Just that.

DH and I are pretty lazy in this respect nowadays. Just wondered what other people's 'normal' is?

I don't know to be honest, every few weeks on average? Far too tired for anything more than that, he does love a cuddle to go off to sleep though which is sweet.grin

Twice in 7 months. Pregnant and totally not up for it

Ibloodyhatethomasthetankengine Thu 15-Dec-16 19:35:59

That's actually twice more than I managed cats when pg with DS..... That was a loooong 40 weeks for DH.

Roughly every 28 days. When her hormones overcome our exhaustion. sad

God not much at the moment (10mo). Maybe 2/3 times a month?

luckylucky24 Thu 15-Dec-16 19:38:59

Once a week at best when the DC's are in bed.

The whole act? At least once a week. Can be 2/3 times.

Usually fill in the gaps with a quick fumble.

4-5 times a week. More like 3 times a week if his workload is heavy and he arrives back later than his usual 8pm.

2 or 3 times a week. Come what may. Or i go a bit funny.

Most days, they're teens now so not so exhausting the downside is we have to be very quiet.

Stillwishihadabs Thu 15-Dec-16 19:39:50

3-4 times a month, it's been the same for years except when ttc

AndShesGone Thu 15-Dec-16 19:43:22

Kids gone to uni so every week. We never did it with them in the house. Got some shags when they went out as they got older though.

JC23 Thu 15-Dec-16 19:43:59

Twice a week

Schmoochypoos Thu 15-Dec-16 19:45:00

About once a week. Less when the youngest was still bf and I was up with him in the night

Have a 4& a half month old baby (had bad stitches and heavy bleeding for 6 weeks pp) and have only had sex 3 times since he was born. Twice in the past fortnight though - once a week would suit me fine TBH.

missyB1 Thu 15-Dec-16 19:46:25

About twice a week, I know that sounds a cliche but it literally is how often we do it. Used to be a lot more but we've had a stressful year and we are both knackered.

FrankAndBeans Thu 15-Dec-16 19:46:29

4-5 times a week.

TheBadgersMadeMeDoIt Thu 15-Dec-16 19:48:23

Once or twice a month at most. It's not the presence of DC that's a problem - she could sleep through an earthquake. It's the sheer lack of energy. Can barely summon the oomph to climb the stairs these days.

MrGrumpy01 Thu 15-Dec-16 19:49:26

I have a child with asd, he is never asleep before me and when he is awake is noisily roaming the house.

Take from that what you want.

Ibloodyhatethomasthetankengine Thu 15-Dec-16 19:52:46

fshock at those of you 4-5 times a week. I had no idea you existed outside of movies and TV

thegirlinthecar Thu 15-Dec-16 19:55:26

Twice a week on average . It's the most I can manage when dcs still wake up so much at night

Smartleatherbag Thu 15-Dec-16 19:57:01

Do it? How coy!
Not often. Both on libido killing meds.

iamadaftcoo Thu 15-Dec-16 19:59:22

We never did it with them in the house.

Not even when they were babies?

MrsMattBomer Thu 15-Dec-16 20:01:08

We're married for 23 years and have 15 year old twins.

Probably three times a week on average? DP works away 6 months of the year so we tend to make it count when he's at home.
