I was not interested in sex for months-- the last month of the pregnancy and the first three after the baby arrived. I was so sore during my last month and first postpartum month that the idea of having sex made be cringe. After that, I was so exhausted that the idea of sex didn't even enter my mind-- I was already asleep if I had a spare second.
My husband bugged me about it, too. I just kept mentioning that his parents were probably having sex, too, when his mom was bloated with him. He got grossed out. But in all seriousness, I told him that I was sore, tired, and simply not interested. I told him I would let him know when I was ready again, and to please be respectful of my lack of desire at this moment. He understood, although I'm sure he was still a little hurt, but you've got to do what is best for you right now.
