Sex while pregnant

I’m in my 3rd trimester and my husband & I haven’t had sex since I was in my 1st trimester. We are still a loving couple who kisses and cuddles but my husband has been very scared of hurting me during sex so we haven’t done it in a while. We tried today and it was so disappointing. I couldn’t get wet and I think the lack of sex made my vagina tighter and smaller and he couldn’t penetrate. I ended up crying for not being able to perform and i think it made both of us even more put off by having sex anytime soon. How can I improve? Will this get better after the baby is out?

Same here! My husband is afraid of hurting baby and me, so we stopped doing it since early second trimester. I was dry and tight. But husband is very understanding and patient. Our sex drive will get better after childbirth, I’m sure. The sacrifices we made! Hang in there mummy! 🥰

I think right now just focus on your last lap, why is it necessary to have sex. Yes will get better after giving birth. In fact most ppl only start having sex 3month pp. there’s no rush in it
