Third Trimester

Q&A: Best Sex Positions For Third Trimester?

I’m big as a house! What are the best sexual positions for me and my husband?

OK, here are your options (choose any — or all!):

Spoon
Lie on your side curled in a C, as your husband faces your back and enters your vagina from behind. Nice and cozy.

Side by side
Lie side by side with your husband, facing one another. He slips his leg over yours (your leg is straight and to the side or bent at the knee) and enters you from an angle. Another good one for keeping his weight off your belly.

You on top
You get the picture. This one’s great for controlling the pace. (And don’t be self-conscious about your belly — it’s beautiful.)

Edge of the bed
Lie face-up on the edge of the bed, with your feet on the floor. Your husband stands or bends over you. Just make sure he doesn’t thrust too deeply.

Rear-entry
Support yourself on all fours (on the bed or floor) as your husband enters from behind. Wonderful way to get some g-spot stimulation but again, beware of major thrusting.

Plan B
If you’re just too uncomfortable, consider oral sex (never blow air into the vagina) or mutual masturbation. Have fun!
