Where Does Dad Fit In?

Tips for maintaining a satisfying sexual relationship during pregnancy:

Keep the lines of communication open with your partner. Encourage her to tell you what feels good, and what doesn't.

Experiment with different positions, finding one that you both find comfortable. Remember though, what feels good today might not tomorrow, so be prepared to be flexible.

Sex does not always have to include intercourse. Find other ways of being intimate and physically close to your partner. A massage can go a long way!

Remember to take the time to be romantic! Hold her hand. Give her a hug or a kiss just because. Send or pick her flowers just to brighten her day. Don't expect that every touch will lead to the bedroom. The more loving you are to your partner, the more receptive she's likely to become.

Dimming the lights or burning candles will help your partner feel less self-conscious about her growing body. Reassuring your partner that she is still beautiful and desirable will also help her get over these fears.

Let her know that it's ok for her to say no, just as it's ok for you to say no. Make sure that she knows that just because you don't want to make love, doesn't mean you love her less.
