"Feeling uncomfortable during pregnancy" describes most women's pregnancies...whether they are having sex, trying to sleep or getting dressed! Depending on many factors in your pregnancy, "feeling uncomfortable" is normal regardless of your activity.

If you are feeling uncomfortable during sex, you can try different positions. However, as Missie asked above, if you are experiencing pain during sex, you should contact your OB/GYN.

Hi again Carlotta,
Sex should not be painful while pregnant. Is there something specific that is painful? Please provide us with the details of your pain that you are experiencing.
