@Serey:  Ours is absent. I feel bad because I know he wants to but I just feel so uncomfortable and I felt the baby kick one time. It really weirded me out.

Uh, we’ve had sex ONCE since we found out, 4 weeks ago. I am just so gross feeling and half the time nauseous. He hasn’t pushed me thankfully but yeah I am in NO mood to be feeling sexy right now and I’m not even showing. Just bloated and yucky.

Our has been great, it’s just now (at around 26 weeks) starting to get harder with the belly, (no pun intended). It’s less comfortable as far as positions go. But still good. All through my pregnancy I’ve had a really sex drive though.

@Serey:  Pfft, what sex life? We’ve been intimate twice in the past 2 months. I feel awful, but I’m so thankful that Darling Husband understands. I was feeling bloated, but now I’m actually showing and just feel fat, my skin is super sensitive to the touch (not in a good way), and I was always feeling nauseous but thankfully that’s gone. Hopefully those second tri hormones kick in next week like they’re supposed to!

It is no where near what it was. At first I was too sick to get into any type of mood, now unfortunatly it feels more like a chore. Any pressure on my bump is enough to make me want to punch someone.

I feel bad, Darling Husband still wants to do it all.the.time. I just don’t have the drive.

It’s common for it to drop, especially in the first trimester. Mine dropped a bit because of fatigue but picked back up in the 2nd trimester. Now in the 3rd it’s REALLY going! haha!

My sex drive definitely dropped in the first trimester, although it was only part physical and part that we had been so stressed about doing it all the time while we were TTC, that we basically needed a break.  Ever since then I’ve only felt like it every so often, but I try take advantage, for DH’s sake.  Now in the third trimester, the only position I can really do is me on top.  I appreciate that Darling Husband still wants it and is still attracted to me, but I really haven’t been nearly as into it as before.

I had zero desire in the beginning, but now I just want things back to normal…Darling Husband sure seems to be enjoying it, he says he finds it more “intense”….but to be honest, he’s become a little selfish in bed since I got pregnant….dont’ get me worng, he treats me like a princess, but seems like he might be a little weirded out over my body changing and is thus, skipping over important things and getting straight to the gold. LAME! He knows it too….I”m thinking of going on strike, lol.

@Serey:  First trimester I felt sick if I was jerked constantly so… it was no sex life although my SO wanted it. Then it went into extreme mode where I couldn’t get enough but My SO was weirded out with the belly. It was almost as if I was punishing him. He was even avoiding me sexually. At points I felt as if I was begging. Then the baby was born and I wanted no sex at all!! I was too tired and was a little freaked out over my post-baby body. I didn’t feel sexy. Things eventually wnet back to normal though.

It’s taken a dip lately.  I’m not in the mood and SO doesn’t seem to be either.  I think we’re both a little weirded out by the belly.  I can’t wait until things are back to normal, but I’m worried that it will either be a long time or it will never be the way it was.

Honestly, it is the last thing I feel like. I am just so tired every night. My poor darling husband. I try to make the effort once a week but that is still a big effort for me, I would very happily go without. I wish it would get better but as I am getting a bigger belly it is only getting more uncomfortable.

My sex drive increased except during the a few days of first trimester nausea. Unfortunatly, my husband’s not into it. Bah. I’ve tried to be as understanding/loving about it as the DH’s hopefully are to the ladies above.

I always had low drive at the end of my cycles pre-period (luteal phase), so we had sex maybe 1-2 times after my fertile window was over before finding out I was pregnant. Then I would guess I had sex *maybe* 6-8 more times in the first trimester, and I think those times were because I felt bad that we hadn’t for a while. I felt pretty gross, like a mild whole-body illness from morning sickness, was pretty crampy and felt a lot of round ligament pain due to a tipped uterus, and I had two yeast infections — or probably one that never went away.

I’m 15 weeks now, and my sex drive came back at about week 10-11. I have felt like orgasm is a LOT more intense since getting pregnant, which is fun but also weird. Pragmatically, I have no problem having pregnant sex, but I will admit that it is PRETTY STRANGE sometimes, and it does weird me out a little. I feel like I’ve had a lot of need for solo time in the mornings, but with my husband I really want him to take charge a lot more. I think it’s more difficult for me to get started, but once we get going it’s great.

I’m not really showing much yet, but he seems to like the changes that have taken place in my body a LOT. I’m hoping for many more weeks of good sex drive and hopefully no more chronic yeast infections.

We did it a few times until we got to about the beginning of the third tri & didn’t have it again until 10weeks pp!
