Okay so, since I have a subchorionic bleed I've been banned from sex & orgasms until the end of the pregnancy... I pretty much "need" to have sex three times a week at least when I'm pregnant and even on nights when I'm too exhausted to have sex I still appreciate some...help. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"> It seriously helps keep me sane and is a huge stress buster for me.<br><br>
I'm a very high strung person and I've been extremely crabby this whole pregnancy. I feel like sex has been the only thing keeping me from being a total crazy woman. Now it's been taken away. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"><br><br>
I will obviously do anything gladly for my baby & to make sure she has a nice warm home for FOUR more excruciating months. *sob*<br><br>
Anybody been in my place? What exactly do you do in the place of sex? Knit?<br><br>
Thanks for listening!<br><br>
ETA: I am so thankful to not have to be on bed rest, I know it could be much worse.

Oh my gosh. 19 views and not one response. Now I'm paranoid. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/sulkoff.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="tiptoe"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I'm sorry! that really bites! my sex-drive is ramped up in PG too and pelvic rest would probably kill me (or at least it feels that way).

I have not idea. I have to have sex like 10 times a week when I am pregnant. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I would go bonkers without it!<br><br>
Hmmm, what about a hobby like knitting?

Knitting's a good hobby to have. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> I find it to be very relaxing.<br><br>
I'm sorry, I'm no help. I had to go on pelvic rest after our late m/c scare w/DD and it was tough. I didn't know how to knit then . . . maybe if I did, it would've made it a little easier to handle. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Knitting seems over my head... once in awhile I can crochet. I *do* have hand held solitaire. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Develop an obsession with a tv series available on dvd?<br><br>
Sorry. There is no substitute for sex.<br><br>
Maybe you can give yourself little prizes along the way- every two weeks or every month go for a massage, a pedicure, something to look forward to.

Well, I will be passing through your neck of the woods in a few weeks . . . I could stop by and teach you the basics. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Just passing through on our way to MN for a wedding. Of course, I'll have to stop and get my Target and Buffalo Wild Wings fixes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Chocolate. Manicures. Pedicures. Shoulder and neck massages.<br><br>
I feel for you. My libido goes up when I'm pregnant too.<br><br>
Good luck.

I have no advice, but I was on pelvic rest during the first tri with dd due to a SCH (it resolved by the 18 week u/s). Unfortunately, my dreamlife didn't get the memo. There were still, uh, a lot of orgasms <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">.

Phew, someone else like me! Sorry to hijack the thread but...I verbally paraphrased some of the responses for DH and he started to (pretend) cry! I think he wishes he was married to one of you high-libido preggo ladies, LOL!<br><br>
To OP, I agree with one of the PP that maybe your body will force some relief via dreaming....so if you're feeling really antsy, take a nap...!?

I am a super high libido pregnant woman... but I'm also super single. Maybe you mamas who don't feel the urge could send your dh's my way. I'm always happy to help out my ddc friends... just selfless am I. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/tiphat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Tiphat">:<br><br>
LMH - Sorry 'bout your luck! Maybe you can start having some fun again closer to term, when you wouldn't mind if it triggers labour?

You have another boat member!! The thought of using all of that energy alone makes me tired. My poor hubby, I told him the other night to just use the internet. That didn't go over so well....lol<br><br>
I don't have any suggestions for you, other than shopping, that's my euphoria <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I'll jump on that boat too. My husband will gladly give us all a giant push off shore! use the internet - teehee<br><br>
lmh - I'm sorry that you got the glory of supercharged libido only to be shut down! Maybe just spend more time on MDC. I find that time seems to fly by wandering around here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Shapping and chocolate are great suggestions too!
