There's no medical reason I can't....but the baby's head is completely in the way. It feels fine for me, but he says it's way too narrow and hurts him. He's been able to feel the head for a long time, I guess it's just bigger or lower or something now. So I'm all frustrated and can't reach around my belly to do anything myself.

I'm all whiny today, he's asleep and I have to go to work (but then, he works nights, so he should be asleep, but I still wish I could be).

May I suggest some toy play with you and your hubby or possibly some oral action?

I'm so excited, I was taken off restriction last night so for the first time in 14 weeks I get to dtd as often and as much as I want!!! HOORAY!

Hey, just because he doesn't want to, doesn't mean that he can't help you - there are plenty of solutions, if only you get a bit creative!

I'm Olivia. I blog about physiological childbirth, homebirth, and unassisted homebirth!

Yeah, it is really low, my MW can barely feel the head it's so deep in my pelvis. My due date is Friday, but we've been counting on a late baby....I'm starting to feel like it won't be so late though, I've been getting lightning type twinges in my cervix for a few days, more BH than I'm used to, and this morning when I got up to pee I had lost a good amount of my mucous plug. I still think it'll be late, but maybe not as late as we thought.

I feel really selfish asking him to give me that sort of attention though, he works nights and I work days, we usually only see each other for 3 or 4 hours a day, so asking for 'me' time from him is difficult.
But I managed to get Saturday off, so hopefully we can have some time then...either way, a whole day spent with him is going to be so lovely.

Depending on his disposition, it may well not be selfish to ask him to um attend to you, if you get my meaning...

Sorry if this is too personal, but could you just do some very shallow work? I think that's all I could stand right now, without an engaged head, but I don't know if that would work at all with his/her head engaged already.

Our problem is more that dd is still in our bed, and I'm too big/uncomfortable to dtd any where else! Gotta get a babysitter....
