Body Dysmorphic Disorder after childbirth? (a little long)
I've had two vaginal deliveries, and the thought has passed through my mind that things may be different down south, but it's not anything I've ever fixated on. My husband has assured me that things are the same as they used to be. I do think kegels help, or at least they help me feel like I'm doing something.
Now, the sensation of sex does change for a while post-partum. It can change when you're pregnant, too, but that's a situation with hormones, not anatomy. It took some time for my body to regain all of it's sensitivity, and with two pregnancies so close together, I imagine it may take until some time after you deliver this next baby before things are regulated again.
I also do think breastfeeding helped, because it helped my hormones come back to normal more gradually, rather than a crash after birth.

I know my body is a little bit different after having babies, but it doesn't bother me. The only thing that bothers me is the small umbilical hernia that developed during my second pregnancy. Someday I'll get it fixed, but surgery scares me, so I'm stalling. Hahaha! Just a suggestion of something that might help you feel better is to start doing some kind of low-impact exercize. Try yoga or dancing or some kind of easy fitness class. It will make you feel good about your body. Think about loving and honoring your body for all the amazing miraculous things it has done. You made people!!!
