We do. In the beginning, we were keeping up our normal pace, but then the nausea and all that came and we slowed down some. For a bit, I was also having issues with my sex drive, like I’d want to logically and emtionally have sex but my body was just not cooperating, but that’s starting to fade now that I’m getting further along into my second trimester (am 16 weeks, 1 day) and we’re starting to have sex more often again, though not like we were before, maybe 1/3-1/2 as much.

At first yeah, and then once the belly came it slooowwwwwwwed down. Have you ever seen “Knocked Up”? Well the sex scene in it, really transpired to my real life experiences having sex with a baby belly.

@lucyh2bee:  I’m only 8 weeks, but my sex drive has gone from very slow to WOWZA in a hurry, LOL! I’m pretty happy about it (and obviously so is DH) 😉  I guess we’ll see how it works once I get a bump, but for now, it’s great!

In both of my pregnancies, my sex drive went through the roof. I wanted it day and night. I pretty much had sex until the day I gave birth. I was also much younger.  I just got re-married and we are going to start TTC in a few months. 

My sex drive rigth now is on an ultimate high (maybe because I am in my 30’s), I wonder if it will stay the same or go even higher after I get prego. I feel sorry for my Darling Husband if that happens. lol

My drive is much higher while I’ve been pregnant. I know that isn’t the case for everyone, but that’s how it is for me. Things were a little slow while I was feeling queasy in the first trimester, and now that my belly is pretty big we’re having to be a little careful with the positioning, but other than that all sytems are a GO.

I know friends with toddlers who haven’t had sex since they conceived… yep. Not kidding. However that really isn’t the norm. I still wanted it just as much if not more than before. Belly never caused a big problem, we just got creative and I never got huge either.

I wish we would have sex more…I’m 34 weeks pregnant and our sex life dropped off a cliff. I had bad morning sickness and was always tired, now Darling Husband is afraid he is going to poke her in the head ever since the Dr. said when she does my cervix checks she will check to see if she can poke on babies head. Well Darling Husband says “Well if the Dr. can poke her head with her finger then I most def can, and no way am I letting that happen that’s so weird” soooo….yeah. lol hopefully it picks back up…I’d really like to do it more before she comes, we will see!

We still did it about the same amount when I was pregnant. It can be done! t does take some creative thinking towards the end of pregnancy though. Wink

mine definitely isn’t as high. we are still doing it, but not as often. DH’s schedule also has been coming into play, so i think that’s part of it as well.

Oh my gosh, we’ve only done it once since we conceived.  I am so sick and tired I can’t even THINK of sex.  (My worst nauseous times are morning and night so that is a little inconvenient.) Dh hasn’t complained since he knows how ill I am though. He isn’t super needy in that department anyway and would be fine with once a week.  Of course, once a month is where we are at right now. LOL.  I sure hope my libido comes back once  I stop wanting to puke all the time. Oh I should mention I’m 7 1/2 weeks.

Rare occurance over here…too many tummy problems!  We’re not opposed to it, but just fact of life is I’m rarely in the mood, and Darling Husband doesn’t push the issue.

At first there was no change in my sex drive.  Now, I feel so bad for my husband – my sex drive is non-existant.  I literally can’t even fake it.  Plus, I’m so uncomfortable that the only time that works for us is first thing in the morning.  Losing my sex drive has to be the worst pregnancy side effect.  I can’t wait for it to come back.

Initially, I kind of felt unsexy for a bit. At about 8 or 9 weeks, I started wanting it a lot more. I started having sexy thoughts more often and would intiate sex regularly. So it kind of dropped and then increased!
