I think I've seen it in the other tribe or DDC forums.

Ready: go. I could post a random harmless discussion question, like "what's your favorite cookie" or something, but instead, let's ask "who's having sex?"

Cause I'm not. I'm skeeeered. :

(Way to make a solid first impression, Julia.)

We only have once since we found out, but we're not abstaining for any particular reason. Just haven't been in the mood, I guess.

During my last pregnancy, sex was very painful for me throughout the entire thing and we probably attempted to have sex maybe five times the whole nine months. And all of those five we stopped because I couldn't take it. Poor dh! He's probably preparing himself for 35 more long weeks of celibacy!

We have a coupla times since we found out. We have a family bed, so weekends are really the only time that we can get together. We make up for lost time during the week!

My husband said that my body feels very different and "welcoming" is what he said. With both of my previous pregnancies, my libido was in overdrive, so I hope that happens again. Though, DH gets a little weirded out when my belly gets really big and then I have to practically beg him for sex.:

I think that DH is a little disappointed that he didn't get more than one month's worth of "productive baby-making sex"

Every day?!? I just looked at my chart, and noticed we have DTD everyday. When I told DH, he says "What I am wondering is why it is only once most days": I told him to be happy with what he's getting.

Needless to say, if I was having a m/c, I'd rather have it now. I could not get away with weeks and weeks of not DTD. DH would die (literally, I think). Good thing I enjoy it too

This am, DD was set up with her favorite Dora video and a bowl of cereal on the table. That left us just enough time to enjoy ourselves.

My Mom told me how when my bro and I were little, she would set the TV to the right channel, set up two bowls of cereal and leave two glasses of milk in the fridge. By about 4/5 yo I could take bro downstairs, turn on the tv, and make us cereal so my mom and Dad could sleep in and enjoy themselves. Bro and I enjoyed our independant time.

The other day I told him that we needed to redecorate our bathroom so it would look more like the love nest it is.:

I've been really busy at work, so not much time, but dp is looking gooooooood. We've done it just once or twice since getting pregnant, but I have to keep up the illusion that all that sex wasn't just because I wanted to get pregnant...

It's only been once for us since. I think that was the best part of ttc for dh because when I told him we're finally pregnant, he said "so does that mean we have to stop trying?".

Julia, I'm a little scared too.
