Mum gets real about pregnancy sex

People are loving her honesty

January 24 2019

An Australian mum is being praised for her honesty after sharing a frank post about “pregnant sex”.

Currently, 30 weeks pregnant, Mel Watts, the mum behind The Modern Mumma Facebook page revealed the reality of having sex while pregnant.

“You know there are some women who thrive when they're pregnant. They love a bit of loving from the big D and then there's people like me,” Watts wrote.

Watts says she has tried to embrace being “the best sex goddess ever when pregnant" - but the reality is quite different.

“Well, here I am.

Beach whaled AF.


Wearing a liner - not because I'm that kind of wet. 

I have a rash on my stomach from stretching skin.

My breasts are weapons they'll knock anyone out. 

Heavy breathing. 

My last shaving job was a touch a feel job. 

I'm filled with 10 fingers, 10 toes and all sorts of body parts that stick out.”

Most importantly and unsurprising, her husband is still attracted to her.

"He'd still happily call me beautiful and sexy. Like what is wrong with this man? I'm at my worst. I'm leaking, I stink, I moan and grown, I'm hairy and I reckon I'd have more sweat under my titties than he'd have in his gooch on the hottest summers day.

"And he still wants me. Maybe he's one of those people that like this kinda situation? Or maybe he is just an amazing, caring doting and a terrible liar partner of an over emotional stretched pregnant wife. Either way - I'll keep him."
