Mel Watts – The Modern Mumma has been sharing the ups and downs and realities of parenting while being pregnant with her fourth child on her Facebook page and she’s got quite a following. However, her recent post about sex (or lack of) during pregnancy has proven super popular. She’s clearly touched a chord there, with more than 3,000 likes and plenty of comments and shares. Why? Because it’s raw and real and relatable…and FUNNY!

Right off the bat – she’s blunt and honest:

“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.”

    Well…I’m 10 weeks pregnant, not sure if its safe to have sex so we are abstaining just to be extra safe, I know this might be a bit more cautious that required but don’t want to take chances as this is our first child. Anyone experience please share your views on this?
