Yep, I hear ya! Totally normal and I’m afraid it continues after the birth (for me at least) and if you’re breastfeeding I heard it can prolong it. Nature is quite clever really, now you’re expecting you don’t need to try to get pregnant any more so why bother Haha. Try not to worry about it and enjoy your pregnancy!

lol yeah that’s pretty normal.  Biologically/evoluationarily…why would you need a sex drive when you’re already pregnant?  It’s also normal if you’re breastfeeding.  Nature’s birth control.  Not only do you not have a period, or a wonky cycle that isn’t conducive to pregnancy, you don’t want it anyway.  Sorry!  It’ll get better…eventually.

Totally normal!! first trimester fatigue is no joke. Apparently it gets better in the 2nd tri and you want it like crazy! At 11 weeks I’m still waiting for that to happen.

Aussies:  How far along are you? I was the same early on and then between 2nd tri to the end it was the total opposite!! My Darling Husband started turning me down every so often which had never ever happened before. LOL so things can look up towards the end!

I was a total slug from weeks 8-12. It was all I could do to make it through a day at work. Then i was nauseaus all evening. So, yeah, not a lot of sex. Luckily, it all got much better around 13-14 weeks and I’m now mostly the same as pre-pregnancy at week 25. So hang in there! It gets better!

I’m 28 weeks and my sex drive has JUST started to pick back up! It was really non-existant for awhile. Thankfully, Darling Husband is super understanding. But I’m looking forward to getting it back! I miss it!

Oh yeah – it will come back – i remember we were doing it every day and then the first trimester i think if we did it 3 times the whole time it would have been alot.  it comes back again after the fatigue goes away and is super fun and you have to get creative to work around the bump – but then  3rd trimester – gone again 🙂

I’m 30w so my husband and I haven’t had sex in about 3 weeks. I have 0 desire to lol. Oh well. It’s not that fun attempting to have sex with a tire around your waist. I get really out of breath, my back starts to hurt, I can’t get in many positions; it’s anything but sexy.

I’m 31 weeks and I never got my libido back in the 2nd trimester. It happens for some and not for others. Luckily my Darling Husband has a low sex drive anyways so it hasn’t been a problem for us.
