I always heard pregnant women are particularly horny, but I’ll be 11 weeks tomorrow and much to my husband’s dismay I have absolutely NO interest in sex and haven’t since I got pregnant. Before I got pregnant we used to do it around 4X per week (and this was a surprise baby so that was not our motivation). Now it’s like once every other week and even then I just do it because I feel bad for Darling Husband. He doesn’t pressure me and says he understands but I still feel bad lol. I do have morning sickness so I’m hoping once that goes away (it better LOL) my libido will return.
What was your sex drive like during pregnancy? Has anyone else experienced total disinterested that changed after the first trimester? Is the thing about pregnant women being horny a load of bologna?

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!!!
