Did you have a crazy libido when pregnant?

So, I swore I'd never post an anonymous question, but....this one's really embarrassing. I'm 28 weeks pregnant with a boy. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I had an increased sex drive. Yet that was NOTHING compared to this time around. I find myself thinking about sex nearly all of the time and masturbate much more than usual. It almost frightens me, because I'm not sure this is 'normal.' Does anyone think this is due to all of the testosterone & other hormones? Am I a freak or has someone else gone through this? I'm too timid to ask my midwife about this. Yes, I'll allow the woman to peer into my birth canal, but can't work up the nerve to ask her about this pressing issue.

  • Well, it's not so much the fact that we're having more sex that stuns me. It's myself. Sheesh, this is so awkward!

  • lol don't worry :) nobody knows its you ;) haha. masturbation is totally normal. what do you think single mamas do with their sex drives??

    a lot of guys find women touching themselves to be quite a turn-on. have you tried getting him involved with it, too?

  • Actually, I'm so emabarrassed about touching myself this much that I haven't mentioned it to him. Maybe I should bring this up so that I can stop stressing about it. He probably would think it's sexy. Then I'd be pretty relieved. :) Shoot, if I got him involved with it, he'd more than likely be stoked because foreplay would be easier, haha.

  • I am totally the opposite. I only felt the drive in the beginning. The bigger I got, the LESS I wanted it. I, too, had a boy.
