Re: I’m big as a house! What are the best sexual positions for me and my husband?

The Bump Expert

OK, here are your options (choose any -- or all!):

Spoon
Lie on your side curled in a C, as your husband faces your back and enters your vagina from behind. Nice and cozy.

Side by side
Lie side by side with your husband, facing one another. He slips his leg over yours (your leg is straight and to the side or bent at the knee) and enters you from an angle. Another good one for keeping his weight off your belly.

You on top
You get the picture. This one’s great for controlling the pace. (And don’t be self-conscious about your belly -- it’s beautiful.)

Edge of the bed
Lie face-up on the edge of the bed, with your feet on the floor. Your husband stands or bends over you. Just make sure he doesn’t thrust too deeply.

Rear-entry
Support yourself on all fours (on the bed or floor) as your husband enters from behind. Wonderful way to get some g-spot stimulation but again, beware of major thrusting.

Plan B
If you’re just too uncomfortable, consider oral sex (never blow air into the vagina) or mutual masturbation. Have fun!

You on top facing opposite direction - more room to lean over with out squishing LO especially if DH has a belly.

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I still have sex on my back with my legs up so my husband doesn't lay directly on me.

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I prefer on top for multiple reasons. It allows me to feel like I have control so im not scared of him going too deep and I get to do basically all the work so i feel like im getting some exercise...lol

sweetbaby2010 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

We've tried at a right angle sorta thing..he is straight on his side and I'm on my side at a right angle to him. He can still grab hold and thrust without going too deep and I don't feel like I have to be on top all the time which is the majority of our position preferences these days.

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

i am 27 weeks and my baby is extremely low, so sex at ll is extremely uncomfortable for me, plus im never in the mood which is rare for me. any suggestions for me and my poor hubby?

Azbell31 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I have 13 days left and have found that being on top is one of the best positions, we also have found that putting a pillow beneath my stomach for "doggy" style(from behind) helps a lot. Now I am at the point of trying to figure out how to go into early labor cause thats the only way my work will let me start my maternity leave. if there are any suggestions email them to me @ tanjanowinsky@yahoo.com just let me know you are off here.

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I am 36 weeks and spoon is the most comfortable for me and my husbandwhen on top my legs tend to get craps so i choose Spoon.

temptme90@yahoo.com |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I'm 39 weeks pregnant and i found that me on top is much more better and comfortable and i could take control of the situation.

Lali22 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

Atm, at 37 weeks , I'm preferring "doggy" style. I like being on top, but I can't lean forward to kiss my hubby and get tired quickly .. so I get comfy and let him do most of the work ;)

momat42 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

Depends on what mood i'm in. Doggy style takes the baby weight a bit if you put a pillow underneath your belly. The reason you shouldn't lay on your back is because you cut oxygen and blood from the baby so even if you can don't do that position!!

Edge of the bed!!!! *:)

PMJA2010 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I call it forking... you lay on your side and put one leg inbetween his while he is kneeling and then one on the outside of his legs. The belly doesn't get in the way!

swentz71407 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

Definitely edge of the bed, couch, table, whatever. 37 weeks, but it's like a first trimester all over again!

Solbean2002 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

Have your DH sit on a chair and then sit on top of him, facing away, with your legs "straddling" his lap. It makes for a nice squatting exercise for you, and if your hubby is anything like mine, he loves the view of my back side. You can also control things this way just like when you're on top.

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

Sex has been amazing my whole pregnnancy!! I thought I would be self consious but its quite the contrary. My breasts are huge, which I am enjoying very much considering i have been a b cup my whole life. I have orgasams like no other and i am constantly ready to jump on my husband! The best position is me on top cause he can play with my breasts. Another one I love is when I lay on my side and wrap one of my legs around his waist as he slowly penetrates in me. I am enjoying sex during pregancy with 7 weeks to go!

kjurca |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

@imablackbeltgirl - Im afraid to put the weight of two people on one chair lol. Sex is slowing down alot at 37 weeks. I def agree with being on top tho, I cant tolerate the pressure from rear entry and dislike spooning at this point. I miss my prenatal , and first trimester sex, a lot!

ChistyChisty |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

Definitely on top, its not "too deep" and I can control it so it doesnt hurt...if I get tired, all he has to do is take over and in no time flat, we are both good!!!! Doggie style is good too but if DH thrusts too hard and not realize it, it can hurt, so on top works pretty well, I haven't found any others that have worked. The spoon position just doesn't work at all...

