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. Either way, you do you: Sex during pregnancy is perfectly safe, although doctors do recommend that you skip missionary position come the third trimester, since lying on your back can reduce the amount of blood going to your baby and put strain on your hips.

Click through for their picks and insights on how your libido can shift as you're waiting for baby.
