And the test have revealed…

Whether you have been trying, or you are shocked, the two lines on your pregnancy test can bring a whirl wind of emotions. From that point on, your life will no longer be the same. From large decisions like letting family and employer know. To daily decisions like dietary and sleep positions. You know have to think about more than you.

many women have concerns about sex during early pregnancy. They worry about whether it is safe, comfortable, and what precautions should they take. It is normal to have doubts because pregnancy is a delicate time for both mother and baby. In this blog, we will discuss everything you need to know about early pregnancy sex.

Is this Safe??

Firstly, you need to understand that it is safe to have sex during early pregnancy. The baby is protected by the amniotic sac and the cervix has a mucus plug that prevents bacteria from entering the uterus. When my wife was in her first trimester she would make jokes about giving the baby brain damage from the possibility to hitting her head while we made love. Although this was merely jokes it caused us to run to the internet to look up articles of the possibility… note to the women out there, this does not make it appeasing for men to think about their child in the same thought of intimacy… After researching the topic, and making the doctor laugh uncontrollably, we found the above facts to be indeed true.

However, there are some conditions where you should avoid sex, such as if you have placenta previa, vaginal bleeding, or a history of preterm labor. This needs to be noted cause every woman’s body is different. What works for Jane might not work for Jill. So always consult your doctor first, and above all, listen to your body!

Life is not cookie cut!

It is essential to note that every pregnancy is different. Some women may experience discomfort or pain during sex due to hormonal changes, while others may not feel anything different. If you experience any pain or discomfort during sex, it is best to consult your healthcare provider.

The strange thing is your libido might not decrease even if you have found that you don’t particularly enjoy penetration due to pain or discomfort. Communication is key! Telling your partner what feels good and what to avoid is a great way to keep things fun and enjoyable. Exploring other options if intimacy can help as well. It is important for me to state that penetration is not the only means of achieving intimacy and/or sexual release. My partner and I found pregnancy to be a great time to explore each other mind body and soul. It deepened our passions for each other in amazing ways that lasted even after the pregnancy.

Benefits of Early Pregnacy Sex.

Now let’s talk about the benefits of having sex during early pregnancy. Firstly, sex can help to reduce stress and anxiety, which is common during pregnancy for both partners. It also helps to improve blood circulation, which is beneficial for both mother and baby. Additionally, sex can strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which can help during labor and delivery. It improves sleep and over all well-being.

Beyond the physical benefits there are more spiritual benefits I would like to speak on. As two created one, this is not only in a sense of the baby. The two have essentially created a family (I pray). The number three holds very significant meaning in this universe. It is a completion number. The mother and father have completed the circle of life by creating life. In this time the life you two are creating should be showered with love.

The mother and the babies bodies are joined and so are their souls. One nurturing and the other downloading. The more joy, happiness, and excitement the mother feels the greater the experience the baby will have as it comes to this earth. Western science might not focus on the psychology before the ages of 2 years old, but as the brain develops in the womb so does the opportunity of traumas and lack there of. So engaging in regular moments of passion and intimacy can only help develop a strong sense of love that the newly forming soul will carry on for the rest of their lives.

Everything in moderation and care.

Now as you and your partner are ready to continue the love and love making, I hope you are excited to know that it is completely healthy to do so. However, there are some precautions you should take when having sex during early pregnancy. Firstly, avoid positions that put pressure on your abdomen, such as missionary or doggy style. Instead, try positions like side-by-side or spooning, which are more comfortable and less likely to cause discomfort.

We would recommend the use a condom during sex to prevent the transmission of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). STIs can cause complications during pregnancy, such as premature birth or low birth weight. In my non judgmental opinion, If you are not in a relationship you should be getting tested often and who ever you chose to sleep with should be current on all test as well. In these occasions of single parent motherhood, Abstaining from sexual contact would be the safest idea for the mother and the unborn child. Masturbation and an adequate self-love routine can fill the void for this short/long nine month period.

It is also essential to communicate with your partner about your concerns and preferences. If you experience pain or discomfort during sex, let your partner know so that they can adjust their movements or position accordingly. It is also essential to respect each other’s boundaries and take things slow if you are not feeling comfortable.

In conclusion

sex during early pregnancy is safe and can have many benefits. However, it is essential to take precautions and communicate with your partner to ensure a comfortable and safe experience. If you have any concerns or questions, it is best to consult your healthcare provider. Remember, every pregnancy is different, so listen to your body and do what feels right for you.
