Your sex drive During Pregnancy

Recommended Posts

Allinaday

Did your sex drive go up or down? Thought I'd do a fun poll. :D

Increased

Decreased

Same

Get away from me

 

 

 

I wish there was a way to do an actual poll on here.

Week 6 to 10 decreased completely due to all day nausea! then increased, am 22 weeks now and it's still quite high, assuming it'll decrease again with growing belly?

Decreased big time.

 

I know it's safe, but with my history of mc I don't like the idea of poking around down there. DH feels the same.

Probably decreased. I thought that at some stage it would increase ( remembering a Friends episode where Rachel was feeling particularly amorous) but I haven't really felt like it. I don't see anything happening for the next 8 weeks either as I am getting huge, uncomfortable and tired. My poor dh.

Mine decreased majorly in the first trimester, increased in the second and has now decreased again in the third trimester.

 

With DD it decreased till late in the third trimester.

I'm in my second trimester (not August DIG, sorry!) and it decreased a lot in the first trimester and while it has increased a little it isn't back to what it was pre-pregnancy, I'm hoping it increases in the next couple of weeks...

With DD - was about the same

 

This one - have had dull nausea & the fatigue and really not interested for weeks now. DP has been sent away for work for a few nights so will see if absence makes the heart grow stronger ?

I'm a June mum (soz, don't belong here!) but thought it might be useful to hear from someone just on the other side...

 

Massive decrease for me. As in Don't Touch Me type decrease for the WHOLE DAMN PREGNANCY. Poor DP. Poor ME!!

 

DD is now 10 days old and the only thing stopping me from jumping his bones are the episiotomy stitches and the fact that we haven't laid in any condoms yet...

Zip. Nada. No interest. I was ok last pregnancy but this one I'm entirely ambivalent. Which is strange as its usually quite high.

Decreased

 

Or possibly even deceased.

 

In the first 18 weeks I was throwing up about 10 times a night, so it was pretty much a no-go.

 

After about 20 weeks, I got cramps after sex. So I would panic that my baby was going to be born and wouldn't be old enough to survive outside the womb.

 

At about 29/30 weeks, it increased a little because I knew I had a chance at a healthy baby if it was born after that stage.

 

By about 32 weeks, i'd developed such excruciating pain in my back and ribs and a swollen spleen. Has gotten worse every week since.

 

Pregnancy is fun :rolleyes:

Massive increase here. Both times. Even while struggling with HG. I drive DH nuts I think.

 

However, in both pregnancies I have had low lying placentas and advised no sex. First pregnancy saw me in hospital with a post coital abruption at 26 weeks. So there wasn't much action happening between 26 and 35 weeks first pregnancy (although the desire was definitely there). This pregnancy I have had some light bleeding also - not related to sex. So again, these middle weeks are a bit sad!

 

So I am pretty much very frustrated at this point! ;) Hoping my scan in 3 weeks time reveals the placenta has moved!!! :pray:
