Quite a few: In the second trimester, the baby continues to grow, making room for itself by pushing your organs out of the way. So your abdomen will enlarge, and towards the third trimester other problems like hemorrhoids, heartburn and back pain may result. "what to expect when expecting" is one of many good prenatal education books to consider reading for more information.

Can I take a home pregnancy test during the 1st trimester of pregnancy?

Dr. Megan Bird
Obstetrics and Gynecology 19 years experience
Yes: Home pregnancy tests are usually reliable after you miss one period (when you would be 4-5 weeks pregnant). They aren't perfect however. If you think you are pregnant, you should talk to your doctor about a blood test to confirm (or deny!).

What are the best sex positions in the third trimester?

Most comfortable.: Often this is some variation of a side by side. These are more comfortable for the mom-to-be and have shallower penetration which puts less pressure on the cervix. Sometimes, depending on the patient and the pregnancy, it can be a challenge to find a comfortable position.

How does a man's sex life change with aging?

Lowered function: While sexual potential can carry through into quite older age, the erectile capacity and ejacualate volume decrease with age. Some lose desire which is entirely psychological. Note the many products on the market for this and the destruction of endangered animals for this (rhino horns, bear gall bladder stones, etc.).
