Ugh maybe TMI but how many of you are still
 
having sex? Or should I say enjoying it?

I'm about ready to give up until after the baby comes. I feel absolutely fine until I lay down at night then I get horrible indigestion and I'm so uncomfortable that I can't enjoy anything after that. Not to mention *TMI* I'm terribly dry down there.

well it's been so long (dh's choice, not really mine) that I can't remember the last time... but you've made me feel better that I'm not missing much LOL sorry things aren't comfortable for you!

I still enjoy it, but every couple weeks or so. I am with you on the dry department though!

we have finally given it up. it's just too uncomfortable these days, and i also have really bad heartburn when i lay down.

We do it a couple times a week, sometimes more or less depending on our schedules. Last week it was every day, lol. It's pretty pathetic now though. I have to be half sitting up in order to not have heartburn the whole time. We have to use lube or it's incredibly painful for me. It's definitely not as enjoyable as it used to be, but I do feel sorry for dh if I don't give in at least every now and again. He'd like it every day twice a day if it were up to him. No thanks!

I'm still enjoying it but I think DH would be okay without having it until after the baby is here. He gets a bit freaked out by the baby moving and the belly, etc.

That's opposite of us!! Dh doesn't mind the belly at all. This morning while we were dtd dh pointed down at a very obvious outline of the baby and said, "Hey cool! is that the baby's body sticking up there?" and I was like, "omg, shhhh! I am not pregnant lalala there is no baby between us lalala nope definitely no baby lalala!" The thought of dtd with a child between us wigs me out so I have to pretend it's not happening. lol

I still try to make an effort every few days, but DH is the one that is too exhausted. Although I will say that it's not the most comfortable with the heartburn and being rather dry down there.

Re: Ugh maybe TMI but how many of you are still
 
The other night DH said something about being too tired lately, which is fine really. But it turned out to be super-secret code for "You should come to bed with me..." :lol: Anyway! Yesterday was the first time in about 2 weeks for whatever reason. Normally we've been at about once a week. It had been totally fine and normal and enjoyable for both of us, until yesterday... We definitely needed some lube and didn't have any so it HURT so bad when I went to the bathroom after :( I cried... not good. It was enjoyable, but not that great, TBH. DH said that there was less room and he didn't really fit anymore :lol: Ah well. Life's been a bit nuts so we'll see how much DTD we get in before we start using it to get things going ;)

ok i feel better because i can't even remember the last time. Although i'm not really into it, it's really DH's choice. I think he's a little freaked too and he doesn't want to hurt anything.

Except for a few weeks in the beginning where I was on pelvic rest, we've been having sex at least 3 days a week all the way through. I haven't always enjoyed it, but I discovered that my cervix gets inflamed a lot more easily now, and I am REALLY dry down there.

My advice? Buy some gentle water-based lubricant. I did at Wal-mart for less than $2 and it has improved things dramatically. :) I actually enjoy it again.

Yeah, we've been steady at 2-3 times a week through the whole pregnancy. Not sure if this is TMI - but if I am on top, belly is not in the way. Not sure how long this frequency will last, but I want DH to get what he can now, since after the baby it will be off limits for 6-8 weeks.

Re: Ugh maybe TMI but how many of you are still
 
we always use lube now b/c I'm so dry in the opening but its a different story once inside. I could go almost every day but thats not the case.

hmm we haven't DTD since september!!!! (yep it really makes me lose my sex drive :lol:) but DH has not been completely deprived... IYKWIM :lol:

Re: Ugh maybe TMI but how many of you are still
 
I want to but don't know how. lol

I don't want to be on top because I think I'll wear out and I can't spread my legs that way with my SPD.

I don't want to be on my back because I get dizzy very quickly and can't breathe.

Still having regular sex here, and enjoying it. I hope it continues that way!

Still doing it although not as often as when I'm not pregnant. As Laura said, I've found that being on top greatly decreases the discomfort and the belly isn't in the way. Totally TMI, but if I'm not in the mood, I try to provide "other services". I don't really want to leave dh just hanging. I know that sex is important to him and that he enjoys it. Plus, I notice that for him, sex is directly related to him staying in a constant good mood. He gets grumpy if it gets to be several days w/out! LOL! It's like keeping a pet well fed! He does so much for me, to keep me happy, I consider it a small thing to do to keep him happy. I do remember in previous pregnancies though that at the very end, I do get too uncomfortable to do much of any type of sex. Then, for those couple weeks, he just has to suck it up and deal. :)

Mylene- DH mentioned he's having trouble fitting too.:blush: Apparently I'm super swollen down there.

Amy- what about a spooning position with you on your side? My hips have been killing me so I can't manage to be on top and I haven't been able to be on my back in quite some time without belly getting in the way.

Re: Ugh maybe TMI but how many of you are still
 
I cant even think about it right now. Last time was a couple of weeks ago. Im always the one on top nowadays since its so uncomfortable laying flat. I just feel so yuck and swollen down there and everytime we DTD things feel so not right afterwards.
