I know it's okay to have sex, but are there any postions you should avoid at 9 (almost 10) weeks? We've done things the usual way with him on top and I know this sounds silly but I'm scared to death of hurting the baby. He did lie on me and put pressure on my stomach. (I forgot to ask the DR. about this) but what do you all think? Is it okay? I have worried myself sick about this all day. Also there was no pain or discomfort while having sex and I feel normal afterwards.
Thanks guys <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
Hey, sweetie. Try not to worry! If you were not uncomfortable and didn't feel any pain and had no bleeding afterwards you are fine. I actually fell flat on my stomach playing volleyball when I was about 4 to 5 months pregnant with my oldest daughter. Other than being extremely strong-willed and hard headed, she turned out fine! I think you need to just go with what is the most comfortable for you. You might try the style requiring you to be on your knees...if it makes you more comfortable! Good luck and happy experimenting <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">
sometimes when I have sex, i put my legs up like above my head cuz it goes in deeper. well the past few times we did that, it kinda hurt like it was going in too deep, and he was worried that it was pushing on the baby. Is that okay? Can that do any harm being jarred around like that? then I think about exercise and exercise can shake the baby all up. If i was a baby i wouldnt want to be shaken up i'd want to be still. are the exercises supposed to be low toned? is that harmful too?
If you have no after pain or bleeding and cramping then you should be fine. Little bit of advice: If a certain position hurts....don't use that position anymore. Kinda like when we say, "It hurts when i touch right here" Well then don't touch right there! LOL. I worried about him lying on my stomach too, but it fine. Trust me soon the guy will know that he cannot compete with your stomach any longer!
