Well, just like my first pregnancy I was so not into sex for the first trimester, but out of the blue, 2nd trimester hit and I was ready to go!
I started having sex dreams and was usually ready for some action by morning, unfortunately Eric is often up before me so it doesn't always work, but we find ways:)
I guess we always have sex about two to three times a week, but the difference is that recently I WANT to, not just do cuz I love matt and know that's important I way to show him that.
So yeah, anyone else getting their mood on?
It's hard with a growing belly to deal with, but worth the effort I'd say, and honestly the best part is the hj before the sex for me at least!

But as usual I worry that it could hurt my baby all that.......... But I try to ignore baby thoughts when the time comes, it tends to kill the mood

If only this lasted forever right!

I can tell you from one who has already had 5 kids that it is different with every pregnancy. 1st pregnancy once I was in my 2nd trimester I wanted to have more sex. Same with my 2nd. With my third I was turning down my hubby constantly cause I was pretty tired with a 3 yr old and 1 yr old. With my 4th I was wanting it more cause there was more of a gap between that one and the last. Then with the 5th it was half and half. I may get in the mood but if I have to ask my hubby cause he isn't understanding what I want the mood past and it was frustrating.
Now with this one, we may do it once a wk but I am always exhausted cause my 10 mo old still is not sleeping through the night, my 3 yr old wakes up needing to go potty and due to my age. So it did change for me. It may not for everyone.

my first trimester i was told not to by my doctor which is hard cause i did want to have sex and i know my hubby did as we were use to having it every other day.. but now that im in my second trimester its a whole nother story.. i had no interest up until about 15 weeks.. then it was like someone flipped on a switch.. lol.. now i cant seem to get enough.. but i do worry still about the problems it could cause.. it is very hard for us to find a position where the huge twin belly doesnt get in the way and where i am comfy.. i was already told after 22 weeks i am back to not being allowed to have sex cause of the risk of preterm labor with the twins.. so my times quickly running out.. and me and my hubby are making the most of the next few weeks.. =)

Hahaha
In my first trimester I was ready to have some all the time. My bf looked at me one night and said "really? Again? Jesus christ!"
Now that I reached 2nd, I don't even want to think about having sex or being touch for that matter. Besides the fact that I'm exhausted, when I actually want sex, the feeling last for 5 seconds and that is it. On top of that, getting ready for sex takes SO long for me that when I get confy the mood is gone.
My bf understands the situation (thank god) but still complains and asks for some loving every now and then

I just honestly don't have the energy for it right now either! We have company coming this weekend, our son's 2nd birthday is this coming week and we're having a big party back home (we just moved to our current location 3 hours from before) for him next weekend and we're moving to a much bigger house the weekend after that. So between planning and packing and every day normal stuff, I am just exhausted. Thankfully, I have a very understanding hubby who is ok with being turned down..as long as I do give in sometimes haha. And its great when I do give in...but whew it takes me a full day to get my energy back after. So weird considering how active and energetic I normally am. Just exhausted this time around (which I'm told is normal..sigh..)
haha but like you said, maybe things will change soon!!!

I hope it changes for you, I know I hate turning him down but it's hard to act enthusiastic when I'm not feeling it. Good luck! Maybe read a nice steamy romance book:)

Haha I was going to make a post about this too. Except the opposite lol. When I was pregnant with my son, the second and third trimesters (up until the day I had him!) I ALWAYS wanted it!! Normally I'm turning down my hubby several nights a week but with my son, he had to turn me down some because he said I wore him out hahahah.
However with this pregnancy...sex is the LAST thing on my mind. He is still begging constantly, but I don't even want to be touched by him! Its so weird how things change like that from pregnancy to pregnancy for some people!
Maybe this will change for me soon ;)
