SEX

Out of sheer curiosity is there anyone else NOT INTERESTED in sex. My hubby is super annoyed about it. This is baby number two for me and weve been intimate regularly....I'd say like twice a week.... But I am just not into it. I feel huge. I ache. Our DS in very busy in there and Im just like UGGGHHHHH

Re: SEX

  • Well my DH decided to google it and now says that I'm the only one who doesn't seem to be experiencing this crazy new sex drive

    There is nothing about me that feels sexy right now and I do not want my boobs touched

  • It's been the opposite here. DH was not interested for weeks. I'd been getting really frustrated about it and trying to get him in the mood constantly till we finally had sex a few days ago and it was partly comical mostly frustrating and now we're both very okay with waiting till full term to have sex ((only because I've warned him it helps induce labor so he HAS to help a girl out ;) ))

  • DH wants it all the time and I just simply have no interest/energy...I feel bad because I know once baby comes it will be harder to find the time but all I want to do is lay there

    I am totally with you. I just don't feel sexy. I feel like I have to pee. ALL THE TIME. Every time I change positions. IE sitting to standing....or rolling from one side to the other.

    Im over it. I just feel gross.

    And don't get me wrong....I appreciate that DH is interested and finds me SUPER DUPER IRRESISTABLE now that I'm as big as a house.....

    But its me. I do not feel sexy

  • Oh, girl, you're definitely not alone. I just explain to DH how uncomfortable I feel afterwards and he usually leaves me alone. I usually have to reiterate it's not that I don't find him attractive.. I just. Want to sleep.

    ^^ this completely. The afterward is so troublesome for me and his "alternatives" aren't any more appealing. He always acts like he is doing me a huge favor by suggesting I give him a BJ/anal over regular sex "because its easier" and I just want to dunk his head in a cold bath. Seriously guy??? Plus his constant bitching, guilting and whining beforehand trying to get me to do it is the biggest turn off ever. Ugh, TMI I know but its so irritating!

  • I'm actually fine having sex now, I know the bigger battle will be after baby when I am sleep deprived and he really wants it.

  • Zero interest on my part, like to the point where it isn't even worth trying. Thankfully and surprisingly, my husband doesn't care.

    Noooo way.  Mentally, there is still a desire to engage.  Physically?  I feel like the most enormous person on the planet and usually like someone has kicked me between the legs.  So no.  Definitely not having sex.  The only way this is going down is if I go to my due date.
    hahah this is where I am at right now. Maybe once every few weeks I'll give in, but pretty much not happening right now. 

    Edited to change "we are" to "I am". DH still interested, me not so much.

  • @MrsBinPA @UnicornsPlease I'm with with both of y'all! It has been a progression over the course of  this pregnancy. Early 1st trimester, I was scared to have sex due to anxiety/PgAL brain. Later 1st trimester, sex life was great. 2nd Trimester, once baby started moving and it could be felt, DH lost interest in sex because that stuff freaks him out. I still had a sex drive though, so just started taking care of my own self for the most part. Now, the few times DH does put the moves on me, although I still have the drive, once we actually start getting down it sucks because I'm so huge any more and the positions are uncomfortable.

  • I feel so swollen "down there" I'm not entirely sure that sex is actually possible! Not that I have even bothered to try in months... I have had zero sex drive since, um, October? Thank goodness I have a very understanding DH! I can't wait to have my body and sex drive back!!!

  • Non existent. That's our sex life at the moment. I feel super guilty but our schedules just don't work for the best and I end up falling asleep trying to get DD to sleep every night. I wish I was one of those people with crazy high drive during pregnancy... Then again that was never me to begin with.

  • You guys are making me grateful for forced pelvic rest. The issue is out of my hands!
    MrsBinPACanadianintheSouthmotherofdragons-2
  • Since I became pregnant we've pretty much been on a once a month schedule, like just enough to get by. At first it was me who was freaked out by it, then I calmed down and DH became freaked out about it, and now we are both in agreement that it is just weird. When it does happen, try as I might, I can't really enjoy myself. I really can't wait until this baby is out and I'm given the all clear by my OB to go for it, because then it's on!

  • DH and I are both on the celibacy band wagon. DH is really weirded out with the bump. He doesn't even like to touch it to feel the baby kicks, I can't imagine him wanting to get his penis by it. ;) I'm just way too uncomfortable and feel like my body parts are super unsexy and unkempt down there that I just wouldn't be able to get in the mood irregardless. I figure we have a life time together so this won't be a relationship killer but I am dreaming of a post baby babymoon, Cabo or Hawaii, something romantic and warm.

  • No, you're not the only one. I've had fewer issues with not wanting sex the last few weeks than I did for my first and second trimesters. I was relieved when I was put on pelvic rest for weeks 5-12 because it gave me an easy out for turning sex down. My fiance however, was one unhappy camper. 
    Now I'm sore, I'm tired, and my fiance makes whale noises at me every time I try to roll out of bed (yes, every time. For some reason he needs to laugh at me for feeling like a beached whale) . I don't really have much interest at the present time, but I do take mercy on the poor man. Besides that, whoever said that sex feels better during pregnancy was completely wrong. Its quite the opposite for me.

  • The other day I asked DH if he was ready to start having sex soon (you know b/c it can help bring on labor) and he goes "yeah definitely you won't be pregnant anymore soon",

    Ummmm no DH, I need assistance to get this baby out and then you are staying farrr farr farrrr away from me for the foreseeable future. That's how we got into this in the first place ya remembah?
    mcdonald-baileymotherofdragons-2rw3190
  • We are also doing a lot of non penetrative sex because I am very swollen and achey, but still very much in the mood. It is intimate. With DS my sex drive was mega super high the entire pregnancy. I'm just really really sore this time around

    Plus you can't have sex for weeks (generally 6 weeks) afterwards anyway, per doctor's orders.....

  • Mine pouts when he doesn't get his way

    Its super annoying

    Like I ache, I feel sick, I have NO INTEREST....like less than 0 in sex and I don't feel sexy. My lady parts feel like Ive been kicked between the legs repeatedly and my son is in the most uncomfortable position

    His response is "you always say that. you never feel good."

  • @mcdonald-bailey I'm definitely not one of those ladies! That's sounds excruciating, pregnant or not. I like it when DH lasts about 0-10 seconds longer than me. I don't have experience with anyone other than DH, but I would be off put by having a penis thrusting for that long!

    @kjd291 Agreed! Anything more than about 10 minutes and he can go finish himself!

  • mcdonald-bailey  Girl I WISH it would stop at 10 mins

    Not because of him but bc I am huge and this kid makes everything SOOOO uncomfortable

     As a side note.....any STM who previously had stitches due to their first kid.....find the place where the stitches once were sore during love making sessions now that theyre pregnant? That one spot that I tore actually bothers me during sex

  • @mcdonald-bailey oh jeez 30 minutes???? that just gets kind of annoying if just thrusting (& if there are hands or other, definitely get numb after a while?). 10 minutes is an A+ amount of time.

    I'm a fan of first thing in the morning sessions: because I'm already in bed, totally relaxed and I don't have the "is this going to be annoying to clean up/discomfort/etc" thoughts that I have later on in the day.
    Since I'm so uncomfortable, the longer I'm awake, I need muuuuuch more mental preparation to have any sort of sex.
