DTD

Who's still enjoying hubby time? Who's sworn it off (and when)? Are you hoping it will help labor along or just taking advantage of the alone time together before baby comes? For mama's who've delivered already, do you think you'll consider DTD once you've cleared your 6/8 week pp checkup or are you not thinking about it?

I have had a crazy wild labido for the last couple weeks, however, I just had to treat another YI. I know, yuck right? So happy time is off limits. I can't wait to start 'helping baby along' again. Wink Usually when I'm this far along it's a 'no touch' policy.

I tried to get DH to DTD that last week that I was pg. Not so much for fun... but to start labor. He declined. ha. I do hope to get back to it right after we're cleared by the doc at 6 weeks. We stopped in the 2nd T so it's been a LONG time. I remember the first time back being a challenge and I would rather go ahead and do it right away. I was thinking maybe I'd get something from Victoria Secret for it just for fun. Smile

We weren't for a long time as DH was terrified of starting up PTL (which I understand with my history). With DD's pregnancy I was on bed/pelvic rest for months so it was never an option. Over the weekend we enjoyed our time together a bit. It was hard to get comfortable but I'm certain it had something to do with the little bit of progress my body made by Monday. I've been wanting to since just to help avoid the repeat amnio tomorrow but DH is usually floored after work (he has really long days) and goes to bed when DD does.

If we make it to tonight, I'm insisting so that we can still maybe get out of needing another amnio or at least help things along a little more.

We DTD several times in the last week and a half of my pregnancy to try and get labor going, it was not comfortable or enjoyable for me. We had a pretty regular sex life throughout the whole pregnancy though. I very very rarely turned him down.

I'm 12 days PP now and DH is already wanting to mess around. Its great that he still thinks I'm hot 12 days PP but it is the last thing I want right now... I'm sure we'll resume soon after my 6 week appt because I already feel like I didn't even have a baby and my bleeding has stopped too.

DH has already been groaning about the 6 week mark too! We DTD the day we had DS. My water broke an hour and 15 minutes after DTD butI was just a sneeze away from active labor anyway and had been going up and down our staircases for a good half hour prior so who knows if any of that had anything to do with the SROM.

You'll get it back. I think it's best not to give yourself a time line or expectations, just go with what feels best for you and you'll be just fine. There are plenty of non sexual ways to be intimate with DH. Smile
