Your Partner’s Sex Drive
It is important to remember that it’s not just you who is experiencing sexual change. Your partner’s libido may very well be going through similar changes.
Many women are happy to report that their partner’s sex drive increases along with theirs. Numerous men find pregnant women very sexy, and greatly enjoy the new voluptuous curves pregnant women show off.
Your partner may also experience a renewed sense of closeness with you now that you are pregnant. Yet, like pregnant women, some men’s sex drive can also take a nosedive.
Often, men can get worried about hurting the baby during sex. Your new role as a mother and caregiver can also be intimidating to some men. However your partner feels, it is important to be accepting and supportive of his emotional and physical needs (even if your libido is at the opposite end of the spectrum).
