We've always been "afternoon delight" type people, which does not happen with a 7 yo at home.  I think the hormones makes a big difference in drive too.

I'm off and on as far as libido goes.  I think the lack of sleep, stress over my returning to work and not having a clear birth control plan in place have affected both of us.  But we've had some nice "afternoon delights" while dd #1 was at school and the two little were taking their naps. winky.gif


I'm really trying to remember to do kegels...!

Thanks... now I've got that song in my head. I'm going to have to play it for it to go away, lmao.



My libido is great... the only time I've ever had low drive was after my first daughter. My hormones were crazy out of whack after her. :) We get it while we can, with 5 kids in the house there isn't much time for play, lol. It doesn't happen often but I'm so happy when the stars align just right and it does. ♥

Nic, loving mama to 5 with a SURPRISE 6th on the way.

Mu libido has not returned. Well, I've had a couple of sexy dreams orngbiggrin.gif  but when it comes to actually turning to DH and doing something about it? Hasn't happened yet (at 10 weeks).  My libido took a big hit after DS's pregnancy/birth, so it wasn't that high to begin with. I'd guess we haven't dtd since August...maybe July. redface.gif


I'm 42- aren't I supposed to be at my sexual peak??  LOL!

Yeah, no libido here yet either (7 weeks). As far as BC goes, I think we'll rely on nursing for a while. I didn't get my period for 26 months after DS was born.
