S.ex baby! (There are going to be a lot of interrupted words here so I don’t get a lot of spammers on here 🙂
I might be over sharing here but I feel that I’ve been pretty authentic as a blogger and I don’t want to stop and s.ex clearly plays a big role in getting pregnant and in married life, so…hang in there with me!
I don’t know about you but my s.ex life has gone down the tubes. It might be because MH and I are both getting older (?) or maybe it’s because dealing with more than a year of TTC interfered with our intimate life but I don’t think our s.ex life will ever be the same. TTC is a trying and tiring experience especially when one is not getting the results desired. I’m not sure when s.ex lost its appeal to me but it did a couple to few months after our miscarriage.
The idea of being with MH intimately is wonderful in theory but each month was a challenge for me. I lost my true de.sire along the way. It isn’t that I lost my de.sire for MH along the way but just knowing that se.x was a necessary thing instead of a fun activity for us didn’t help my lib.ido. We would have marathon sperm meets egg plan cycles. After all that intimate time, we would need a break and sometimes wouldn’t do it again until after the cycle ended. It was tough.
After we got the great news that I was pregnant again, I was scared to do it in fear that it would cause another miscarriage. So we held off and didn’t do it except for once or twice until we hit 12 weeks. Things improved again temporarily but then I was overcome with the horrible morning sickness, which clearly didn’t lead to adventurous or even any s.ex for anyone in our house – LOL.
Now at 24 weeks, I’m feeling great and sex.y! Though I haven’t been lucky to have been hit with the increased s.ex drive hormone. I’m jealous of those who do get it during the second trimester! Instead, my belly is getting so big and I’m becoming more and more uncomfortable. It doesn’t help that MH prefers that we face each other…I’ll leave it at that 🙂
It worries me that this is the start of a decline in our s.ex life that may stick around until Roo is older. I love MH dearly and I also love myself a good time 😉 I hope that everything goes back to “normal” again soon!
Any thoughts and tips on helping a girl’s s.ex drive improve while pregnant?! Did this happen to you or am I the only weird one out there?
