@Duckie731: yup, I know it obviously goes back to normal (since people have more than one kid usually :P) but it’s almost crazy that I NEVER hear people talk about their issues with sex after baby.
I wish things weren’t so hush hush and more women were informed beforehand about the changes that would occur. Hell, my cousin didn’t even realize that she could get minor tears from childbirth and she found out when she was pregnant. No one talks about the dirty stuff.

@princesslettuce14: Best piece of advice is to keep a little mystery about what goes on “down there.” If he’s going to be in the delivery room with you that’s fine but I would make sure he stays up near your head and not look anywhere near the business end during delivery. Otherwise, it’s all about your attitude and how you get back your mojo after the baby.
Yes, there will be late nights and nights without sleep but you have to make time for intimacy. Pencil it in on the calendar regularly for a while. The biggest part is making time for each other and feeling sexy and confident in yourself.
I just had surgery on my lady parts and we have talked about them pretty much every day for the last few weeks as a result (we can’t do the deed for another two weeks while I heal.) I joked with my FH last night about it. Then I got serious and told him we were going to have a marathon of dirty videos and private time as soon as I get the all clear from the doctor. I told him we needed it in order to re-sexy my lady parts.

@beachbride1216: I totally agree with the mystery. It’s my belief that being the “catcher” in the delivery room sort of changes how men see their wives sexually. I’m just praying that since I have a high libido on the pill, that my libido won’t be too much affected by pregnancy hormones and the like.
