Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Try new positions that don't allow him to go too deep. I always thought that  laying sideways is a good way to be comfortable and painless.
doggy style doesent hurt it feels good just put pillows under your breast so your belly doesent smack down
u could also try u on top u  have more control over how deep and how hard u do it so id try that and yes i tried doggy it seemed fine to no pains this was my first pregnancy also so i know what u mean i had alot of worries
Semen has a hormone called prostaglandin that induces contractions. The after pains you may be feeling could be due to small but harmless contractions, going too deep, or the uterus getting heavier. Some people use condoms during this time to prevent the semen from reaching the cervix. This is just a comfort thing. Contractions are totally harmless.
