Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

I voted 3+ because dh left for Iraq when dd was a week old and didnt come back to the states until six months later. So it wasnt by choice.

Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

I can't believe I'm actually posting this, but here goes...

With DS we tried at 5 months and I just couldn't do it. Then we tried again (and succeded) at 7 months. I had pretty bad ppd.

With DD she's almost 7 months and we haven't even tried. We haven't dtd since she was conceived (almost 16 months ago)!! I had major complications during my pregnancy that lasted till about 3 months after she was born. And now with DH working 70+ hours a week and me taking care of the kids full time, we barely even see each other long enough to grab a hug or a kiss.

Well, he's almost 2 months old, and not yet have we dtd.
I'm occasionally in the mood, but ds sleeps with us (and won't sleep more than 10 min on his own), so we haven't found the opportunity yet. This is by far our longest dry spell ever, since I think the last time was when I was about 5 mos preggo....

same here, but we did try DTD at around a week. It didn't work, so we did other things. lol I wanted to get something because he was leaving for another 6 months when miranda was just 13 days old.. lol

Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

I was given a rubella immunization after dd's birth, and was told to be extrememly careful not to get pregnant until 3 months later. . .and I was thinking of getting an iud, so dr told me to wait until after that. . .but I decided against the iud around week 7 or 8 I think and everything was fine. I was surprised, because after my first delivery it was about 2-3 months and I was really sore, but this time no issues.

Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

For us it was 10-12 weeks. I had a 4th degree tear and they didn't give me the go-ahead till then. And I wasnt' going to risk having that rip open!! Plus dh was all about waiting for the IUD & it didn't get put in until I was totally healed.

Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

We waited about 2 weeks w dd#1
2 weeks w/ dd#2
1.5w/ dd#3
(all were vag births)

And then with DS It was about 2-3 weeks (a complicated c-section)

WOW!!! I cant BELIEVE how long some of you have gone!!
Im so sad for some of you who either are without your DH for various reasons OR who have gone MONTHS for 'other' reasons!! When we don't 'come together' (no pun intended ) for a week or more, we have a rough time here. My DH is very ahhhemm... "Active" And I could go about once a week but he is a every other day kinda guy usually. We seem to bicker more & drift when we arent connecting on a intimate level. (wich would normally lead to Lovin')

Big s to you mamas & Papas that need some encouragement (& some Lube)

Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

I waited a long time after my 1st b/c I was a single teen mom and scared to death of getting pregnant again! With my 3rd we waited about 3wks and maybe 10 days with our fourth. With our 5th we waited around 10 days again.
