Re: How often do you & DH make love?

I voted 2+ times a week, but that isn't always true. WE joke that dh is a sex camel, he stores it up. After ds1 was born we didn't more than once a month until he was almost 2. Then it was more frequent until Ds2 came along. Then for several months we didn't at all. I was healing from a tear and while I am bfing it is hard for me to get in the mood and I tend to have dryness issues (I know tmi). This time wasn't as bad as with ds1 though, don't know if it is because of the mirena IUD or what but I felt more in the mood earlier. Since ds2 was about 7 months we try to dtd a couple of times a week when AF isn't around. Now that is dependant on the boys actually sleeping at night. We cosleep with both of them so some nights are a no go even if we wanted to. But lately we can find some time after the boys fall asleep. IT does mean late nights though, so we can't be busy more than a couple times a week or dh wouldn't get enough sleep to work. But no I don't think 1 time a week is abnormal at all, there were long stretches of time where we weren't nearly that active.

My DF has a HIGH sex drive. When he's tired and stressed from work, usually we have sex 3-4 times a week. If it's a good, slow week at work, probably closer to 7

Everyday, a few times a day. This is his idea. Ironically, when I was pg I couldn't stand the sight of him and wondered what I ever saw in him, but since my loss, I've been sooo sexually attracted to him and find him incredibly sexy. Still, I could do with a little less often.

Re: How often do you & DH make love?

well this year it has been zero
but when we were together i have to say it was not even once a month but our marriage is not falling apart cuz of that. yes we both dont have sex drives but we do other things that make us hot for each other and no its not **** or other types of sex. (ok this is TMI).

I have the same problem. Do you ever get the feeling he only wants it when he really can't have it???

To the OP, I think once a week with a baby that young is GOOD and your man should be plenty happy for now.

Wow .. that's sort of messed up I think. Since I've been pregnant I haven't been putting out or giving it up hardly at all. My boyfriend doesn't dare say that sort of thing. If our closeness were based solely on sex then he'd have some real big problems. If that really were the case for us we prolly wouldn't even be together anymore due to my lack of a libido and his overactive libido. :P

Re: How often do you & DH make love?

When he is home. We have sex a lot. It is more then 4 times a week and sometimes 2 times in one day. We make time for each other and take any opportunity we can. Sex is not just for the bedroom anymore. That is one part of our marriage that has never had any problems at all.

Re: How often do you & DH make love?

I voted 1 month or longer in reality, it's been like...6 months now, before that it had been well over a year. Ahh the joys of being a single mommy. No, really tho, I'm too tired of having to worry about dtd most days anyways

5-6 times a week

DH works nights, so I just wake him up before I go to bed and he goes to work. It's a nice way for him to wake up

When Nate was 4.5 months old, it was only like 3 times a week because it hurt more then.

And even with it that much and no protection, we still haven't gotten pregnant in over 5 months of trying

Re: How often do you & DH make love?

We averaged about 1x a week before baby and now we aren't quite up to that again. Now it's more like 3x a month. (DS is 7mo and I'm BFing as well.. not to mention a high needs baby)
