The blood flow to your nether regions greatly increases making them more sensitive and swollen then usual. Some people find this great others not so much. It does get better once everthing is healed.

Not sure what trimester you are in, but first trimester was not good for me in the bedroom.  2nd trimester is much better.

My sex drive all but disappeared once I got pregnant. I am 24+ weeks and it still has not returned. I always hoped I’d be one of those women who couldn’t get enough once pregnant, but it’s not turning out that way at all. And now that I’m further along, I tend to get really swollen sometimes from the blood flow. It is more than uncomfortable; it’s painful sometimes. We went from 3 times a week before pregnancy, to once a week until a month or so ago. If we get to it every other week, I think it’ll ba a miracle.  

Just know you’re not alone.

@sunny-day73: I asked my doctor about it after the first time it happened, and she just said that my blood flow is really cranking right now and instead of it making sex feel awesome (because the area is fuller), it’s making it painful. Sometimes if I even stand for a long time it feels like the whole area starts swelling. I am carrying super low, though, and my baby loves to hang out as far down in my pelvis as he can most days, so I might have a bit more pressure in my nether regions than a lot of women. It’s been the only thing that’s really upsetting me during this pregnancy.

Sex has been non-existent my entire pregnancy. It’s been super uncomfortable physically for me and mentally for him. I think I mind less than him because my sex drive is kaput but his isnt.

I normally have a very high sex drive, so I’m hoping it goes back to normal too. : We had a good sex life before I got myself in the family way.

No,it won’t…atleast not for 5 or 6 years. Maybe if you get a nanny and don’t breastfeed. But then agian breastfeeding freaking rocks, so it’s like a caught 22. Maybe you two could take up a hobby or something that doesn’t evolve your genitals,but make sure its something you can take an infant to, so no fencing you crazy kids….
