How long did you wait? *Possible TMI*

How long did you wait to have sex after the birth of your child?

Just curious since my DD is 3.5 weeks old and I have no interest in sex anytime soon lol. When my oldest was born I had my sex drive back much sooner.

My oldest was like almost 5 months, thanks to having a cesarean.
My middle was about 6 weeks.. Maybe 8. Took another week to actually be able to though Lol
My youngest is 2 weeks and 4 days, and I've been feeling frisky for almost 2 weeks.. Obviously not acting on it, but damn. I get how women are pregnant so fast after having one Lol. All depends on how each birth goes, I've found. The fastest labor and birth has been the fastest I've felt back to me in any sense!

Always waited the six weeks. My first I got a 3rd degree tear and it was uncomfortable and waited another two weeks.
