This will keep your tummy suspended in between your bodies, facilitate some deep eye contact and ensure that you are rubbed in all the right spots with no worries of feeling too heavy. One caution: if you remain in this position for a long time, your legs may feel cramped or sore. Remember to stretch them out after sitting this way, and consider switching up your positions regularly.

3. Putting Some Buns in that Oven
On hands and knees with your partner penetrating you from behind, this is a great hybrid of the two previous positions. Your partner has easy access to your breasts, clitoris, and the sensitive button on the front wall of your vagina (the G-spot), but you are able to control the force of the thrust by arching or leaning into the motion in whatever way feels best to you. You can support yourself with your arms, or choose to lean on top of a pillow to give you some extra leverage and avoid too much pressure on your wrists.

These are only three options of many that couples enjoy while nurturing a fetus. Please feel free to share your favorite positions below! And if you have been nervous to give in to your natural sexual urges, rest assured that it will not harm your future baby -- and may even do him/her good! After all, it’s what put them there in the first place!
