How Is Sex Different During Pregnancy?

How Is Sex Different During Pregnancy?
As your body changes, sex will be different too. During pregnancy, your blood volume increases by about 40 percent. That not only swells your breasts to the size of a Vegas showgirl's, but it also heightens sensitivity throughout all your erogenous zones. And that can mean more intense, even multiple, orgasms.

You'll probably find that your sex drive fluctuates throughout pregnancy -- evaporating during your first trimester when you're tired and nauseated; getting livelier in the second trimester when high levels of hormones can send your libido through the stratosphere; then tapering off as your due date approaches and you feel achy, unwieldy, and maybe even nervous about impending parenthood. "At seven weeks, I felt like crap, and I was not going there," recalls Jenny, of Downey, California, whose daughter, Joe, is now 2. "But by the second trimester, we acted like we were still dating. I really wanted to be intimate, which was weird for me. We probably had sex six times a week."

And then there are the dreams. Robyn, of London, now pregnant with her second child, has such erotic dreams that she often wakes up her husband to finish things. "At 32 weeks and huge, the sex dreams make it worth it," she gushes.
