Hi doctor. I am 31 weeks pregnant now and my husband always want to make love. But I'm scared we may hurt the baby. Also I don't often feel attractive because I have a big belly. Is this normal or is there a problem with me?
DOC NICOLA SAYS:
What you are feeling is completely normal and happens to most pregnant women! You will not hurt the baby if you have sex, but if you can you should use condoms to make 100% sure you dont get any STI's or HIV. Talk to your partner. Let him know how you feel. A lot of men find pregnant women very attractive!
