Expecting parents everywhere will always wonder what their little one feels when they are getting it on, if anything. It is so common, that a lot of men my husband included wonder if they are hurting the little one every time they have intercourse. The problem is, we may never know exactly what happens to that little bean, or what they are thinking.
Many people are quite confident that your baby has no recollection or awareness of what is going on with mom and dad. Also, maybe lucky for us, they are way to young to place any judgement on what you are doing Phew! A lot of couples usually mom do not feel so amorous in their third trimester, as they are in a constant state of uncomfortableness. A lot of dads also become uninterested due to the fact that they think their baby is watching them! Here are 15 things that the baby is most likely to feel while mom and dad boink!
Advertising [x] 15 Is There Pain? The biggest concern that couples face when they want to become intimate while pregnant is if it will cause actual physical harm to the baby.
The answer is most likely no. Unless, you are practicing in some Fifty Shades of Grey activities, sex is very unlikely to cause any harm to the baby, no matter how big he or she is. Women need to remember that their cervix is covered by a thick mucous plug which acts as a great barrier to prevent anything from entering the uterus.
They also must remember that their baby is in a very protective amniotic sac that is filled with fluid. When things are submerged in water, they become weightless. Just imagine how you feel when you are floating on water.
Advertising [x] It is very common for expecting parents to feel like they are being watched by their unborn baby. It also creates a very well, but not needed, sense of embarrassment. It is like we already want to protect our child from seeing anything that is not appropriate and that can be severely damaging through their later life.
In one aspect, congratulations! Your maternal instincts have kicked in as you are already worried about your little one. On another hand, this is not something you need to worry about. It is so dark in the womb, and while we may imagine that they are scrunched down and using your cervix like a peep hole, we can assure you they have no idea what is going on. Hearing develops fairly early in the womb, so they gain the ability to hear the world outside them fairly early. They love when mom and dad talk to them, and they will usually respond with some punches and kicks.
Here is the negative, they will most likely hear the action going on in the outside world. Unless, you and your partner have the ability to be super quiet, they will hear every moan and murmur.
The good news is that while they will hear noises, they have no idea what those noises mean, they are that innocent! Until now, that is. They feel every skip, trip and bump.
We are all adults here, so I think we all know that when two people are intimate, there is usually an element of movement, usually the up and down kind. This is bound to make that baby bump move and shake. This the baby does feel. Like I said earlier, it has no way of knowing what is going on.
It probably just thinks mom went horseback riding or on a bumpy car ride. Everything mom feels, the baby feels. The baby feels if mom is mad, sad, or happy. This would lead us to believe that the baby can also feel if mom has the big O.
When a woman reaches the big O status, it is no secret that she feels good. She feels happy and relaxed. So, if you are following me here, the baby also will feel happy and relaxes. When a woman has an orgasm, there I said it — we are all adults here. Her brain releases Serotonin, which is known as the happiness hormone. Serotonin is the chemical in your brain that regulates your mood, and makes you feel happy.
When it is released at such a high level, it works to make mom super happy! Other activities that release Serotonin is sitting in the sunlight, exercising, and having a good cheat meal!
Another wonderful thing that happens when a mother has an orgasm is the brain releases oxytocin. This is why people suggest woman who want to induce labour should try having sex to bring on contractions.
Sadly, this has not been proven to be effective, and it will only work if your body is ready to go into labour on its own. The slight squeeze your baby will feel will also not harm them, it will just feel like they are getting a little bit of a hug.
Here we are going to address the concern a lot of parents to be men specifically have about intercourse when pregnant. That he will some how poke the baby in the head. It can be a valid concern, as sometimes if a women is far enough into the pregnancy, it may feel like the baby is about fall out.
You would also need to penetrate the amniotic sac, which is sometimes difficult for doctors to do.
