  • baby #1 a gross awkward quickie around 3 months and resumed normal around 9 mos post partum
    baby #2 got the standard OK at 6wks

    my best friend had a rough 3rd trimester and they had to abstain. The babies umbilical cord stump hadn't even fallen off yet before they were back to their normal 2-3 times a day. Grossness. I don't think they made it a week even.

  • oh, my baby #1 gross/awkward quickie around 3mos was because my c-section was still wide open and being packed twice daily by either a home health nurse or my husband. Not sexy at all. Very awkward, and less than 90 seconds from start to finish. lolz ....
