Ok, My man keeps saying that everyone he talks to says that a pregnant womans sex drive is supposed to increase. NOT MINE!!! Its gone. I dont think about it, want it or need it. Am I the only one in this boat? What do i do?

You can show him in all the books where it says that most women remain the same or lose their sex drive, and some have an increase, and tell him to settle down and go get you a drink and a snack, or you can go the Nike route, and Just do it.

I have had three kids and the first two were boys and from the minute I found out I was pregnant that was it! Neither me or my husband wanted sex. Yet with my daughter many years later things were very different and we continued to have sex until I was about 6 months pregnant. There is nothing wrong with not wanting sex and if that is how you feel then your husband will just have to understand! Just make sure you reasure your husband that it is not him you have gone off by giving him lots of cuddles and involving him every step of the way with your pregnancy.

I felt that way right after my son was born, mostly because I was getting accustomed to my new body. It just took time. One thing you may try is getting a sitter, even for a few hours. It takes the pressure off of you when it comes to mothering and helped me feel more intimate.
