Just when you thought sex would be the last thing on your mind when you’re pregnant, a recent survey has revealed that mums-to-be feel their most frisky during their second trimester!

On average it takes around 104 sex sessions to conceive, so many women will have had a fair share of action between the sheets before getting pregnant when a bump can make sex more challenging! However a survey by HiPP Organic Baby Club found that 63% of pregnant woman admitted that they wanted more sex after they hit 13-28 weeks of their pregnancy. Perhaps that’s why the second trimester is also the favourite stage of 65% of the 11,000 pregnant women polled!

It is totally safe to have sex whilst you are pregnant, and whereas some women may experience changes to their sex drive, there are also lots of ways to stay intimate without having sex.
