  • Yes. Some people are horny as heck; some people can't stand the thought of sex.

  • VERY COMMON! I hated having sex when I was pregnant. I could count on one hand how many times we had sex when I was pregnant. And the few times we did do it, I only did it for my husband.

  • For me the first trimester I did not want ot even think about sex! When the second trimester hit I got this wave of sex drive and I want it all the time! A lot of the time Im too tired to do it, but I still want it really bad. Some women dont want it the whole pregnancy and some want it more than ever during pregnancy. It is all in your hormones, not much you an do about it. Hope it comes back a little for yours and your hubby's sake!

  • It's totally normal. When I was pregnant with my daughter, almost 5 years ago, I was the one who always wanted to have sex. This time around, it's like I rarely want to have sex.
