Things about pregnancy you should know

Although you probably think you know everything about sex by the time you get pregnant—after all, it’s what landed you in this situation in the first place—you may still have plenty of questions about knocking boots while you’re knocked up. There’s no right or wrong way to have sex when you’re pregnant—you’re not going to crush the baby doing missionary or lying on your belly. While intercourse is totally fair game while you’re pregnant, don’t be surprised if you’re just not in the mood.
Plus, if you were always nervous about sex because you didn’t want to get pregnant, the fact that that’s no longer an issue can be liberating, Dr.

Minkin insists that you avoid having sex with anyone you think might have a sexually transmitted infection during your pregnancy. And you’ve been diagnosed with placenta previa, a condition in which the placenta is covering your cervix, you, too, should abstain (from both intercourse and having orgasms altogether, alas). Then there’s the release of the hormone prolactin, which occurs all throughout pregnancy and may reduce libido.
Body image can also do a number on you; so much of libido is psychological, and it’s possible that your rapidly changing shape could have you feeling out of sorts in your own skin, and less attractive as a result (though say it with us—you are one gorgeous mama, extra pounds and all).

Your baby could pick up that bacteria as it passes through the birth canal, potentially developing blindness as a result.
Every infant delivered in a hospital today is given eye drops at birth to prevent this condition, called opthalmia neonatura, but you can never be too careful.
