SamJustice:It's uncomfortable for me too, but in a different way than anybody else it seems. Anytime I get really into and start moving along with FI, I get crampy feelings in my side. I haven't been able to figure out how to avoid it unfortunately. But for you, I'd suggest taking it slow and easy and using a good amount of lube. Or you can just forgo sex altogether and opt for either oral sex instead or use toys/hands. Or both!
SO and I have pretty much opted for oral and hands. Even with lube, there's way too much friction down there for it to feel comfortable for me. I'm hoping that it changes soon, because I'm getting quite tired of not having actual sex. Sex also tends to give me Braxton Hicks contractions - so I try to avoid it.
forensicmama:*raises hand* Lots of KY and tell your hubby to take it slowly.
Ditto this. Sex has been uncomfortable for me since I was 6 weeks :(
I hear ya- hubby and I only use one position these days because nothing we used to do feels good.
I would experiment with your positionings. I have a link for you but I'm sure there's more info online and honestly, it would be best to just try things for yourself and see what works.
We basically lay on our sides/back, my leg on top of him-no pressure on the belly and no pain what-so-ever.
