Is this normal?

I love my DP. We have a DS (12) and twins on the way (I'm 21weeks).

Recently I am finding myself attracted to a friend of mine. A female friend.

I haven't said anything to her or to him. I certainly haven't done anything. I just... I think I need reassurance that I'm not going crazy, is all.

I have no scientific back up for this statement at all .... but I think it's hormonal ... the only time I ever had "same sex " sexual dreams was when I was pregnant . Think it's completely normal and I bet it will pass as soon as you have baby 😊

I've read that studies show that pregnant women often find themselves attracted to other women when they never have been before. Definitely a hormonal thing op grin

It is driving me to distraction, though...

(How much information is too much information here??)

My wife had same sex dreams when she was pregnant too.

Just enjoy enjoy them. Hell, maybe tell your DP about them but saying it was a random woman rather than your friend. He might enjoy it you describing the details smile

Oops. Misread the OP.
Yeah, if it's daydreaming just feeling attracted to her otherwise maybe don't share that with him.

I'm definitely having sexy dreams about her too D:

Just out of interest, are you expecting twin girls, OP?

jayisforjessica Sun 23-Oct-16 11:04:26

Boy/girl. Why's that?

OP put that colon on the other side of that D. (wow that sounds dodgy)

It's probably just hormones. As long as you don't feel it's putting a barrier between you and your DP then there's no harm in it as a fantasy.
