I was just wondering if anyone out there is having any sex with their partners or themselves during these last few months. I am 29 weeks and it has been weeks since I last attempted. My second trimester was great, I felt like being intimate a lot and we tried lots of new things. Since then I have grown a lot and I am nervous about having an orgasm. They were beginning to feel more like a labor contraction (not so pleasant) than something to look forward to and pleasurable. I also get spotting after sex, and although my midwife states this is normal for me (I have a polyp on my cervix, which is very vascular and can cause bleeding) I still worry about it, which ruins the moemnt. So there has been no sex here, my sleep is getting more and more disturbed (related to no sex maybe), and although he is understanding, my husband is a little frustrated. So if we don't do it again until after the baby is born, it could be 6 months before we have sex again. It took a while after my first for sex not to be painful. Anyway, I just thought this would be a good place to talk about it since it isn't a topic that just anyone can talk about or relate to. Thanks for listening.
