  • Honestly the only thing that made it not suck for me was to have the baby! ..

  • not sure never solved that problem - the only solutions are lube and creativity. as far as when it got normal again - it never has for me - its been just stupid since i got pregnant the first time

  • I just waiting until after dark and made my attack lol.

    we waited 8 weeks before being sexually active again so that I could have a normal period and let my pill kick in. honestly, it sucked! I was so dry and didn't really enjoy it because i spent so much time worrying about my milk leaking all over the place.

  • I watch Dr.Oz and they JUST went over this subject. Dont have TV or music on at all when going to bed. Use for play. Think of how sex was post-pregnancy, and use jelly. Also if you like play, have him use a vibrator on you. They also say masturbating helps but Im not into that. Masturbating is more of a personal preference.

  • for me the problem is positions! i hate being on top b/c i'm not really confident w/ the big belly. i hate him being on top b/c im squished and the baby is like just sitting there in my belly. we want to try "spooning" or side by side but i honestly dont see how the woman moves at all in either, and then there is from behind but i dont like it that way b/c one i cant see him, which is ok sometimes, but two, there is no stimulation on the front side which is kinda important. what positions worked best?

  • i hated it too when i was pregnant...unlike some chicks who were super horny....i was not at all.....

    positioning never helps...prego sex can be a pain in the ass!

  • I have been a big fan of being on my side, him straddling my lower leg and holding my upper leg. I'm 39 weeks now, but thats how we have usually been resorting to doing it since about 30 weeks. Him holding my leg up makes me feel like the belly is kind of obscured, and we can still make great eye contact and touch each other.

  • Pregnancy sex does suck Atleast when you reach a certain point. I Didnt feel sexy, and dh would always wait too long to get to it and then same as you i just wouldnt be into it by then. The only thing that worked for me was to have the baby. I will say though that after the 4 weeks i was told to wait, it was amazing. We had to wait so long, and the sex we had been having sucked so all that built up and made it some of the best sex we had ever had. So even though it sucks now and if your like me it seemed more of a chore in a way it is so worth it because when you finally do have sex PP it is
