lalanono:  We don’t have sex as often now that I’m pregnant, but honestly the sex is much better. I’m much more sensitive down there and maybe a little swollen, so I feel things more. Most of the time my sex drive is competing with fatigue, heart burn, nausea and a long to-do list, so what used to be a few times a week thing has dropped to maybe once or twice a week.

lalanono:  never been pregnant myself, but I have a friend that didn’t want him to touch her for the entire 9 months she was pregnant (before and after the pregnancy they’ve had s very healthy sex life).

I’m three months pregnant at the moment and while I was too tired for a week or two during my first trimester, I’d have to say our sex drive has been great still. I dunno if that’ll change the bigger I get, but so far so good. Also, pregnancy sex is awesome. You really are more sensitive down there. 🙂

lalanono:  I had NO sex drive the entire time I was pregnant. Like none. It sucked and I felt really bad for my husband, but it was actually uncomfortable. I hope yours returns in the second trimester!!!

My sex drive ebbs and flows. Some days I want it constantly sometimes nothing for a week stretches. Sex is definitely better though

I’m 7 weeks and I don’t want my husband to touch me. He tries to grab my chest but it’s sore or smack my bottom which just makes my nausea worse. I feel a little bad for him but then again he’s doesn’t have morning sickness. Hopefully it’ll get better in second trimester

I’m also 7 weeks and sex is very uncomfortable. I believe it’s because I’m “swollen” and it makes him not fit right. I hope I turn into the super horny pregnant wife soon. Also it was weird for me mentally because the a whole time I was thinking “there’s a baby in there and I’m doing this!” Strange!!

Mine has been all over the place.  At times, sex has sounded an awful lot like the offer of a root canal with no anesthesia.  At other times, it’s a fresh baguette to someone who’s been on the Atkins diet.  Now at 30 weeks I really am not so interested in sex (again).  I’ve also had complications no one told me about, like vaginal dryness, frequent yeast infections for a good 2 months, and discomfort with sex.  Angles / positions that used to be amazing now can be painful or extremely uncomfortable. Ive developed asthma, and I literally get short of breath now too.  And I can barely breathe out of my nose due to pregnancy related fun, so we don’t even make out anymore.

Hopefully after delivery everything will go back to normal.  Hopefully.

lalanono:  I think it rampEd up the most during the second trimester, but pretty much the whole time I was insatiable. Plus, between hubby finding it so sexy and all your nerve endings, skin, etc… being so sensitive it was the best!

Sadly I haven’t had the sex drive I did before pregnancy. We used to do it every night and I’m not exaggerating. It’s really weird and I hope after I have the baby sexy time will amp back up again.

Mine was non-existent for the first trimester, but I’m early in the second trimester now and I think it’s making a come back! The fatigue and constant indigestion does not help!!!
