Don't worry about it too much.
This is my second pregnancy, and both times I am completely turned off from sex.
Especially later on. There's nothing sexy to me about feeling your baby move around inside you while having sex lmao
But a lot of women get their mojo back in the second trimester because the symptoms usually go away. Or at least become less severe.
For me sex was OK until about 28 weeks. Just thinking about it made me want to throw up. Now, later in pregnancy (37 weeks) I still don't want it. I may get the feeling coming on then I'm like nope nevermind Lol. Its crazy because with our first two I was crazy about it. Like craving cake Lol. But this time I have no want for it.
My poor husband won't be getting any goods until the 3rd weeks of December. (Getting induced in 1 week)
But it's fine there are other ways to please your mate.
I'm in the same boat but the great thing is that my husband won't touch me pregnant in fear of hurting the baby so I'm good Lol. Even if I wanted sex he wouldn't go for it still because he says he might hurt me or the baby Lol
I am exactly the same my partner however has a high sex drive which drives me nuts. I just say later then fall asleep with my son :) seems to do the trick. But recently I've had an infection which he thinks is disgusting (it is) and I make sure I explain the discharge I've been getting and that seems to put him off if I fancy a late night, well anything up to 9pm lol x
Thanks ladies it's good to know M not alone.
Girllll! I haven't had none in... 6+ months. Mine was more medical.. I bled til 12 weeks, Dr said when the bleeding stops but I didn't want to take any chances.. I got a little 'mojo ' around 20 weeks but didn't exactly feel like having to talk him into having sex smh lol now I'm 38 weeks & lost the mucous plug and the one thing that helps.. Sex/sperm.. Is totally off the table :( let your man know NOW you need his sperm the last few weeks to thin your cervix lol good luck!
I havent had sex since I found out in July that I'm pregnant... Just didn't have the desire. Now at 19 weeks, due to placenta placement my Dr told me no sex at all anyway so at least now I have an excuse lol.
I can't seem to shake thrush and bacterial vaginosis so I agree the discharge is gross tmi but it's either thick and greenish or lumpy white :( I have just started a second course of antibiotics and thrush treatment so hopefully this time I can shake it. Once she's born I expect my sex drive will return lol
Put in some effort instead of telling yourself you don't want it, it's all in the mind. Once your there it's all good. I cannot not want to please my husband and same for him to me. Yah sure things change and we don't feel 100% but it's something that you share together. There are so many options to please each other.
We've not had sex either since we found out I was pregnant in July a week after we got back from honeymoon lol I've suffered badly with sickness since week 6 and it's worse at night, had no desire or energy to even think about what got us in this situation in the first place lol starting to feel better now I'm on decent anti-sickness meds but not enough to go fancying sex lol
I would have to agree with shaub_1985. If my husband wants to and I'm not up to it, there are other ways. We always want want want and when we are pregnant and want things and to be catered to, we need to keep in mind our partners needs.
I have not had the problem of being so turned off that it really is an issue and I am 30 weeks.
We both have needs and both are much better parents and partners when those are met!
