  • This is most definitely not true for everyone, in fact the only women who I ever heard this is true for are women with very low libido. The women with normally high libido goes down.

  • My midwife said that due to increased bloodflow in a pregnant womans vagina it makes it easier to be aroused. I haven't noticed a diffrence and this is my 3rd pregnancy but obviously we are doing the do because like I said, this is my 3rd pregnancy, lol. I think maybe it's diffrent for everyone. I always want to have sex alot as soon as I feel I am able after I give birth. During pregnancy I don't feel diffrent.

  • It's different for different women and even different pregnancies. With my first, I wanted nothing to do with sex. With my second, I couldn't get enough of it. It's all to do with hormones; they affect different people in different ways at different times. Either extreme, or anywhere in between, is completely normal during the hormonal chaos known as pregnancy.

  • I had a very high sex drive before being pregnant. And since I've gotten pregnant, it's even higher for me!! lol But when I was pregnant with my son, I didn't even want to be touched! So sex was out of the picture! lol
