We gave it up for awhile, because everything was just so crowded - it wasn't any fun. Decided to try again today - ugh, now I'm already "expanding" to make way for the baby to come through <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: I guess we're spoiled by good sex, because we are both just thinking we'll wait til the baby is born! This late pregnancy sex is just not worth the effort.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Our sex life has just pretty much gone straight out the window since the pregnancy began, except for a few brief periods during the late first trimester/early second trimester where I wanted it all of the time. I think we go at it about once or twice a month now.

Ugh. Sex.<br><br>
With my last pregnancy it was amazing, this time - not so much. Thankfully (I guess) my DH is overworked and overstressed, ha, and doesn't want it that much.

I am so worn out this time around from chasing a toddler that I hardley ever have energy for it. That being said, when I can find the energy, I like beeing a little "looser". I've always been small, and DH is well endowed, so this is the only time that it doesn't hurt after about 5 minutes.

We have managed to DTD once every weekend so far. I have to be on top now, only option, and it is much lower energy than before, but that's fine. My husband and I like being silly in bed which helps when things are different from "normal". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I hope to keep this up, especially since I heard that sperm can help ripen the cervix?!? That would be nice!<br><br>
P.S.: If I don't get it once a week, I become slightly fixated - not enjoyable.

Sigh! DH feels "weird" at the end so our sex life is on hold. In protest, I have lost interest in the other things that we could do so I feel cranky and grouchy most of the time.

Sex? I am just not in the mood to DTD while PG. I have gotten the urge a few times lately, but it is always at an inconvenient time! With DH working so much and going to school, he is pretty tired a lot too.

I want it - he's only moderately interested. Probably partially because of my size and all. We were both on a diet when I unexpectedly got pregnant, he continued to lose weight -123lbs- while I got fat again <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: So now he looks hot and I want him and he thought he'd have a hot wife by now but instead he's got a cranky pregnant woman sitting around. I can't blame him, but it still hurts a bit that he doesn't seem to be in the mood now when he used to be Mr Horny.<br>
He's getting snipped on the 19th this month and after he needs to *ahem* a whole bunch in a certain amount of time to make sure the little guys are extinct<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> We'll see if he wants help with that, I hope so. Porn is a nono in my house and he's gonna have to rely on me<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

We do fairly frequently... last pg we didn't *at all*. I guess my body and mind are both more relaxed this time.<br><br>
DH is a horndog. I could be 500 pounds with a handlebar mustache and the man would still want to have sex with me.

I guess it is a good thing we aren't going at it too much - I checked my cervix today after giving dh's deposit a day to work - mushy, mushy - I can get 2 fingers in!! Better to wait 2-3 more weeks before bringing on baby!

Yeah, I'm feeling <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> at inconvenient times, like during naptime when dh is at work. At night, I'm perfectly willing, but I'm not about to initiate anything, not that into it.<br><br>
However, I have found that I feel closer to him and we get along better and actually communicate more when we're having regular frequent sex, so it's a priority.

I'm avoiding it right now because I'm worried about going into labour before I hit 37 weeks (no homebirth then). Once I'm in the safe zone, though... I know how long it usually is before either of us is interested when we have a baby, so I hope to take advantage of the time we have left.

we missed our weekend snog this weekend (sweetie was sick and baby has been making me cranky) and i think it's actually made us both feel worse.<br><br>
i'm hoping we can get our groove on tonight. if we go longer than a week we just don't jive as well. i get insecure and he gets cranky. one of the reasons i worry about how long we will have to go without GIO after the porkbun arrives. sweetie isn't so into me when i'm bleeding, so i hope that clears up quickly. and not even to mention if i need stitches. egads. i can't imagine transitioning into motherhood when i'm not getting my sweetie at all!

Sadly, we'd both like to, but his schedule, both our exhaustion, well like to is about all that's happening. He doesn't know it yet, but that'll change soon, like it or not, soon as we get close enough that those hormones will help lol
