Pregnancy makes me feel like I imagine a guy trapped alone on a submarine for thirteen months would feel when he got ashore and saw a naked woman for the first time.


Last night I went to sleep feeling a bit randy, shall we say.

Sometime before dawn I had a sexy dream and had an orgasm (not uncommon for me, but more common when I am pregnant). I haven’t had a dream orgasm since the No Sex rule was introduced – not that my dream self hasn’t tried. But dream TMD reminds me time and time again that I am not allowed to have orgasms this far into our twin pregnancy.

So, this orgasm. I woke up to my uterus contracting, hard. My entire bump sort of shrunk and went harder than the hardest thing you can imagine. I sleepily thought, Well, fuck. I’ve had an orgasm. Feel how hard my stomach is. Damn my dream self. I wonder if it will…. and then fell back asleep.

Woke up a few hours later and was pleased to feel my tum was back to its normal self. Interesting that I spend time lying on my side, fingertips against my bump, wondering how the fuck I am supposed to feel ‘tightenings’ when my bump is always the same.

(I do think I have painless Braxton-Hicks some evenings, when it feels like the bump has saran-wrapped itself to the babies, but not entirely positive…)

I think my dream-gasm showed me that if I have a strong contraction, there’s really no mistaking it. So that’s one good thing that has occured from my unconscious self getting jiggy. Bad unconscious self. You naughty, naughty girl.

    Ha!!! I remember when I was pregnant, my doctor gave me the no sex talk… I remember asking her if she was kidding. I always thought that sex during pregnancy was a good thing. Well I guess for those of us who actually achieve that beautiful, earth shattering, orgasm – sex during pregnancy isn’t good for those who are high risk. Makes me rethink the whole pregnancy thing. LOL

    Just catching up on your blog! LOVE IT! Don’t worry about the Braxton Hicks, when its the real thing you WILL know. Everyone told me that and I didn’t believe them, but they were totally right!

    I’m sorry about your no sex situation but this post made me laugh so hard I scared a cat. 🙂
