Affectionately known as "doggy style," the rear entry position is a favorite of many pregnant women. This is because it allows for deeper penetration and also gives you the opportunity to support your stomach and breasts.
You get on all fours and, using pillows, support your stomach and chest. Your partner then stands or kneels behind you, and enters from behind. Because deep thrusting is involved, be sure to tell your partner exactly what feels good for you.
