Sandman agony auntYou find it hard that you can't find the right positions, or hard that you are unsure if sex will harm your unborn child or not?

First of all, congrats on your pregnancy. Many blessings to you and your husband.

Now, sex while pregnant is okay. Since you're towards the end of pregnancy, you might need to find some positions that are comfortable for you while engaging in sex. Side lying positions (where you lie on either side and your husband enters you from behind while also lying on his side) is one. Another is the doggie position (doggy-style. Do I really need to explain this one?).

There are many variations on these positions. You might be able to find some on the internet by doing a simple search for sex positions during pregnancy.

Good luck on the birth and again, many blessings.

Hope this helps.

Not being silly. Many of us have the same concern. I've heard, and my memory seems to tell me I heard it from a doctor, that no, you can not hurt the baby during intercourse.
