Quoting Christine:

don't want it at all from the time i find out poor hubby



HAHA. That's a better way to put how I have felt, too! Glad to hear I'm not the only one! And to think, this would be the time it would most safe and fun since we don't have to worry about getting prego, right? That is sooooo the last thing I wanna do now! :)

My first pregnancy I could have had sex all the time and nothing seemed to make the urge go away. My second and current pregnancy I do not really have a sex drive, well it happens mostly during the daytime but our 2yr old son is awake. I think it is normal to have both ways. I have a friend that during her entire pregnancy she did not want and did not have sex at all...I could not imagine being the hubby...lol.

I don't remember if I had sex in my third trimester, but I for sure had sex during my pregnancy with my first child. Doctors actually "prescribe" sex during pregnancy if you have an overdue baby or simply no complications during the pregnancy at all. My boyfriend of 5 years couldn't stand the fact of having no sex for 9 months. I had an overall perfect pregnancy, so I think it depends on how well your pregnancy has been throughout until you've reached your 3rd trimester. Having sex is actually good for the baby to be honest. I read it in the books, as well as asking my doctor.

Weird! my sex drive went through the roof. Sex didn't even chase my over due baby out.

Hell yes, I'm almost 39 weeks and the last thing I want to have anything to do with is sex w/ my DH. He understands which helps out. I miss it, but know it's uncomfy even at the Doc's office when she's doing those internal checks on my cervix. She even mentioned to us, "I don't know how you guys could have sex since I'm hitting your baby's head w/ my fingers!" That was enough for me!

The last trimester is the hardest. II felt so feel uncomfortable and tired. I got so big the last few weeks all I wanted to do was sleep. You might feel that way too after baby is born, all depends on you and your body, your baby and his or her delievery and whether or not your going to breast feed. You will eventually get back into it, it takes time. Hang in there.

yah i have 5 weeks to go and im not that big people keep saying to me but i just feel big and i find it awkward. I think everyone's different but i do want to try and help it to bring on my labour so im not overdue as im getting bad rib pain from her sitting to high up. Hope it gets better for you after the babys born!

Ha... I think that's pretty normal. It's get so difficult to even move around at that point, and so many positions are either uncomfortable or completely impossible. Combine that with the hormones, sleepiness, feeling "fat"... it's a wonder that some women still have any libido left. I think that, in this case, you just have to sympathize with your poor husband and (please excuse the phrase) "give it up" still now and then even if you don't feel like it.

It happens - I have not had much of a sex drive and now that we've started the third trimester, I have pretty much not wanted to at all. You're very lucky that your man doesn't try. My fiancee loves to try, but I always smack him away. :) I'm just so uncomfortable... Hang in there!

well its not him its me lol I dont want sex at all and i wonder why? He totally respects that, he just says its hard for him to know that im right there and he cant do nothing lol. I am so happy with him because he NEVER tries and all we do is cuddle and he tells me im beautiful and looks romanticly into my eyes its so sweet :)

yeah I didn't want it very often during the last trimester either..you just feel so completely different and tired and well you know i suppose lol! we finally did have sex a bunch when the due date came and went..but it didnt help to bring on labor at all.. but i wouldnt worry if i were you. you are doing the most important job anyone could ever do and your man should understand this and admire you for it.

the first time i was preg, i didn't want sex at all. this time around i could have sex all day long. it's my hubby that doesn't want sex right now, which may result in his death... lol.
if he's feeling a little lonely lol, tell him that if he wants more sex, to try and woo you. i know it was in part a self-confidence thing during my first pregnancy, and all i wanted was to know that he still found me attractive.
if you still don't want sex, don't worry, it'll be over soon :)

hahaha...
I didn't want to have sex my ENTIRE pregnancy!!!
Different ppl's hormones do different things to them.
However, we did it 6 days before my due date, and the next day - BAM! My water broke! So I believe it can help "get things going" later on in pregnancy.

yes, I went through it, and now I've noticed, I don't even want it at all... the idea actually makes me want to puke oddly enough and it drives my husband crazy, chances are you'll want sex again after you have your baby, but everyone's different
