Your Pregnant Body: What He Really Thinks

"We Still Want Sex"

"My wife and I had some of the most playful sex of our relationship while she was pregnant, which was completely unexpected," says Downey. "It seemed we paid less attention to the act itself and just had fun and laughed a lot."

Horner had a similar experience. "We made love right up until the due date." He says maintaining intimacy during the pregnancy was easy. "Getting back up to speed postpartum was another matter, though."

Some dads say they were concerned about hurting the baby during sex. "I was worried about it at first," recalls Avrin. "But my wife had a child from her first marriage, and she knew it was safe, so I felt comfortable."
