Feeling a little undesirable :(
I'm 14 weeks along now, and at first I was NOT in the mood for sex at all. Probably because I was exhausted, bloated, and nauseated all the time. Strangely enough, my hubby didn't seem to mind much that we weren't being intimate. He just left me alone in that respect and didn't even try. I thought it was really sweet he understood. My miserable symptoms all subsided at about 10 weeks, and for the past two weeks especially I have been in sex overdrive. I feel like I want it all the time! I know this is common with some women, but there is a problem...I think my husband doesn't want it! Before pregnancy, he used to want it all the time too...now he seems uninterested. Last week we actually had sex for the 1st time in over a month, and he seemed strange the whole time. Like he was uncomfortable. To make matters worse, he faked his orgasm! I thought he finished (he acted like it), but afterward there was no semen inside me (normally it's a mess dripping out everywhere). I didn't say anything because I didn't want to make him feel bad, but now it's really bothering me. I feel like I don't turn him on anymore. We have read lots of books and articles about sex during pregnancy, so he knows it is safe and that we aren't hurting the baby. I tried to talk to him about it the other night, but he just told me I was being ridiculous. I ended up in tears, of course, because I am an emotional wreck right now. How do I approach this with him? Has anyone else had this problem with their hubby?
