it's safe..

This is interesting ladies, if you worried about Sex during pregnancy, on!!! :P

According to an article, it's absolutely ok for every pregnant women to have sex. With a normal pregnancy, we can keep doing it right up until water breaks. Do check with your doctor or midwife first if you've been treated for premature labor or if you're having any problems with your pregnancy, such as a shortened or dilated cervix, leaking amniotic fluid, placenta previa, or bleeding, or if you have a history of miscarriages. There are some instances when you should avoid having sex.

But as long as pregnancy is normal, you won't hurt the baby by making love, even with your partner on top. The thick mucus plug that seals the cervix helps guard against infection. The amniotic sac and the strong muscles of the uterus also protect your baby. Though your baby may thrash around a bit after orgasm, it's because of your pounding heart, not because he/she knows what's happening or feels pain.

OK...the best part...

Which positions are the most comfortable?

Here are some time-tested positions and tips for making love while pregnant:
• Lie sideways. Having your partner on top demands increasingly creative gymnastics as your tummy swells. But lying partly sideways allows your partner to keep most of his weight off your uterus.

• Use the bed as a prop. Your bulge isn't an obstacle if you lie on your back at the side or foot of the bed with your knees bent, and your bottom and feet perched at the edge of the mattress. Your partner can either kneel or stand in front of you.

• Lie side-by-side in the spoon position, which allows for only shallow penetration. Deep thrusts can become uncomfortable as the months pass.

• Get on top of your partner. It puts no weight on your abdomen and allows you to control the depth of penetration.

• Have your partner enter you from a sitting position, which also puts no weight on the uterus. Try sitting on your partner's lap as he sits on a sturdy chair.

Have faith — where there's a will, there's a way. With a little experimenting, you and your partner are sure to find a technique that works for you.
