Does pregnancy hamper your sex drive?

Ever since I've become pregnant, I don't like sex very much. Is this normal for some?

  • for me it was better! Don't know if it was because I didn't worry about what I looked like the same, but was definitely easier to orgasm, and I was initiating much more often!

  • There was a period in my pregnancies where I couldn't possibly get enough sex. I want to say around 20 weeks, give or take a few.

  • I haven't ever since I hit the third trimester. I just feel fat and so not sexy, and I think that has a lot to do with it at least for me. I would probably help too if it were a little more comfortable, but for some reason it just isn't right now. Poor DH, he's basically waiting until after the baby gets here and we're good to go again, lol. If it's anything like our first, I'll be the one who wont want to wait until that six weeks is up. Hormones just cause chaos when it comes to pregnancy.
