It was harder for me to O while I was near the end of my pregnancy. I still had a pretty good sex drive though.

I didn’t have a sex drive (and don’t again)

The only thing that changed for us, was the larger my belly got the more creative we had to become with positions. Our libido didn’t increase or decrease, stayed about the same.

And as far as your husband’s sex drive skyrocketing since he found out you are pregnant – I read somewhere that many men are more attracted to their wives when they are preggrrs. Something to do with you letting off a bunch of pheromones due to your raging hormones, and being VERY “womanly” by carrying his child.

Mine is pretty dead. My OB said no sex the 1st trimester due to it causing spotting, etc. We just had sex for the first time a couple of days ago. It was fine, def. not the same as before and actually hurt. My husbands sex drive only went up b/c he was so use to getting it every other day and them bam … nothing, haha.

My drive went out the window. Sex actually hurts now! Not sure if im just more sensitive down there or what, but its painful in the beginning.

Mine is pretty nonexistent, between feeling tired and just kinda unattractive. Plus it has felt pretty uncomfortable the few times we have done it (not sure why). My husband has been understanding and let me indicate when I’m interested, but I feel badly because I just haven’t been…

loden:  My husband’s libido has skyrocketed too since we found out! Meanwhile my libido has disappeared and I feel so bad 🙁 I’m also terrified to have sex until things get a little more permanent in there because in the past, having sex close to when AF was supposed to show up pretty much brought it on, so I’m so scared it could somehow cause a miscarriage this early… I’ve just been trying to suck it up and please my husband in other ways to keep him happy.

Changed for the better. I was having a hard time hitting the O before getting pregnant, now it’s easy ( TMI!!). It’s great, but the last week, I’ve been too tired. haha

I hasn’t changed for us, we still have sex the same amount as we were before I was pregnant, it’s just gotten interesting as my belly has gotten larger. Definitely can’t do it while I’m on my back, too much pressure on my organs. Everything else is great though.

I’m 20 weeks and 4 days. Dh wants sex alot he loves my bump and how my body is changing. I was so tired my first trimester I could barely think about it. But now I love it, although it took us a while to get into a groove with new positions due to my belly.

I’d say that my libido is a bit lower because I can go longer periods without thinking sex at all and when DH initiates, it takes longer for me to catch up to him, but I just play along until I do and then it’s pretty great for both of us. Now that I’m in my 3rd trimester, we’ve definitely had to get more creative with positions.

My drive was dead first trimester and boosted big time in the second trimester.  My husband’s is the same- sky high all the time. Hahah I bet he wishes TTC took longer than one month!

loden:  It faded in the first trimester, skyrocketed in the second and third. Then completely plummeted once LO was here.

First child: Little change in sex drive. We had to get creative with our positions as the pregnancy went on (usually me on my side) but we managed.

Other children: morning sickness + tiredness from looking after the other kid(s) affected my sex drive a lot.
