I posted this in the September 2013 board already but I figured I would ask you ladies too since some of you have older babies.
Okay so this may be a strange question but I was hoping to get some insight. And I'll apologize ahead of time if it's too TMI.
I am 3 weeks PP and I know I can't have sex until at least 6 weeks PP
but I know my husband is getting excited to get physical again. During
my pregnancy we had sex MAYBE 5 times (I had complications so we
couldn't have sex for the last 3 months). Anyways, since giving birth I
have not felt sexual in any way. Maybe it's hormones but I have felt
anything but sexy since giving birth. To be honest, I have no desire to
be physical with my husband at all. During my pregnancy I went through
times where I would want to have sex but I never enjoyed myself. I guess
I was kind of creeped out since I was pregnant and just couldn't get
Now that I am not pregnant I am having a hard time
separating my mommy body from my sexual body. Between breast feeding,
stretch marks, hemorrhoids, discharge and stitches I am finding it
difficult to feel sexy. I feel bad because I know once we get the green
light from the doctor, my husband will want to have sex and I feel like I
won't enjoy it or try to avoid it.
So my question is, has anyone else experienced this and does it get better? I really want to enjoy sex again!
