  • My SO couldn't even wait 2 weeks. He kept trying to indicate sex. Well that's what they sign up for when they get a woman pregnant. They should expect that.

  • We were both so tired after our first that it was weeks before we had the strength to do anything but cuddle.

  • My doctor said I can wait 3 weeks. We did. And all was fine.

  • We were so busy and exhausted that 6 weeks went so fast! My son was colic and up all night, so neither of us had any desire, we just wanted sleep! And I think my hubby was too nervous to do it til the doctor ok'd it.

  • I don't really think anything of it. They're not the ones who push out babies ( or have them cut out... either way). So I don't really care what they think. Though shit is what I think.

  • Why should I care? I mean, it wasn't until 6 weeks that I could walk medium-length distances without feeling pain between my legs. Sex would hardly have been mutual at that point, and I'm not his servant!

  • Mine never did, infact went in for my 6 week checkup and I was pg , it really all depends on you.
