Plenty! In addition to loving sensual touch which could lead to stimulation of his entire genital area (penis, testes, and perineum - that stretch of skin between his genitals and anus), you could include oral sex. Unfortunately simultaneous oral sex is likely to be out due to your bump getting in the way! This last point mentioned your pleasure also - just because you can't have penetrative sex right now, doesn't mean that you can't be stimulated externally (orally, by hand, or with the help of a vibrator). A more traditional form of sex might also be you stimulating him with your genitals (without penetration) whilst sitting on top of him - pretty much rubbing your vulva over the length of his penis, you may also experience pleasure doing this and use lubricant to assist.
