    Currently 1-2x but I’m also 40 weeks pregnant!

    Before getting pregnant probably 3-4 or more just depending.

    you don’t have an option for less than once a week…and I’m really sad to be the one bringing that up 🙁

    It ranges a lot for us. Some weeks almost every night, and other weeks only 2-3 times. It depends on what is going on, how busy we are, etc. I know that sounds like a vague answer, but it’s true. Who seems to initiate also varies. We both have a tendency to get on “kicks” of initiating. Right now it is me more often, but not so long ago it was him. I think it is normal for these things to vary.

    Well, I’m 21 weeks pregnant, and my sex drive fluctuates as much as the rest of my hormones. It’s pretty sporadic for us right now…some weeks it might be 4-5 times, but then I don’t want to be touched for a week. Darling Husband just rolls with it, lol.

    Well, it kind of depends on the week. I would say average 3-4 or so. But some weeks when its crazy busy, less, some weeks its like every single day. Yay being newly weds!

    @luvalways86:  Our sex life took a major nosedive after we got married too. I really don’t know what it is, but definitely haven’t had any of that great newlywed sex everyone is always talking about lol

    Well my fiance works midnights 6 days a week, off Wednesday. My daughter and I are pretty much on a day time/afternoons schedule. So even if we don’t necessarily feel like it, we do it on his night off because we know we will regret it if we don’t. We have a babysitter every other Saturday night so we usually do it then too.

    It sucks sooo bad having to be intimate on schedule! When we get married 8/25 it will be 8 years that we’ve been together and our relationship is still very fun & lively for being what my friends call “an old married couple”!! But yes, I for sure want it more with him… can’t wait til the honeymoon lol! So cliche’ huh 😉

    Please don’t feel alone because you are so not!

    @luvalways86:  and how often does HE do his hair and wear make-up??? Teehee – sorry to be cheeky, but I hope that this wouldn’t be playing a big role in how often you have sex.

    We are fairly even in initiating action in our house (I selected 2 times a week, could be more like 3 – but that is an average, can be anywhere from 0-5 times a week), but there are certainly times when one of us is more interested than the other for weeks at a time. Our sex life has picked up since being engaged and married, but mostly because I went off the pill (who knew it had such an effect on your libido) and he has been much happier at work and healthier in general.

    @hamikay:  Seriously going off the pill improved our sex life soooo much! I couldn’t believe how much it killed my sex drive until I was off it for a couple of weeks. That was the best decision ever.

    msfahrenheit, I’m with you. I need a monthly or bi-monthly option. I definitely want  A LOT MORE than he does. I’m not even kidding about that bi-monthly option. Twice this year. Twice. All together. Totally skipped February. Nothing for Valentine’s Day. Zip. Nada. I’m not even 30. He’s not even in mid-30s. Is it possible that he’s decided to go celibate for the wedding and forgot to tell me??

    Ok. Sorry. I’m repressed. It’s starting to make me crazy. lol

    @luvalways86:  In all of my experience (in my own relationships and talking with other close female friends-) women tend to want it more.  I think the idea that men want it more is somewhat a myth.

    It depends how busy we are!

    Typically once a week.  Granted – Darling Husband is out of town for the work week every week, so that certainly affects things.
