Much as I truly loathe airing sex life on mn...
I am breastfeeding, ds2 sleeps well waking only once, I am not overly tired, but the thought of sex makes my toes curl up

i know it is quite possibly normal, but I hate it
I want it back
How do I do it?

Mine still hasn't reappeared and dd is now 2.7!! Sorry.

5 months on and still breastfeeding seems a bit optimistic, but I don't know, perhaps you and dp need some time together having romantic meals or something?

Have sex...will remind you why you used to want it more often!
Sorry, bit flippant, but you can get out of the 'habit' of sex as it were and need to get back into it...so to speak...

Have you looked down the back of the sofa?

I know how you feel, after DS1 was born, I lost my mojo. I'd given up on ever finding it, however, DS2 was conceived 12 months after DS1 was born, so I must have found it eventually

Incidentally, 2 years post-pg I still haven't found my old libido, but I am developing a new one.

when we have done it, has been lovely, so am very ???

this was our last baby (3rd ds13 dd 5 and ds2 5mths) dp joked that now that I had no more babies to make I'd gone off it.

We do have disparate sex drives mind you

Time is an issue - with teen ds1 going to bed 10pm, us off at 10.30 (dp commutes 1.5hrs each way every weekday)
dp is out of the door 6.30am home by 8pm...
I'm wrung out by then with 3 kids....

I wish I could buy it on ebay

Possibly it's gone off on holiday with my DHs labido?

DD is ten months. I have more frequent VAT returns than tours of conjugal duty!

hub swap ? LOL

Piffle Wed 15-Aug-07 18:00:11

cod I'm ok with that...
think dp rather less so

relay TMI

popped foot over early am to check if he had gone to work yet (I'm good at sleeping through anything but ds2)
Dp presumed ardour and passion.
I found he was still there and assuredly went back to sleep

later that night was called a tease.

I wonder?

note
foot over as far as his ankle

well I id think that if I put out at night then the morning would be less fraught with danger...
but drinking nah would give ds2 bellyache I reckon... just what I need, another moaning male
