I'll be about 8 months pregnant on our first anniversary. My husband shys away when I try to have sex with me. He says he is scared of hurting our unborn daughter.

What can I do to make him want me?

And what should I get him for our anniversary?

Hi Ezabellas mama

This is a pretty common fear among men during a first pregnancy. Most of the time sex is perfectly safe during pregnancy, but it does depend on your specific situation and health history, and whether your pregnancy is risky. I suggest having your husband accompany you on a visit to your obstetrician or you discuss it with your obstetrician and share the information with your husband.

We do have information on sex during pregnancy, although as I said it depends on your situation: https://www.empowher.com/pregnancy/content/sex-during-pregnancy.

As far as what to buy your husband, I'm afraid without knowing him I would have no idea about that. Good luck to you and thanks for writing.
