Weight Gain During Pregnancy: The Intimacy Killer

Margarita FolkPosted by

When the wedding bells rang through the town, and you and your new husband ran arm and arm from the church into the waiting limousine, you certainly had no idea that you would be pregnant soon after.

At first, the sex was great, earth shattering even, but then the pregnancy "blahs" set in and now you would rather curl up with a good romance novel than have to go through the matter of having sex. Having to take all your clothes off, actually do the deed, and then clean up afterwards sounds like too much work in your condition.

Understanding Weight Gain During Pregnancy

Your body is a temple; a pure place where your child is growing, and expanding. Although this is a great and beautiful thing, your temple is only so big. When the child gets to be certain size, in utero, your temple will need to have an addition put on.

Your body grows as your baby does, and so this might be a depressing thought, but you should remember that the weight will always come off and that the most important thing is that your baby will be born healthy.

You Feel Like a Penguin in Mating Season

So you are six months pregnant, and so far you have earned a total of 15 pounds. You always knew that weight gain during pregnancy was normal, but you sure do not feel normal. With all this additional weight your body is carrying you feel like you could collapse at any moment just from the burden. You feel that penguins have more grace than you.

Weight gain during pregnancy has been more of a problem to most people than most probably would have thought; not only do you feel fat and awkward, but you also most likely feel totally unattractive.

Sexless Goddess

What with most of the weight gathering around your waist, hips, and butt, this can tend to make you feel rather disgusting. Despite feeling nasty, you should remember that your husband is still going to desire physical intimacy with you. After all, he is not going through the same physical changes as you and so he does not understand that sex might not be what you need.

In your eyes, you see a fat, awkward, harpy whose weight gain during pregnancy has only added distress and depression to your life. But in your husband's eyes you are a glowing goddess of life!

To him, you could not be more beautiful. You are not only the love of his life; you are also the vessel carrying his child. You are beautiful, sensual, and your breasts are bursting out of your top. To him, you have never been sexier.This is the main reason that men are still very into sex during their wife's pregnancy.

All this to say that weight gain during pregnancy is normal. At times your love life may be affected, but the up side to all the difficulties is; you're baby will be healthy!
