How do I tell my husband I don't want to have sex anymore?

Don't get me wrong it's been great until this point. I'm 32 weeks pregnant and although sometimes I want to and am sure I might enjoy myself...I'm just sooo tired! I work from 3am to 9 sometimes 11am...I don't get a nap sometimes suring the day and he keeps me up until 11pm, so I REALLY get no sleep! as bad as this may sound the last time we made love I found myself looking forward to the that bad? Is it normal to feel like this around this time? i dunno

  • just explain it to him like you explained it here. It's perfectly normal to feel so tired

  • It is normal. I was the same way with my pregnancies. Tell him how you feel. He should understand. Good luck!

  • I'd tell him if he wants it, he needs to help you out during the day when he's home so that you guys can get to bed earlier. But yes during pregnancy especially its normal to be that tired. Just explain it to him like you did here.

  • I would just tell him everything you said here. Just be gentle when talking, lol. Oh and leave about the part about wanting it to end. Let him know it's not the sex because it's great (as long as it is), but the pregnancy is just keeping you exhausted. Maybe you can make a date night on the weekend or something after getting some time to rest and then you can both enjoy yourselves. Good luck!

  • It's perfectly normal. I would just tell him that you need time to recoup your energy before being able to commit to his needs. Perhaps have a day on the weekend just to sleep, that way you can wake up and feel a little more refreshed and may be more inclined to surprise him with a little fun.

  • What about him? What about wanting to make him feel loved and cared for and important to you? If you think of it in terms of being a gift to the love of your life, that should make it well worth your effort, even when you are tired. It is better to give than to receive!!

  • Thanks guys...and for your information NannyB. my husband will rarely come home to find himself without a great hot home cooked meal, a bath running for him when he wants it and the dog taken care of (a dog that I didn't want btw). I do everything for my husband, I gave up a career in London for my husband, so don't you dare tell me that I dont make my husband feel loved...
