3rd Trimester

TMI, but how often are you having sex?

Since being pregnant, my husband and I have both become ... nuns. He's too afraid of throwing me into labor and I just find it flat out akward and uncomfortable.  I wanted to try again tonight and totally got shot down for those exact reasons. ego flop, anyone? Is this happening to anyone else?

Re: TMI, but how often are you having sex?

  • We haven't had sex since I was about 14 weeks. We plan on doing it like bunnies starting Tuesday, when I'm full term. :) We just decided to abstain because of some past experiences regarding sex and pregnancy.

  • Due to pelvic joint pain, we have been nuns since i was 14 weeks along.
  • DH would love to do it all the time - he's not scared at all!!  But I find it uncomfortable so it's only happening about once a week.
  • We don't have sex to often. Mostly cause i just feel unattractive and just gross. But when we are both in the mood (we have to wait till DS goes down) we end up both to tired and say maybe tomorrow.
  • Thank God we aren't the only ones. I feel so guilty though! Should I be stressed he might cheat (he is NOT the cheating type.... but I still worry).
  • Once, maybe twice a week, and it usually is in the morning because I am too tired at night!

  • We have managed to every couple of weeks...we have both just been so stressed with moving and getting the house ready that we are too exhausted at the end of the day. But now that we are all moved in we can't wait to get back to it!!

  • Once every couple weeks if were lucky.

  • 2/week for the last 3-4 months? 

    Much more than DH ever expected. :) 

    Baby Boy Born 3.15.11. 8lb 9oz, 21.75in. 6 month stats: 20lb 11oz (92%tile), 30.12in.(100%tile - who knew it went over 99th? Which means 100% of other 6 month olds are shorter than mine!)
  • I have asked about cheating and my DH said that because i'm pregnant he understands but if it was this way when i wasn't he prob would cheat or get rid of me. So i wouldn't worry at all. He is just worried and doesn't want to harm you or the baby. So in a way its sweet..... i guess 
  • We didn't have pretty much any sex during the first 25 or so weeks because I was constantly throwing up. After that it took awhile to get back into the swing of things but even then was just a couple times a week maybe. Lately with trying to get things moving we've been having sex at least every day.

  • what's sex? Crying What is it with the 14wk mark? I think that was the last time we did too. Same reasons as the OP, he is scared to death to do something to put me into early labor. SIGH......

    Nice.

  • This happened to me the other night and I was devestated!

    I told my H how I felt today and he explained that he is not initiating lately because he knows how uncomfy I am and said he wants to leave it up to me for when I feel like it, turns out the night I got turned down he had a stomach ache, so needless to say we did it this afternoon.

    Um, wow.  How generous of him to give you a break from your duties while you carry his child.  Tongue Tied

    We were having sex at least twice a week for most of this pregnancy.  In the last two weeks, it's dropped to once a week.  My hip pain has been disruptive to our routine!

  • This post makes me feel like a nun, too....but even when I am not pregnant!

    We were usually only about 1x a week since DS was born two years ago.  Sex was still painful and uncomfortable since he was born. I am dreading that again with this LO.

    I think week 20 was when I put the moratorium on it. It was just too uncomfortable!

  • 2 or 3 weeks ago was the last time, and the motion of it made me sick quite suddenly, right on BF's face. I'm dealing with 3rd trimester all day sickness, so we are done until after LO is here.

  • My husband would love to have sex all the time, but I just haven't been up to it.  It would be like a gazelle banging away at an elephant.  Not cute, since I'm the elephant.

  • We had sex two weeks ago. I was put on bedrest the same day. I'm not allowed to have sex until I'm full term. I'm not on bedrest anymore but in order for me to stay that way I can't have sex.

    Up until then we had sex about once a week.

  • Once a week at most.  A little depressing as newlyweds, but at least it's somewhat preparing us for the weeks after delivery when sex is totally off-limits!

  • Once a week, sometimes twice. 
  • about once a week. i'm really not worried about going into labor from sex. it's the furthest thing from my mind when i finally decide that i'm up for it.

  • The last time was somewhere mid-2nd trimester. I am trying to pump myself up for "full term sex", but I am so incredibly uncomfortable and feeling very unsexy right now, so I'm not sure how that will go lol.

  • I would go psychotic if we abstained that long.... that being said starting early January when I got put on bed rest we only do it like once a week or so b/c he views me as "so breakable" and now it's just flat out awkward and hysterical when we do it LMAO!

  • Sorry to be "that girl" but, honestly, we are doing it about 4 - 6 times a week. The whole pregnancy.
