  • In the beginning my sex drive increased but I am now 37 weeks and it has decreased because my belly is to big and it is harder to move around and is very uncomfortable.

  • The increased blood flow to the pelvic region definitely worked in my favor. I had the best orgasms of my life while I was pregnant! Once the morning sickness subsided, my libido was higher, and with the increased discharge, I was always lubes up and ready to go. Toward the end, it was more difficult to find comfortable ways to go about our business, but we managed it.

  • Well it was good in the beginning but towards the 7 the month and on it deceased completely. I think mostly because it was simply hard to breath and just uncomfortable to even try! But I have a good friend that tells me that her love life was just the opposite and was crazy amazing the entire pregnancy. Good luck! And congratulations

  • It absolutely ruined it... Prior to my first pregnancy I had a rather "overactive" libido, once I got pregnant with my oldest sex became horridly painful and I lost ALL interest. Now, when I'm pregnant, like now, we can't have sex, it's just to painful for me... And when I'm not pregnant we might do it once every month or 6weeks... Even when I am "in the mood" it's just so painful I don't enjoy it... So we have become more of a DIY household in that respect...

  • For us the first couple of months were difficult, alot of anxiety due to a previous miscarriage so it took me a while to feel happy that the pregnancy was healthy and we could actually have sex. The morning sickness and fatigue really didn't help and our sex life really did dwindle for a while. I think I was around 20 weeks before I actually felt I could enjoy sex and now it's fine, I'm 34 weeks and we have some fun experimenting with positions due to my big bump lol. Trying to make the most of it before our little one comes along!

  • Decreased. Neither my husband or I wanted to have sex when I was pregnant either time.

  • I had WAY more sex when I was pregnant. It just felt so much better when i was pregnant than before. Also I was never able to have an "O" before I had my first child. Since then I have one almost every time. I guess everything moves down after having a baby and makes it more enjoyable!!!woohoo

  • My sex drive decreased. My DH thinks that I am the sexiest person in the world. I dont feel like that though.If we do have sex I can't go for long because i get scared that the baby is being hurt.
