Now this isn't something major obviously. But with all four pregnancies I have been completely put off. I'm now in the late stages but I just have no interest... My dp seems to be peed off after a month.. I just literally have no go. I feel bad but equally I think I'm within my rights as I feel so tired and anaemia is very bad.

We did it 4 times the whole pregnancy. Including the one that conceived him. The last month I was in the mood but it was a logistical nightmare!

My husband "doesn't want to hurt the baby". We got married 3 weeks after our BFP and I think we've dtd about 6 times since then. It's been at least 12 weeks since the last time. I'm 35 weeks now blush

There is nothing I would rather do less at the moment! Zero sex drive. I'm going to have to do 'something' soon though, poor sod. X

I had a weird boost early on but nothing nothing... Nada.... Zip.... In fact I'm worried my hymen may have re grown which may be a bit inconvenient for the birth haha.

It does exist as My sex drive has been quite good throughout ..I'm now 2 days from my due date and still feel in the 'mood' but if you don't then you don't ..there have been lulls in my sex drive over the time me and DH have been together I think lulls in general are very normal.

None at all here and I'm 25 weeks. Last time was mid-Jan and we were both put off by my emerging bump! I'm not sure if we'll try again during the pregnancy. He never asks for it.

He just stakes it personally I think. Where as I say (and have done he four pregnancies) that I am just too tired, too heavy now and it's just not on my agenda. If we have a snuggle he then says he can't help it as he finds me attractive nonetheless but I just say no seriously I'm too tired. Or in this case the past few weeks I've not been well at all.

Most days he doesn't seem bothered but then some he gets in a mood and says sarcy comments.

Exactly the same. 23 weeks and we've dtd 3 times so far since getting the bfp!
And those 3 times were more out of 'well, he needs to have something at least'.
I'm sure his right arm is getting stronger by the day with all the exercise it must be getting!

Glad I'm not the only one. I'm 14wks and dtd only once since we found out at Christmas. I do feel a bit mean but I just have no urge at all.

Im the opposite! My DP wont come near me! I finally spoke to him about it the other day and he admitted he was really freaked out by the pregnancy (this is our 2nd child) and doesn't like the idea! its done my confidence the world of good hmm I hadn't lost my sex drive (29 weeks tomorrow) but now I'm starting to resent him for it and thinking this is going to carry on after I have had the baby! it took me about a year after having our DS1 to actually get any sex drive back!
