Essay About Having More Sex When You're Pregnant

I Couldn't Get Enough Sex When I Was Pregnant

For many women, the thought of having sex while pregnant might make them even more nauseated than morning sickness. During my second pregnancy, I was definitely not one of those women. In fact, I couldn't get enough sex. My hormones made my libido shoot through the roof. My husband and I have been married almost 10 years, and those nine months served as the peak of our sex life. It was awesome.

I felt so sexy and confident that it made me horny . . . all of the time.

There was just something about that second pregnancy. I knew what to expect because I had done it all before, so I wasn't nervous or worried about myself or the baby. I took better care of myself, too, partly because I was chasing around a 1-year-old, but also because I chose to eat healthier. Since I gained a little less weight, I loved my belly. I felt so sexy and confident that it made me horny . . . all of the time.

At first, I thought it was just the hormones adjusting to the fact that I was pregnant and it would quickly fade. Nope. I wanted to jump all over my husband almost every single day for nine months straight. It definitely caught me by surprise. And my husband? Well, he was thrilled. During my first pregnancy, I was barely in the mood, so this total 180 turned on my husband even more. Long story short, we had a lot of fun.

Having more sex also helped kick-start my labor. My stubborn little daughter was born five days late, so we decided to try having sex in an attempt to encourage labor. Yes, at over nine months pregnant, the thought of getting busy still didn't gross me out. In fact, I was still able to have an orgasm. And about an hour after we were done, I woke up to use the bathroom and had lost my mucus plug. About another hour after that, my contractions finally started.

After my daughter was born, my libido dropped tremendously. I joke that she grabbed it on her way out of the birth canal. Today, I'm back to how many moms feel about sex — just too damn tired. My husband and I go through ebbs and flows, and I'm hopeful that my libido will increase again (maybe when the kids are older and I'm able to steal more sleep). But I'll always have those sensual memories of the sexiest nine months of our lives.
