During the middle phase of pregnancy from about weeks until about 28 to 30 weeks , many women find they have a renewed interest in sex, as they feel physically better and more energetic. The pregnant belly is not very big yet, making you feel relatively comfortable compared to later in the pregnancy. There are now less concerns about miscarriage or contraception and both partners have usually come to accept the pregnancy, if there was initial ambivalence. Women often feel more relaxed now, with sexual arousal and sensuality often becoming heightened. The nipples can be extremely sensitive to touch, being either more sensuous or perhaps uncomfortable. The breasts are larger and sometimes tender, so handle with care!
