sex while pregnant...

My husband and I have had a fairly normal sex life the whole pregnancy. TILL NOW!! I’m 36 weeks pregnant and the doctor said it was fine to still be having sex. But all of the sudden he just stopped wanting to have sex. It has been 18 days ( yes I have been counting , don’t judge me .. haha) but I’m losing my mind here. I guess my question is… Did this happen to you? what do I do?

  • well let me tell you that it is up to him if he feels comfortable, because when i was pregnant msband reached a time where he didn't want to be with me because i had a pregnancy smell that he couldn't stand, so really is up to what he is feeling or what is fears migt be.

    Good Luck in you pregnancy!

  • Poor hubby! Mine wants it all the time, but I can't unless we cheat and don't do what the doctor says. Which has happened a few times. Not able to since 3rd month now I am 8 months. Oh, do I want it. I can't wait till the little guy gets here.

  • my poor hubby came home from deployment, got it a couple of times, but it was not a very good experience for either of us. Luckily, he's ok if he does or doesn't. I would ask him why maybe and alot of guys do have the worry of hurting the baby. Remember that your body has changed alot and things may not feel the same to him at this point especially if the baby has dropped at all!
