How can I stay intimate with my partner while I'm pregnant?

ANSWER

If your doctor has limited your sexual activity, or if you are not in the mood for intercourse, remember to take time for intimacy with your partner. Being intimate does not require having intercourse -- love and affection can be expressed in many ways.

Remind yourselves of the love that created your developing baby. Enjoy your time together. You can take long romantic walks, enjoy candle-lit dinners, or give each other back rubs.
