Re: is ur DH/partner more or less "frisky" since u have become pregnant???

I voted less, because on average for the whole pg it is less than normal. But even at that we never go more than a week without DTD, so typically we go from DTD 4-6 times a week to more like 1-3 times a week, with assorted frisky times throughout. The older we get, the better we get about finding time for each other no matter what else is going on, he is 30, I am 29.

Our sex life stays about the same. Although, DH does say that my pregnant physique is especially sexy. He loves when I wear lingerie with my big belly poking out (lol).

He has told me it doesnt change the way he looks at me at all...which Im happy about. Ive known a few people where the woman AND the man both opt out of sex for the full pregnancy. I cant imagine!

We have ZERO sex. Havent had any since July. I have to have a cervical cerclage done early on and once that is in, no more sex. Last PG I was so tired I didnt care, this time I have a major sex drive, but I am forbidden!

We will go from July to probably April without any.

Dh is more frisky, but that is because I have been on pelvic rest since 13 weeks when I got my cerclage. It's definitely no fun for me. Once I get the cerclage out at 36 weeks we are allowed (7 more weeks), but last time I had dd withinn a week of that.

My DH has NO SEX DRIVE either while I am pregnant or when I am not pregnant. Of course it is ok when I am pregnant cause I am not allow to do the deed during pregnancy anyway.

My midwife explained to my man that it does not hurt the baby (except for some rare cases, which I was NOT!) but to no avail....he just isn't turned on by my preggo body! Which is sooooo fustrating since I get more 'frisky'.

I'm not sure that I wanna have more kids because it is so hard living in a sexual desert while I'm preggers!

sorry momma, hearing this makes me realize that a dh that is exact opposite is not that bad

Yeah, mine will come out between 35-37 weeks. My cervix has been measuring over 7 cm, yes, SEVEN. so...I'm scared I wont ever dilate. Wouldnt that be ironic? Incompetent cervix refuses to dilate. At that point, who knows if I will even feel like having sex.
