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!
