Sex During Pregnancy

Thanks to my new Facebook page Heartmamavi, I was able to receive a topic suggestion. What is sex like during pregnancy?



With this pregnancy, sex is much more enjoyable. I'm thinking it's because I'm not as uncomfortable being pregnant as I was in my first pregnancy. Plus, I haven't gained as much weight and I pretty much feel the same way I felt at 3 months. I think what helped the most is before sex even  happens, you and your partner should find positions that works for the both of you. That way when sex is about to happen the moment isn't killed by trying to figure out what position works/will work.
I would recommend:
  • Use pillows to support the belly in "doggy style" positions and side positions
  • Being on top is always an awesome position 
  • Use lubrication as necessary if you're in air-conditioned or fan on with no sheets settings
  • Keep the lights on as always... will make you feel more comfortable knowing your partner finds you highly attractive with a huge watermelon in your belly :)
  • Use a chair with a sturdy backrest to hold on to while your partner relaxes
  • Avoid tiles and hard floor settings, can be extremely uncomfortable obviously
  • Sitting on a "not too high" table is another comfortable position while your partner does most of the work
  • Days when you don't want to be too physical, oral sex works!
  • During sex try not to think too much about your belly and focus on pleasure
Pregnancy can cause you to be tired at times, but don't let this affect your sexual life with your partner. Try to boast your energy by exercising and eating super foods.  I hope this helps. Remember everyone is different so what works for me, might not work for you. Let me know what works or worked best for you all.

With Love,

Hey everybody! I know it's been a while since I've posted. But everything's going great so far. I am now 22 weeks. According to my pregnancy app, the baby is the "length of a spaghetti squash"; the size of my belly makes me think the baby's much bigger.

I finally decided to start a Twitter account and a Facebook page just for my blog. So follow me on Twitter https://twitter.com/Heartmamavi and on Facebook at Heartmamavi.

Midway Through Pregnancy

Guess what!!!! I'm 20 weeks. That's right I'm halfway through my pregnancy. I went to the doctor today and she said everything looks "perfect". So I'm pretty happy about that. Because the last visit she was talking about bacteria and anemia....I was a bit alarmed about that. I wish to share videos and more detailed picture, but I'm respecting my love. He's a bit "old fashion" lol!! Anyways I can share with you an image of what my belly looks like at 20 weeks. So far I've only gained 10lbs (pre-pregnancy weight 125) which I'm proud of.

My Husband Is Always Right!!!

Why does it seem like my husband is always right about everything? So we went for the ultrasound and while the lady was going over my belly...I saw a penis! I was the first to notice it. With that said...ITS A BOY! I'm super excited to meet my second lil' boy. My hopes is for him and his brother to have an awesome relationship.

Right now our living situation we have 1 additional bedroom. So it works out perfectly. Hopefully, by the time we do have a girl we will have all the space she needs. I saved all my son's baby stuff. So the only expenses I have with this baby is the cost for delivery and my doctors visits. I am grateful.

I have another doctors appointment this week. So I'll find out the results of the ultrasound. So now the big challenge is coming up with a boy name. My husband wants to name him either Bones, Samson, or Barak. All of which I do not like at all!
 
Have a blessed day and feel free to share your comments. Keep me in your prayers. Let me know if you have two sons, or all boys, and how is to deal with them?

Two More Days Until the Ultrasound

I am so excited that this week my husband and I will finally get to see our bundle of joy inside my womb. He thinks it's a boy and I think it's a girl, but whatever sex the baby is we will both be content once our baby is healthy. We haven't searched for name options yet, Hubby wants to wait until he knows for sure what gender the baby is. This should be very interesting. He thinks he's right about this, because he was right about our son...so we'll see. Having a boy would be cool too. He'd get to use his big brother's stuff and my son would have a little brother to tumble around with. But a little girl would be cool too...I could get to do all the Mommy and daughter things.

Today was such a productive one for me, I taught my son his lessons, did some light cleaning, and cooked a soup for dinner. It came out pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of soups, but when I do attempt to make something I try my best to make it taste good.

Anyways, I'll keep you all updated on everything. Let me know if there are any hot topics you'd like me to talk about. Have a blessed day!