Natalie777 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I find laying on my side with one leg (which ever leg is on top) bent and my husband straddles my bottom leg (which is left extended) and enters the vagina almost like doggy style... only without the discomfort of the baby hanging below... The side positioning actually supports the baby's weight and no pressure is put on my knees, stomach, back, or wrists. Its very relaxing and gets the job done! Hits the spot every time (sometimes wonder if it works more for him than me, lol...) Try this out and enjoy! I hope I described this position right.

carindines |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I like being in a narrow doorway or over the bathroom sink. DH isn't much taller than I am. I just bend over enough and he enters from behind. Then I have the door way or side of the sink to hold onto for balance while he does the work. DH loves it!

lenabeth |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

Edge is best. I cannot stand to be on top anymore. I feel so wobbly like trying to balance a glass plate on a beach ball. And underneath forget it! I have to hold on to my belly because it is so low. It's more funny and sexy.

boobgenie409 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

First off. I love how much my DH still makes me feel sexy and attractive at 38 weeks. Think that's really important for those of you that are having "in the mood" issues. In my personal exp. our intimate time helps us re-group ( we tend to get grouchy/frustrated if we go more than few days) Being late in pregnancy yeah there is gonna be obstacles like more moisture down there but shower with him before hand (also good way to get u 2 in the mood) if your worried about how u look have him close eyes and do oral to get him started. Get your sex in any way shape or form while you can ladies! Just be safe and smart about it :)

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

ok,my husband is coming home(he is a marine)im 38 weeks along,is it safe to still have sex missionary?thats is one of the ones he likes best..im also worried he will feel the baby..is that possible?

TeresaMama |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I'm 37 weeks, and we recently did doggystyle (him behind me). I wouldn't recommend it, because it made me bleed, and he didn't even thrust really hard or anything.

goodchar130 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I am 34 weeks pregnant. I never stopped wanting to have sex with hubby but he is so cautious and not willing to step forward. We had sex maybe 3 times during all these months and it was all oral sex. He is not comfortable for any penetration because as soon as I ask him to do it, his thing will shut down! I have been upset about this but what can I say?!

maryammirshams |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I highly recommend using a pillow under your belly if you decide on doggy style...it's much more comfortable that way!

jennife0 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

Honestly, I'm 37 weeks & sex is the last thing on my mind! I'm too busy getting everything ready & catching up on sleep. Hubby is understanding. My pelvic joints are in pain, I'm constantly having to pee so much, that sex would just be uncomfortable. It's gotten annoying asking him to stop in the middle so I can pee and then going at it again. Haha :)

SW33TH3ART |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I am 30 weeks. It is most comfortable either me on top or "doggy" style with a pillow underneath my belly to support the weight of the baby.

cowgirl0809 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

edge of the bed is the only way we can these days. Im 31 weeks and HUGE. My husbad is 6 foot 3 and 350 lb so we have two bellys to contend with!LOL Im outherwise a small person only 5 foot 2. The edge of bed keeps me from going completly out of breath from compreshion of my lungs.

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

In order for us to have actual intercourse without the V feeling like it's ripping, I have to hit the big O first, which at 33 weeks, is taking longer than EVER before. We use Astroglide, but that only helps the dryness, not the pressure. I would swear that I have a varicose vein INSIDE, but haven't asked my midwife to check it out (silly me). Doggy style helps get Baby out of my hips so that I can sleep more comfortably AND is not too painful on my relaxin-loose hips. I can practice my pelvic tilts in the midst of the fun, too. ;) And my Kegels!!! I would suggest Kegels in ANY position, as it gives you some "resistance" to work against (and your S.O. will probably love it, too!)

BelMack |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

spooning is most comfortable at almost 38 weeks....ya not suppose to be doing ont he back positions as this point tue to cutting off oxygen to the baby .me on top or him on top i feel like an umpa lumpa anyways with 22 lb packed on but my husband has found me just as sexy and desirable this throughout this whole process :)

mommy20052011 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

Being on top has worked the best for us. It allows me to go at my own pace and comfort level.

asacca76 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I find most comfortable when my husband is on his side facing me and I am on my back at a 90 degree angle (perpendicular) to him. It allows for manual stimulation and no weight is on my belly. I usually have one leg between his and the other leg up over his side, which takes pressure off my lower back as well. Good luck and HAVE FUN! Don't get stressed if you can't O, just enjoy the time together! :-)

