You Feel Like You Have the Flu
...Or at least a low-level one. What's up with that? Early in a pregnancy, some women feel nauseous all the time, have a higher body temp, and feel wiped out all the time-just like you do when you have the flu.

When you're giving him oral, slowly slide your mouth all the way down to the base of his penis (use your hand as a mouth extension if you need some assistance).

Go on a Food Crawl
Pick a spot in your neighborhood or someplace nearby that has a ton of restaurants (little, less trendy ones are the best). Start at one end of the area and work your way to the other, splitting apps, entrees, and desserts along the way.
Take Them Tubing
Hit up your local body of water for lazy river tubing. Most places will rent you a tube per person for a small fee, plus a cooler that you can pack with beer and food, and drop you at the top of a river. You and your couple friends can slowly float downstream while enjoying cold ones in a gorgeous setting.

It's a myth that guzzling lots of water makes you bloated. In fact, not hydrating often enough causes you to retain water underneath the skin's surface, giving you a puffy look. For the next 72 hours, cut out diuretics like caffeine and alcohol and sip six to eight glasses of H2O a day. Not only will you appear slimmer, you'll seem more toned, because your body will create a reserve of water below your muscles, pressing them out and adding definition.

Be Strategic With Accessories
- Slip on wedges instead of flip-flops. They'll optically slenderize and stretch your gams.

"What do you want me to do to you?"
Asking him what he needs from you proves you're open to changing things up. Also, if you're talking dirty for the first time with your guy, this phrase is a good way to ease into conversation and gauge how naughty he's ready to get.
"You're an amazing kisser."
Not only will this deepen intimacy during foreplay, but since guys are performance-oriented, positive feedback emboldens him, heightening his arousal.
"Your arms are so sexy."
Unlike women, guys don't often receive physical compliments, so telling him what you love about his bod is a powerful ego boost-and aphrodisiac.

Have Him Breathe Deeply
Get your man to do breathing exercises before you get it on, taking slow, deep breaths for five minutes to help him relax. This will help to lower his arousal arc and help him last longer. The best way to approach it: During foreplay face each other and "share" breaths (he breathes in; you breathe out). He should follow your lead.
Get Your O Early
Since penetration usually speeds things up for him, have your man bring you to orgasm during foreplay to put you both in a relaxed state and up the odds you'll finish together. Plus, once you O, it's easier for you to do it again.
Get Him Off Beforehand
Manually stimulate your man or give him oral until he orgasms before you get

Shoot From the Shoulder
Whether you're using your camera or smartphone, you don't want to have it in the frame. Instead, hold it away from you at shoulder level and twist your body toward it, pushing your opposite shoulder toward the camera. Then crop your other arm out of the pic.
Follow the Rule of Thirds
This is a little photography secret that most professionals use. Start by mentally dividing the frame into thirds. Instead of being in the middle of a picture, put yourself off-center, so that you either fall in the first ⅓ or ⅔s of the frame. It makes the shot look more interesting.
Get Other Stuff Into the Shot
On a gorgeous beach? Get the water behind you. At a cool concert? Shoot the stage in the background.
