  • I would say it's normal. You feel differently when your pregnant...and this pregnancy for me has been one like your feeling...I don't want to have sex, I hate when DH grabs my boobs, butt or anything. It's actually pretty annoying, and before I didn't really mind. I feel bad too, but sometimes I just have to have my space! A LOT OF IT!

  • A decrease in sex drive can be very normal in pregnancy. It is the hormones/emotions. Usually it will pick back up but sometimes it doesn't until after the baby is born. Just try to explain it to your Husband. Make sure that he understands that you love him and are still very attracted to him. It's just things going on in your body.

  • Not wanting to be sexually active can be very normal to some during pregnancy.

  • It'll bounce around. In my third trimester I was coming on to my husband so much, he wanted nothing to do with me. I didnt think it was possible for a woman (especially a huge unattractive feeling pregnant one) could crave sex more than a man could give. It'll come back to you....hopefully.

  • it goes up and down, darlin. one day you'll rape him three times in a row, and then you won't let him touch you for three weeks. it is very, very normal, especially since you're still pretty early. just relax, you'll be wanting to jump his bones before long lol. one pp suggested talking to hubby, letting him know he's still loved. that is a great idea
