We all know that pregnancy is a product of sex, but how does sex fit into pregnancy?

Mel Watts is an Australian mother of three with baby number four on the way, chronicling her journey on her blog, The Modern Mumma.

On Monday, Watts wrote a popular post discussing that while she tries, her pregnant self has a hard time feeling frisky.

Pregnant intimacy- okay lets not get fancy pregnant sex. You know there are some women who thrive when they're...

"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," she writes.

Watts writes that the last times she was with-child, it made it hard to have a sexytime, and she vowed baby #4 would be different.

I'll embrace it - I said.
I'll thrive - I said.
I'll love him so much more - I said.
I'm going to be the best sex goddess ever when pregnant - I said.

The Modern Mumma candidly and hilariously describes how carrying a human makes it tough to be the "sex goddess."

Well here I am.
Beach whaled AF.
Sweaty.
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," she wrote, which, woah—pregnant people have twenty fingers and twenty toes on them.

Mel Watts thanks her husband for not putting any pressure on her—and making sure she still feel desired when she feels like a "beach whale."

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.

Watts floats whether her husband is "into this kinda situation," but concludes that "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."
