Oh man, recovery from sex last night was just ridiculous. My whole lower half felt swollen and painful afterward. This doesn't happen every time but last night was just bad even though the sex itself was nothing too crazy. I had to keep my legs up and rest the whole evening- it was pathetic. I think DH is scared to touch me again :( I know pregnant blood flow is increased but it felt like the blood was trapped in my crotch and legs!!! I'm not worried about the baby or anything but I would like to continue to have sex without having to be an invalid until the next day.
Also, any suggestions for positioning? It is becoming increasingly hard to get comfortable (I am 26w) and I feel like I am this beached whale flopping about trying to get comfortable which is sooooo not a good feeling during sex, kwim? The worst part is that I have the libido of a teenager during the 2nd & 3rd tris (at least I did last pg and it appears this one too) so I am not particularly in the mood to wait 5 months until I recover pp. Its kind of cruel that while pregnant I have this crazy libido and yet feel (and look IMO) so incredibly un-sexy!