IDoHair4u |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

If you are like me and like the whole body on body contact i think spooning and on the stomach(froggy position) is the best. I know it sounds a little funny since being 37 weeks I'm pretty big, but I use soft fluffy pillows that absorbed the thrusting from behind and I use my arms to hold myself up. I call the stomach position the froggy position since my fiance and lock our feet together to help him gain more leverage to push and I can control the weight he applies. (the way he thrusts looks almost like a frog attempting to jump) I think we get more out of sex this way since my butt got bigger he can't push to far inside but just enough ;). This position it's great for a lot of physical contact and he can also rest his head next to mine for a kiss.

dduenas12 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

edge of the bed or doggy style! i'm too tired to be on top and i get sore too quickly in the spoon position. plus on the edge of the bed that puts me at a good angle for us both for g spot stimulation, and he can go deeper without hurting me. plus he says it feels a little tighter which is a plus for him.

beautiflaw |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

Reverse cowgirl seems to work if your not to tired. Have you guy spread his legs a little so if you want to drop to ur elbows your belly will fit right between his legs. Worked for us until this week (39) cuz I've been way to tired.

KatShann82 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I'm 29 weeks I enjoy being on top, oral and also missionary...but with missionary I put a pillow under my bum and it works fine!

kfrancis15 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

My idea of a sexy time is cuddling on the couch...in the event things get steamy and the mood is right I prefer doggy, on top, on my back; the other day he tried a really great position: him laying flat on the bed, couch or carpet with me on all fours/sitting up right thrusting back at him to control the depth and pace....mmmm good!

Freakyprego |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

What's wrong with deep thrusting? He can't possibly injure the baby, right?

purplemonkeydishwasher |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

First off - Spooning sucks. If you have much of a butt at all - it gets in the way. My husband and I are still using missionary position with him on top with only 3 weeks to go. However, in the shower from behind and the edge of the bed also works. Me on top is not really an option because I feel completely off balance.

platinumpink13 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

me and my husband still do doggie and missionary without the weight on the bally, we also do sideways and its very confortable, when my back hurts too much then we do 69

sexymamma93 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I see where it says beware of them going too deep. My partner is well endowed, is it hurtful to the baby if he goes too deep, or just uncomfortable for mommy?

cass420 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

Doggy style or you on top, those are the only two that work for my husband and I, which is ironic sense I usually don't like doggy style, but it really is the only one that doesn't hurt or feel weird with a big belly in your way, and it's definitely one of his favorites!

cptrier1988 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

have him lay on his side an you on your back and he enters from behindand you can put your legs over his hips or spread them its all wats comfortable to you. but its easy, enjoyable, and easy access to your clitoris. :) very good position

kbsurber |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

my boyfriend and i both gained a significant amount of weight during this pregnancy, the only position we do is (doggy style), we cant spoon cause of his belly, and our bellys collide when im on top.... i wish there was another position we could do.

josie94 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

My hubby sits down with his legs bent and I get on my knees and put my feet under his legs use my labor ball as support for my upper half. I kinda sit on him and the labor ball is great to rock me back and forth without stressing myself and keeping me in control. Im due in two weeks so this is great and relaxing and im angled forward a bit so it takes pressure off my vagina so it doesn't feel cramped down there. I wish I could show a diagram to explain it easier, lol

ibeattrashcan |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

I definitely think on top is the most comfortable position and I like the control. From behind or any position he is really in control is too uncomfortable for me. I am totally jealous of everyone who has a great sex drive while pregnant though... I have had less sex while pregnant than I have ever had since I first had sex. Kinda ironic to me. I'm week 37 though so I guess lack of pregnant sex has prepared me for the lack of sex I'm told I'll have after the baby comes.

I am 32 weeks and most comfortable with doggy. It seems i can't get comfortable in any other position.

leduc82 |

Q&A: Best sex positions for third trimester?

At 28 weeks, MH and I usually do doggy style or edge of the bed with my feet wrapped around his neck. That way, if he is getting too deep, I can use my legs for some control. There have been a few times where my "area" got a little too overstimulated and I actually had trouble walking from the swelling. Since baby and placenta are very low, I do get nervous, but my midwife has given us the greenlight. MH was really horny one morning and wanted to go a couple rounds, and that is where oral really comes in handy! Just go at your own pace and readjust as needed. Sometimes I can start off on top, but get too tired and we switch it up to reverse cowgirl so I can lean forward or doggy style.
