So……need others thoughts please! Last night was the first time DH and I had sex after finding out we are pregnant (2 weeks ago). It was not that great. You could tell that we both just wanted to get it over. I kind of felt grossed out by the idea of doing it. I think he felt the same way. We put on happy faces and went for it anyway. Will it get better? Did anyone else go through this? I plan on speaking with the doctor about it next week.

it will get better, you have to get past the mental aspect that there is a baby in there. Also, horomones make things feel diffrently at first, but it does get better. and congratulations!

It doesn’t really get weird till you can see the baby move. I’d encourage you to not let your minds get the best of you – the baby is still tiny now.
Towards the end it will actually be physically uncomfortable (not necessarily the sex but just moving in general) and then you have to wait 6 weeks after birth before getting a Dr.’s okay. – so you might want to enjoy it while you can.

It gets better…
The first trimester you’re lucky if you even want to really… hormones aren’t very nice and I remember being pretty tired.
Towards the end it get’s pretty uncomfortable again and you can’t even lay on your back anymore…
Which is not recommended after the 5th month anyways…
I think it’s usually harder for guys to get over the whole “there’s a baby in there”…. “I’m not going to poke it am I” than for girls but sex during pregnancy is totally okay!
And is even recommended to help start labor, since semen helps soften the cervix when it’s time…. (inconjuction with other hormones) <– don’t worry it won’t make you start labor early of anything…. there’s alot that goes into that
I would just keep open communication about it and enjoy the process… and like @camrie said…. you don’t get any till the Dr okays it after you deliver so get on it while you can!

@runsyellowlites: Just please remember that you shouldn’t have anything in the vagina if you suspect your water has broken!!! 🙂
I had the opposite problem. I wanted sex the entire first trimester, but I felt like crud so we really didn’t have much sex, and when we did DH was just so weirded out about it. We’re in the end of the second trimester now and we rarely have the energy to even think about sex, I’m still rarin to go most of the time, but I’m so tired that I don’t want to bring it up with DH. That and we have a lot of things to do around the house before the baby arrives. We are working on cleaning out the nursery tonight so we can buy paint. We’ll see what happens when DH gets home.
