Lets talk about sex

Is this TMI? I'm kind of an open book so I hope this thread is ok to post.

DH had sex today for the first time in far too long. I've been too scared/not feeling sexy/etc to try.

I felt like a virgin today. Thank God for lube. DH has been so sweet and supportive.

Are you all still keeping up with that part of your relationship? Any tips? Any embarrassing stories?  

I am just so relieved I didn't feel her kick me during our time..I knew if I felt that I'd be done for.

Re: Lets talk about sex

  • It's been few and far between lately. LO is down low, so it's not comfortable, and it just weirds me out when he starts kicking mid-deed. Plus I end up w/ some pretty intense BH after, so....it's not great. I've been trying to find other ways to ::cough:: help DH out.

  • My SO is totally grossed out when it comes to having sex. I have showed him many articles saying how sex is safe at this time and even articles about what positions would be best. He won't do it... Very annoying. I never thought he would be this way, I hope it goes back to normal soon.

    A few times a week. It's wierd and awkward sometimes but it doesn't bother either of us. DD doesn't get active until after we DTD.
    Over a year of trying and 3 cycles of Clomid DS#1 arrived
    DC #2 on its way!

  • We're still DTD 1 to 2 times per week.

    One time we tried him on top for a minute or two and he apparently put too much pressure on my belly and I [unknowingly] peed the bed. Not quite a full bladder, but close. Since then we always put a towel down.

    Best advice? Go pee IMMEDIATELY beforehand [and of course afterwards, too].

  • Nope. Definitely not happening.

  • Last time we tried, I was on top and we both watched as LO shoved her elbow across my belly... We stopped shortly after. We both have a good humor so we just kind of giggled about it, we haven't tried again since. 

     ETA: I also get some serious BH after, last time we were able to "complete" the deed, I didn't move for a couple hours and was in tears... While FI was snoring in my ear.

    We did this morning and it was oddly great.  It's hurt so much after lately I haven't wanted to do anything or I fall asleep before he gets to bed ha ha.  He just took it really slow and made sure I was ready before we started anything which helped a lot.  Plus LO was sleeping still so that removed some of the awkwardness.  
  • We did a few times in 2nd tri, but it just weirded us both out.  It's been a while.  I'd like to try around 38/39 weeks though, see if it does anything.

  • We are at about 3 to 4 a week. I would probably be good with 1 or 2 but I think DH is thinking about 6 plus weeks of no sex afterwards and also heard in our birthing class that it can help stuff along. That was all the encouragement he needed.

    We used lube for the first time last night and wow what a difference. I still feel fat and rolly polley but we just kind of have fun with it and laugh at ourselves.
  • SO and I are still dtd at least every other day. It's just alot more work now and have to take things slower. But last night he said he felt like he was hitting a wall and it actually hurt him in some positions. Has this happened to any of you ladies?

    We have been pretty active but this morning was rough. It was like others said uncomfortable. The baby must have rolled in a ball or something bc my stomach was totally lopsided and there was a ton of pressure in the one area. That made sex not fun at all and DH totally picked up that i was not enjoying it. We switched positions a bunch and it just wasnt working for me. We eventually quit and I just helped him out if you know what I'm saying. I'm sure we will keep trying until it is just a total loss

  • I feel like it is about 2 to 3 times per week. I am trying to keep it up in hopes that it will help things along. It is awkward but DH is s sweety!
  • I can't even remember the last time we DTD! That long! It's really just too painful and he works late hours so I'm already dead to the world when he comes home. When we were able to doggy style worked. Though to me it felt like cow style. DH is very patient about it though and supportive. I honestly can't wait to DTD without all these crazy changes, hormones, and extra weight!

  • We've literally had sex 3 times since getting pregnant.  First tri we were super paranoid about 'disrupting' things and after that baby started moving and it kind of freaked DH out.  Now we just can't find a good position.  Guess it'll have to wait...

  • We had a rough patch where everything seemed awkward and painful. But it seems to be better now!

    Me on top, or, since we have an adjustable base, missionary still works as long as he doesn't lay on my belly.

  • We had sex this weekend...first time in weeks. My sex drive went waaaay down when I got pregnant and my DH hasn't initiated because he knows I feel uncomfortable. I sometimes feel guilty but he doesn't complain.  As soon as we finished LO started kicking me which was a little weird.  Sex definitely isn't a priority right now.

  • Very rare here...maybe once every other week. Will probably ramp it up at 38 weeks or so to help things move along and soften the cervix. Usually I'm on top. Feel like a beached whale though...lol. if baby moves then we get weirded out and stop usually. She is very low right now in posterior, head down position....so haven't tried in a while.

    I hate side lying positions. I don't know why, haha. So, it's either me on top or from behind. Honestly, from behind has been the most comfortable for me. It takes all the weight off my belly and there is no weirdness about either of us feeling the baby move in this position.

    Doggie, one of my legs up and the other between his two legs which is my favorite or side by side.  

  • We don't have sex much because I "feel like a virgin" every time, even with lube. So we usually just do other things. I found out the other day you can actually by the lube like they use at the doctors, so we may try that out.

  • Sex sounds like the most horrible thing ever to me right now... and DH isn't really pushing it, so I'm basically a born again virgin.

    This exactly.

    This is pretty much us, too..
  • The last time we had sex the baby had the hiccups almost the whole time. I couldn't get into it at all.

    These days I don't think I could even if I wanted to. Plus, hamburger lips.

    Even before pregnancy this happened with us, and it was more painful for me than him.

  • The only reason we will be sexin it up more often here in the next few weeks is due to the fact, it can help kick start labor.
