Pregnant And He Doesn’t Want Sex Or Closeness? This Could Be Why…

Pregnant And He Doesn't Want Sex Or Closeness? This Could Be Why...

Pregnant And He Doesn’t Want Sex

A woman’s libido during pregnancy can be a bit of a roller coaster.

In the exhausting, morning sickness fog of the first trimester, some pregnant women drop sex down a notch on their priority list for a bit (or even the whole pregnancy in some cases).

However, in the much more enjoyable second trimester, some women find their libido either returns to normal or goes through the roof. They can’t think of anything better than being close and connected to their partner.

But in some cases, women are faced with their partner being disinterested in sex, with some partners not wanting to touch them or connect with them at all. Some pregnant women say their partner seems completely disinterested in them.

This scenario can create feelings of sadness, rejection, resentment and anger.

Any woman in this position, pregnant and feeling rejected, would understandably have an emotional reaction, especially when it becomes an ongoing issue.

So, what could be the real reason behind a father-to-be’s disinterest? Has he suddenly found you unattractive? Is something else going on?

I asked the very wise JP Sears (who shares amazing life advice as well as humour on his awesome YouTube channel, AwakenWithJP) if he could give us a deeper insight into what’s really going on, under all the outside layers.

We could assume and guess all we like, but I’m pretty sure you wont guess what JP Sears believes could be a very good reason why he doesn’t want sex with you now you’re pregnant. Enjoy!

Ps. The book JP recommends in his video is The Shadow Side Of Intimate Relationships by Douglas Moseley.
