Hubby and I have had sex once since confirmation at the dr office that we are indeed expecting. That was about 3 weeks ago. I had been experiencing nausea and vomiting but it has improved since being prescribed anti nausea meds last week.
Am I the only one not having sex with hubby in first trimester?
I just talked with a friend who told me, she hasn’t had sex with her hubby since the conception!!! OMG. I can’t imagine, I know I am going to have to give it up soon, I couldn’t imagine how her man feels. She just laughed it off and said poor C%#(

don’t worry! once your first trimester nausea/exhaustion etc go away, you very well might find you have sex more often than before!! Ah those hormones…..although by the end it might taper off a bit as it just becomes too much work 🙂

We have the entire time – of course not as frequently once I started to get bigger (because I was just uncomfortable). Seriously if you’re not sick or don’t have doctor’s orders against it – take advantage while you still can – otherwise it will be a long haul.
I’m a week from my due date and while I’m not feeling wonderful I’m considering it because I know once the baby is born it’ll be at least 6 weeks! 🙂

Isn’t sex recommended late in pregnancy because it is a natural way to induce?

I didn’t vote.
I’m not because DH is deployed. We did a couple of times before he left but I was extremely nervous about it. My desire didnt really change during the first trimester. My sex drive has definitely increased in the second. I’m about to start the third and don’t really care either way. I’ve gotten used to not having it. ha it’s a little sad!

We did the night before Kayla was born because I had tried everything else to get her out. Sex is definitely the trick if your LO is running a little late! 🙂

At first, yes. But I found that it felt weird, so we slowed down… Then I found it good again and the nausea was leaving, so we started again… But then it made me bleed, and the doc said no sex for at least 3 weeks… Sooo… it’s off again (well for intercourse at least).
It’s a rollercoaster ride; but I do find that my sex drive is very low compared to usual and I do it more for him and also for me but because I want to want it.

Hopefully your nausea passes and youll be back to normal soon!
Last fall when I was pregnant, we had so much sex and it was the best sex we’ve ever had….ever. I cant wait to be pregnant again!

I did the 1st trimester, but the 2nd, it’s not been something I want. I’m starting to want it again now though, at 26wks, since I’m going into the 3rd trimester. Who knows? I just dread the 6wks after where I can’t have sex.

We are, but it’s not easy anymore! I’m 32 weeks and the belly is quite big. Finding good positions isn’t easy. That plus I just don’t feel as sexy as I used to because, well, the belly again! And she’ll kick a lot which I try not to let ruin the mood.
Like others I’m not looking forward to after the birth when you’re not allowed to do it so I try to keep up with our normal sex life.

My husband is the guy that is afraid of sex, as soon as I began really really showing. That’s fun :o/
I had a hormonal moment and decided he was repulsed by me, it could be the case but he (wisely) insisted this was not so. He’s not much of a researcher so he might not believe me when I tell him that it’s safe for the baby. However, I’m tired and have so much back pain, the drive is pretty minimal anyway. We didn’t have sex the first trimester either because the idea of, well, everything, made me sick! It’ll peak though, and you’ll be good to go… unless you’re married to my nutjob.
