At times I want to but towards the end of my pregnancy after dtd I felt icky, I'm worried that dtd too soon I will feel the same way again... Plus my cervix is only one inch inside me so I think I have a prolapsed uterus and havent been to an ob to check it out yet, I'm 99% sure that it was caused by the idiot paramedics... My placenta came out partly just 5 min. after Seraphim was born, after an hour of massaging and breastfeeding the placenta still hadn't detached and I bled a little more and felt faint so dh called 911. I explained to them why they were there and expected that they could give me some tips or help in some way to get it to detach, instead they insisted that I stand up and sit an a chair so they could take me to the hospital! After telling them I couldn't do that because it was still attached (told them 3 times at least by now) they told me to put it on a towel and hold the front of the towel while another medic held the back behind me and stand up... I did and as soon as I did it fell out the side:, thankfully it didn't rip or tear anything and was complete but now I have the prolapsed uterus or at least I think.... this totally sucks, I cant have sex and I'm worried about what this means for future children and homebirths.

omg Nichole I am so sorry, how traumatic for you guys!

I have no libido whatsoever... nada! I don't want to have any sex at all, is there anything I can eat to correct that?

Mine has been in fourth gear since week 1 PP. LOL. Seriously, since last week its pretty much disappeared. I'm not sure why but I guess since we finally did and got it out our systems, I'm good to go.

mine is no better than neutral but DH is in 4th. I never hae very good sucess with the big O until months after the baby and with that I have very little desire to try.

I am aching for DH something serious. We are still newlyweds after all (our 1st anniversary was the 25th of Aug.).

There's just no time. When the baby is down we sleep. At least we get some snuggles in but I'm so heartbroken over the lack of, er, action.

I'm only 2wks pp but I feel like I'm ready. I didn't tear or anything so... yeah. Maybe I should wait anyway? I don't think we have a choice until she develops some consistent eating habits anyway.

Um same here (but not newlyweds ). I'm only 2 wks PP but only had 1 day bleeding and 3 days light spotting so I'm thinking we're safe to DTD. I'm really not sure if one should wait- I asked the MW and she said in my case a "few wks" which I dunno what that means lol
