So -

For those of you willing to share - how often do you do it and do you like it?

Why so rare?

DH has a coworker who can expect to get it about 12 times in a year - that's once a month?!?!? That's just not enough for dh or I to function properly...

My lo stopped sleeping through the night at about 4 months when he became more active, he wants to nurse all night long. So we started cosleeping.... for the last 4 months. Trying to figure out how when and where is so difficult it doesn't happen often at all and I really want to.

Well it depends. When all goes our way 3-4 times a week. When kids are teething then maybe once a week. We aim for at least twice a week though.

We do it 5 times or more a week. I love it. There are nights I'm not really in the mood and think ugh, I hope he doesn't want any tonight, but if he does he's pretty good about getting me in the mood! I can't imagine not having a good sex life, the few months after giving birth to my son where the recommend not having sex was rough and we wound up having sex anyway.

I'm not a night person. But the mornings that he doesn't work we will fool around after I work out provided dd is still asleep. Otherwise if he's off on the weekend well do it during nap time. But on average it's once or twice a week

My son is 12 1/2 weeks and we've done it twice since the month before he was born... So 2 times in 4 months. I have no desire, it's as dry as the Sahara Desert down there, condoms irritate me, and I'm not on birth control. I am done having babies and my hubby doesn't want to get fixed until September. So until he's shooting blanks, hanky panky is pretty much non existent.

We only DTD 2 times my entire pregnancy, up until the last week or so (trying to start labor) and haven't since the day I went into labor. So none in the last 2 months. It's on hold until my period comes back.

Normally it's maaaaybe twice a week normally. At this point, it's probably 10 times total since last July (LMP before pregnancy Aug 8).

I didn't get my first post-partum period until my dd was 26 months old. I have a weak sex drive but even I couldn't have held out that long. ;-)

LOL. I could go the rest of my life without it. Honestly, I get zero desire. Now that we're finished having kids I see absolutely no rason to do it! I'm sure DH will be itching for some sooner than I wish.

I hear ya, sister. If it weren't for the occasional glass of beer or wine, it wouldn't ever be happening. ;-)
