Bees, not kidding, ever since I got my BFP, my Darling Husband cannot keep his hands off of me. This normally would be welcomed, but right now I just really can’t get into it.
He’s borderline obsessed with my slightly swelled boobs, but they are sore and it’s uncomfortable when he grabs them. I also feel absolutly 0 sexyness right now.
I’ve tried twice since we found out I was pregnant to DTD, but both times he could tell that I just wasn’t into it, and it kinda killed the mood. I’m all for “fake it until you make it”, but it’s hard when you’re tired, achy, and a little over-protective of your hoo-ha area because of general “what if” paranoia.
Any other bees experience this? Is there anything I can do? My fear is that he will equate this rejection with the pregnancy and he will resent me/the baby. I am so glad that my Darling Husband loves me and finds me sexy, but how can I strike a balance without hurting his feelings?

This will happen with 99% of men.
Men have a need to reproduce.

Pregnant women are sexy.
However, you might want to inform him when you hurt or when you’re sore. Compromise that you can be naughty when you’re not in a lot of pain, and tell him when that is.

Yep, pregnancy = titty fairy’s arrival 😉 I just force Darling Husband to be super gentle. I don’t think he’ll be as into me when I get huge, though. But I told him once I’m in 2nd tri (when supposedly YOU get pretty ravenous for some lovin’) he better oblige since I’m sucking it up and dtd with him now when I feel like crap. 😛

@cowgirlace: hahaha this is so true…I was totally off Darling Husband for the first tri of my pregnancy with Dirty Delete…roll on second tri and I became a complete nympho…OP, it will get better. Explain to him that there are hormones beyond your control which make sex pretty undesirable right now, but before long they will be his best friends 😉 I remember Darling Husband saying AGAIN? Seriously? Babe, I’m just too tired. Hehe, fun times.
