Re: No sex while Pregnant?
Ugh... I keep reading about women who can't get enough sex in the 2nd tri but in all honesty, I haven't felt like it AT ALL this entire pregnancy (I'm 35 weeks right now). I haven't had any medical reasons to stop, and DH gets really distance w/out some intimacy so for the whole pregnancy I'd say we're still averaging at least once a week - maybe a week and a half once in a while if I'm not feeling particularly good.
And between that there's usually a little um, inbetween hand holding, so to speak. He definitely has a hard time w/ me not wanting it more, but what can I do? I'm big, I'm uncomfortable, it doesn't feel good, I just want to sleep, and my back hurts. HELLO! What's sexy about hemorrhoids or gas or constant discharge?
Bleck. Men are weird.... at least your guy isn't giving you a hard time about it - that's a huge bonus. I'd do it way less if I didn't think he'd get emotionally distant if we didn't :\ He wouldn't stray - but our relationship would suffer a bit because he literally just doesn't feel as close when it's not happening regularly.
