SAME HERE!!! I told my DH how sexy he looked the other day and he said "Don't even use words that have 's e x' in them... It's too far away...." I feel like we're in high school again where we're only allowed to kiss and then you get all giddy but have to walk away! I'm 8 days PP and am going to ask my MW at my 2 week appt if I have to wait till 6 weeks or if 3 is ok!
I will add though that we weren't DTD much in the last weeks of my pregnancy. The last time we did it was pretty painful for me so we haven't had a lot of action in a while.
And it's normal to not want to do anything! I don't want anyone to feel bad or weird if they're not ready to go. Everyone is different and responds differently to all the hormone changes and life changes. And every husband has their unique response too! After our first, my DH wasn't into the idea the first couple weeks.. It's ok to need these weeks to adjust. Respect your body and feelings and it'll all come back in time.
