Who's been brave enough to dtd yet?
My 6 week check is in a couple of days and im really nervous, Alan and I have been looking forward to this for what seems like an eternity but the last couple of days I've been getting really seriously nervous. Right now i dont even want to think about dtd, poor Alan was making advances earlier and i had to shoot him down with an "i love you but..." "but you dont want me near you" he just looked so sad.
so anyways who's been brave and how long did u wait before going for it?

We both want to, but I'm still bleeding. Hopefully it will stop so we can soon!

Jason and I tried around 5 weeks I believe. It didn't really hurt, was just a little hard to let loose, I just kept feeling like I was going to rip right open

We haven't tried again since (now 7 weeks) but he's really wanting it LOL... as much as I wouldn't mind going for it again, I'm still a little nervous.

I'm jealous. My "drive" has been so heightened since delivery and I'm a single mom. I didn't rip or tear or have to be cut so down there is no issue. And my bleeding is pretty much done its just like residue now. And yea I got nothing lol.

I'm still sore, and have absolutely no desire. I'm really hoping next week I start feeling better!

Not even a thought in my mind. And the way he's been pissing me off, it's going to stay a non thought. Add to the fact that I'm still bleeding (for 7 freaking days now!) it's really not going to happen. I did use a tampon two or three times and that kinda bothered me after a while.

DH and I have been feeling really close and connected and are snuggling in bed every night so we've messed around a little but not dtd b/c its too soon and I'm still bleeding a lot. But I'm hopeful when I AM ready I'll still be in the mood and things will go well. We weren't able to dtd for 6 months after having my first.

I am ready, he is ready. . .
Physically I feel great but I am bleeding heavy and with clots. He doesnt mind but it grosses me out :X So we will continue to wait. With the other three the wait varied 3-5 weeks, It always just depended on how long it took for me to stop bleeding.

I'm only 8 days PP but I feel great "down there" and I know we won't make it to 6 weeks. Probably as soon as the bleeding stops.

We've done it like 7 or 8 times (first time was less than 2 weeks pp, then once or twice a week since, I was 6 weeks pp on this past Thursday).

Gah! No! I'm only 10 DPP so there's no way I'm ready for any kind of anything down there. I'm terrified it's going to hurt again. It did after DD, although I'm pretty sure most of that was psychological due to my hemmorhage and needing a D&C.

Leah, we DTD around 4 weeks pp and it was fine. We haven't had time since, and now AF is here. DH is gone 5 days a week for work. I guess you could call it good birth control.

I so want to, but after what happened to me during my c-section I don't dare until after my 6 week check. And it will be with condoms until I get my IUD, which I don't really like so it kills it for me a bit. But I am NOT risking getting PG. Right now I am still bleeding, too. We've done other stuff and we snuggle a lot.

If my DH was doing this he would have gotten some by now

I feel fine... but I don't want to lol and I like having the 6 week checkup as an excuse - yesterday he walked up behind me and just started squeezing my boobs, it's like really? my boobs hurt don't touch them! Of course I didn't say that to him - I reminded him not to get all heated up when I haven't had my all clear yet

We started at 4 weeks. My tear is healed but I have a bit of lingering road rash so no rough play yet. The trouble we're having is getting the time and if we have the time, (me) deciding whether sleep or sex is the priority (DH has a standing rule that I'm to wake him at any hour if I'm in the mood lol).

I got the go-ahead last week but haven't tried yet for multiple reasons. I'm kind of scared too and worried I'll get PG again since I just started the mini pill and that won't fully be effective for 28 days (we hate condoms too). And now I've started AF so it's not exactly an optimal time. DH would love to DTD so hopefully I'll muster up the courage soon.
