Does sex gets affected by kids and your post pregnancy body

Hey, I have two kids my both pregnancies were very close. My body is totally out of shape (30 kegs overweight). Hubby doesn't seem interested in me. We had sex one and half month ago last night I showed interest but he just ignored. My mil had also commented on my looks few times just after our marriage ( I was fine then weight wise) she would say things which were not true about my looks. I feel my husband is also getting affected by her comments or by me taking care of the kids. Please help

Sex can be affected, but it doesnt have to be. Honesty goes a long way in keeping the fire alive. Try talking to your hubby when he isn't distracted and is in a receptive mood. Let him know he is still special to you and you are still interested in being with him. If he is having trouble, ask him to be honest with you about it. As for you mother in law, politley let her know that her comments are uncalled for and not appreciated. Stand up for yourself. Getting back in shape is challenging work, but not impossible if that is something that is important to you. However, don't feel you should have to change for anyone! Your body has brought 2 others into this world, that cannot be undermined by anyone for any reason!

Try not to stress over any extra weight, learn to love your body as is with all the changes pregnancy has caused. A positve attitude and stressless approach are key factors in any weightloss. You are beautiful no matter what and feeling it may help your hubby see it too.
