    Both our sex drives were very high in early pregnancy up until approx 13 weeks then it slowly died down where we were DTD once every 2 to 3 weeks, which is unheard of for us, for the last 2 weeks approx 37 weeks pregnant my sex drive has come back back still not DTD much as Mark is too tired from his long days, which can be frustrating for my hormones LOL

    This is a great topic, its not talked about very much, yet sex plays such an important role in our relationships with our partners!

    My sex drive has decreased quite a bit since being pregnant, I am finding that very frustrating, as I love sex.
    I still try for once a week with hubby. My main issue is that when we do have sex, I cant reach orgasm.
    Has anyone else had this problem??

    I already had a higher sex drive than DP before pregnancy, so it's hard to say how much more or less i'd have been HAVING sex based on when i was WANTING it, IYKWIM.

    We were afraid of miscarriage and didn't DTD for the fisrt 12 weeks (i was also v. tired and nauseous). Then we did it once but not again until i was about 16 weeks. Then we did it quite alot for us (2 or 3 times a week) for a month or so, then nothing again for a while. It's been quite sporadic. Recently he's been put off my how big and wriggly the baby is, as he can feel it very easily now.

    Which is a shame because i would like to DTD and tempt it out....

    Lol. With me it very much depends on if my bub is girl or boy.
    With all my boys I've been horny as, but with my girl I hardly wanted it at all.
    Very confusing for DH as we usually both have a reasonably high libido.

    I've heard that. It's probably an old wives tale but when pregnant with boys you want it more but with a girl it drops

    Lol I know, but in my case it's true. I have friends that it's the complete opposite.

    My sex drive has been the same prior to pg but we have avoided sex due to my history of m/c. So we did nothing in the first trimetser, I think we tried in the second but no go for me then once in this trimester. I was the same when pg with my DD too. I can't remember once we had DD what happened but probably avoided sex due to being sleep deprived and also I think we waited until 6 week check up and for locia to subside...
