Lol... I could probably better answer "how many times a year?".
But, I'm going to try and convice DH that he has to start putting out for my sake... I'm hoping it'll start something!

We are 4 nights a week... yep, we have set nights, because if we didn't I'd just go to sleep, and he knows better than to wake me up right now (once I'm up, there's no going back to sleep for the night)

Now I feel bad..... sex is the LAST thing that's been on my mind..... my poor dh, I've been so exhausted that I'm usually falling asleep by 8pm. Not to mention, I'm trying to keep a uti at bay

we haven't DTD since we made the little critter

DH has a very low sex drive normally....once every 2 weeks if i'm lucky usually. I used to push it more, but lately i'm just too friggen tired and always cleaning up after his shit to WANT sex. ugh.

when I was pg with DS....I think we had sex 3x after 5m. DH was on antidepressants and it made it very hard to uh...get excited, and he couldn't er, finish the task...so to speak.

I tried WOEFULLY when I was 40w, but to no avail :

Once or twice a month. I am soooo not interested. I know DH would like it more... but when he comes to bed every night after work and school and I haven't seen him (or any other adult) all day and he turns on baseball and stares at the TV, well, it doesn't exactly get me in the mood. Besides, the only position that works for either of us is missionary and that's tough with the belly.

Once or twice a month.. maybe.

I have varicose veins in my nether regions, so it takes a lot to make me willing to deal with walking like a cowboy for the next three days.

I'm 34 weeks and we've DTD maybe 2 times in the last 6-8 weeks. I'm having a huge problem with sciatic pain, so I'm uncomfortable a lot of the time. DTD just makes it worse.

We make a point of finding time together once a week. Sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less. DH would like to more often, but at this point I'm really sore and tired by the end of the day and he's sooooo not a morning person, which is when I have a lot of energy and, er, drive.

I'm 22 weeks and we are usually a couple of times a day but at least once never missing... Although we have a yeast issue right now and that has thrown a slight wrench in the works :

It seems to be one extreme or the other when pg, no? Ya either want it like crazy or you want him to think YOU'RE crazy so he'll stay away and not even ask for it I've had 3 other kiddos- 1st pregnacy sex was the LAST thing I wanted and the other 2 it was all I wanted. Apparently this one's the same.

Wow I really feel bad for my poor DH. We haven't for the last two months and I know if it were his way it would be every night. Just so exhausted in my ninth month and taking care of a toddler, and cooking dinner every night, and... and.... and..

Zero.
How many times in the last month? zero.
How many times in the 7 months since we created our little prince? maybe 2.

I'm feeling really sorry for myself after reading this thread.

DH is just not putting out.:

maybe twice a week. Right now we end up talking too late at night and then are so tired we don't want to DTD. I love having that time with him when we can talk and it feels like we are just getting to know each other, even though we have been friends for 15 yrs. To me that is part of making love. (I do wish I had the energy to do it more though)

I'm 9 months pg and we're still at 3-4x a week probably! That's how it's been through the whole pg and how it was with my first, too.

DH says, "I like it when you're pregnant!" Me too! (Especially because when nursing my first baby, I had a very low sex drive, but still made an effort at least once a week...

About twice a week (I'm 5 months right now). That's pretty normal for us.

Sex, what's that? DH much too freaked out by my belly size (due in 2 weeks, but has been going on ever since getting pregnant). And afterwards he needs time adjusting (think 6 months). What's a girl supposed to do? I am still a woman!!!!

Haven't DTD since we conceived in Oct. & even then, we didn't finish! DH is still convinced this baby is not his. Of course it is though. DH has been having some medical issues with his testosterone level, but finally this week we were able to get him his medication. It costs $100 so it better work! I am getting really desperate for some loving!!

I can't believe how many men won't have sex with their pregnant wives. Dh could care less. He is always in the mood Sometimes I know I may not feel like, but in the end it's exactly what I needed! We are still dtd about 2 a week. Brings on some nice contractions now though.

I know I'm really shocked by that! The other day dh expressed concern that he might get... uh... excited, in the birth tub and the mw's and doula and my sister will notice! I was like, I can't believe you'd even be thinking that while watching me push a human out of my pee hole! Nothing phases him, I tell you, nothing! I'm the one who doesn't want it.
