to him but don't initiate because I know it's a logistical nightmare given my size now, and with us both already being bigger before pregnancy! We had no problems before but hubby struggles with being put off by the smallest re- menouvers or false starts and gets really put off.
Now, at this point, I think we are both over cautious and I struggle to initiate due to worrying my size will stop us and he seems to need me to do all the work to get going.
I just want to be close to him, and want the benefits of sex for encouraging labour, I just don't know what to do. It's becoming very upsetting for me and he feels a lot of pressure.

Could you possibly do cough other things?

Other things are great. 80% of activity now is other things. Let's be honest, its all a bit of a mess at the moment.

My biggest problem is the kicking baby is VERY distracting.

I'm 38 weeks too and totally sympathise but I've explained to my DH that just like tedious TTC sex, he is going to be required to perform over the next couple of weeks to help things along!

Doggy style an option?

mrsmugoo Tue 24-May-16 13:48:36

It's pretty much the only option!

Doggy or on your side and lots of extras .

Spooning - lie on the side with a pillow under bump and another pillow between your knees op. Curl up knees and he lays behind you.

Or kneels behind you. This was the only way for me when I was huge.

(And last night because I have a fractured leg bone and strangely being trussed up like this - it's making me frisky and I'm making u nreasonable demands on poor DP blush)

Hahahahaha grin straight talk from MrsMug grin

Im 34+3. I've taken to bending over the back of the sofa but the feeling of the baby kicking at the optimum moment feels so wrong.

To be fair to dp though hes been fab about it all.

Right here's want you do.... You complain of being really warm so go and put some tiny shorts on you then decide you need to go on the birthing ball, next you kneel using the ball to support your arms and bump, arse toward him and start rolling back and forward he wont be able to say no winkshock

Kiki's got the right idea grin
