Sex whlie Pregnant

Hi doc.

I am 20 weeks pregnant and I am carrying very low. The baby is pushing on my bladder.

When I have sex I get a terrible burn in my bladder and I get a mini-bladder infection. Sex is very uncomfortable even though I empty my bladder before sex. We do not have vigorous sex or sex for a long time so I am not sure how else I can avoid this happening. Please can you give me some advice? I do not want our relationship to suffer during this time.

Thank you

Hi Louise,
I also had the same problem, try doing it doggy style. That way the baby moves away from the bladder. also try moving baby by " picking him/her up"  while on top.
