Is it just us, or do other couples , have a set time/day once a week for 'adult time' (I am trying to be polite because I am quite prude!!)

(we have been together 8 years, have a 3yr old and a bump at 38 weeks)

We co-sleep with 3 year old, have from early on, and on on Sunday morning, hubby takes him downstairs and puts telly on for him to keep him otherwise engaged!!

It was not always like this, we were, lets say, rather more spontaneous when we were newly wed!! We have just settled into a pattern, where we both know where we stand and I particularly enjoy the routine, and look forward to Sundays all the more!!

Does anyone think this is unreasonable?? Or quite normal??

Not as rude a posting!!! Yes, JUST once a week! But, I like it all the more because it is just once!!! Something to look forward to.

I am also 38 weeks and think YABU for showing off about still finding time for/wanting/enjoying jiggy time at this stage envy.

We have no set pattern. We've always found ways to be spontaneous, despite co-sleeping, although the frequency has declined, as the tiredness with 2 (almost 3) young dcs tends to be a bit overwhelming.

Ew ew ew ew ew at IvyKaty's mates parents letting their poor offspring know that (a) they even have sex and (b) when <dons prude's hat where parents are concerned>

hanaboo - Sometimes, we do hear the pitter patter of feet on the stairs! The joy of parenthood!

lol 'teat time'

My goodness, my OH would go crazy if he could only have it once a week! Nope, in this house the kids have always been firmly in their own rooms from 16 weeks(ish) and we are at it every night and every morning. Keeps me smiling all day!

I miss Sunday Morning Jiggy Time. sad Now we have 19m DS, who prefers to watch his telly in company. hmm

YANBU to be perfectly happy - I should be so lucky!

Grendle: Well, DO NOT form mental pictures of 38 weeks being jiggy!!

Come to think about it, I might up the frequency a bit, just because I know it will be about 6 months before we get back to it after birth! I guess I am making the most of my body before it is wrecked !! It makes jiggy quite interesting when you have a bump to work round!

eggontoast Fri 30-Oct-09 19:18:53

Grendle, if you thought I was showing off - look at the little monkey!!! Monkey, you go girl!!!

monkeyfacegrace Fri 30-Oct-09 19:21:27

Haha its a bit of standing joke between our group of friends. We lasted 4 days after the birth of DS2 before we were at it again! Im a total 100% believer in the fact that sex is not a chore, its amazing and nothing can make you closer to your man.

Jujubean77 Fri 30-Oct-09 19:22:21

wow every night and morning, I am living in another world....

eggontoast Fri 30-Oct-09 19:26:43

I think libido is perhaps an appetite - some people just have a bigger one!

Best all round if both partners have the same size though!

eggontoast Fri 30-Oct-09 19:28:03

And FOUR DAYS?? How on earth is that possible?? I was still sore ish 6 - 12 MONTHS after birth! And bleeding for a month!! Perhaps you are both ADDICTED!!!!

Lucky you for having DC that let you have Sunday morning jiggy time!! My DD who is 7 would never allow it.

We have sex whenever we are not too tired and once DC3 are all in bed and hopefully in deep sleep. DD has walked in a few times as she's a terrible sleeper and her sense of timing is shocking blush.
