  • You have a right to feel what you feel. Every pregnancy is different and since you already have a child during this pregnancy, the circumstances are different. He should definitely be sensitive to your feelings and not placed any pressure on you....not every woman is in the "mood" at 32 weeks.....heck I wasn't....I couldn't see my feet !!! LOL :)

  • It happened with me both times. The first time I didn't like having sex because I felt so big and ugly. The second time I hurt whenever we tried so we didn't have sex from about six months until after the baby was born. It's normal.

  • Everything regarding sex drive is normal during pregnancy. With my first, I had no desire for sex at all while I was pregnant, and that continued for months after I gave birth. With my second, I couldn't get enough of it while I was pregnant, and then nothing for months afterward. Your body is going through some crazy times right now, hormonally speaking, and it's just going to get worse before it gets better. Try talking to your husband about it and letting him know in no uncertain terms that it's not him. I know they can be stubborn about things like that, but he's just going to have to get over it. It does get better, though, I promise.

  • Im in the same boat..im 32 weeks and have no desire to have sex whats so ever. I dont even like to be touched at all. So, it has caused a bit of a problem with the hubby but he understands sometimes. Other not so sure lol. He will get over it. I tell him try being pregnant and 20 or more pounds heavier and being sore and be in the mood. I said the day you carry our child and know what its like is the day i will have sex as much as he wants even while pregnant. I dont see that happenin haha.

  • Your hubby is lucky you wanted it at all! My poor husband puts up with me! I havent had a sex drive since i was 21! I feel so bad for him, i have been to the dr and they cant fig out what is wrong with me! So let him know that other men have it worse! i think its normal for you, your loosing sleep and about to loose more sleep!
