There are many reasons why sex during pregnancy can be more enjoyable, even if you are doing it less. There is an increase in vaginal lubrication, engorgement of the genital area helps some people become orgasmic for the first time or multi-orgasmic, and the lack of birth control. If you've been trying for a while, a return to sex could now be for pleasure as opposed to making a baby.

On the other hand, there are reasons why sex might not be as pleasurable during pregnancy: fear of hurting the baby, nausea, fatigue, awkwardness. Being on your back may be uncomfortable so you might want to explore different sexual positions during pregnancy.
