    Maybe during pregnancy you feel bloated, tired, and nauseated, and sex is the furthest thing from your mind. Maybe you're at a point at which hormones are sending your libido into overdrive, and you can't get enough.

    Even if you're raring to go, though, intercourse can become uncomfortable or logistically difficult later in pregnancy, which is why we tapped sex therapist Vanessa Marin to give us pointers on the best positions for people who are expecting. Click through for her picks, as well as her insight on how your libido can shift as you're waiting for baby.
