Sorry if tmi but I have to ask… Ever since I got pregnant I have completely lost all desire to have sex! With my first pregnancy I couldn’t get enough.
At first my boobs were extremely sensitive then that seemed to spread to the rest of my body…now my whole body is so sensitive just someone touching my shoulder makes my skin crawl! I can’t take it! If my husband trys to start a hanky panky session I either flintch away twitching or I just start laughing because it tickles. I can tell its starting to really bother him and I can’t seem to find a way to explain what’s going on without making him think he makes my skin crawl haha! Help! has anyone else had this problem?

Seriously, DH is pretty bummed because I’ve lost some of my drive too! Sore boobs, sensitive skin, nausea and heartburn have really cut into what I thought was supposed to be some of the best sex of our lives!

Ummmm, yeah, I heard a lot of women become super sexual during pregnancy, but it was the absolute opposite for me (at least until those last few weeks). I think it hurt my husband’s feelings, but he understood that I really didn’t have control over it. And I tried at least once a week, which I think helped. In fact, when I just tried to relax I ended up enjoying myself, too. 🙂 Of course, I don’t think I could do it more often than once a week, lol.

Until about 15 or 16 weeks, I would have rather had a pelvic exam than sexy time.
(Ok, that is not true, but at least you dont’ have to act excited about the exam)
Like Mrs. Spring, I tried to make sure we still did it about once a week, maybe even a little more, and once we got into it, I enjoyed it, but I was never in the mood to initiate.
Now I’m at 20 weeks and I have to try really hard not to scare my husband and assault him every two hours. So, um, I’m spending a lot of time getting to know myself…

Haha I’m so glad you mentioned the ticklish thing. It’s not quite as bad now but for awhile there I was soooooooo sensitive to touch, it was so bad that when I’d feel his five o’clock shadow on my face I’d bust out laughing because it tickled so much. We’ve basically just tried to take everything in stride and chalk it up to pregnancy is weird. We still make time for sexy time, even if it means me busting out in laughing fits sometimes.

Yes! I had a brief period in the second trimester when I was up for it, but for me I didn’t feel too sexy so I had trouble acting too sexy!

I had a brief time during the 2nd trimester when I had the best orgasms ever! That was pretty much the only time that I liked it during my pregnancy. The rest of the time it was pretty much just for him.

Nope, the reverse. Perhaps because of the renewed intimacy/ excitement/ looking at my husband as someone’s dad?
