    So how is everyone's sex drive. Have you noticed difference between your pregnancies? Anything related to the baby's sex?

    With DD I had a lower drive and this time it seems to be more...very odd...

    I have never had a high sex drive.....and I can't say that pregnancy has ever changed that for me....poor DH.

    I'll add on after reading Sandra's post that I'm similar and don't have a huge drive when not pg either. Definitely worse when pg but it isn't like a dramatic change!

    Sandra: 4 kids <6 years apart, people probably think you guys are addicts We've gotten some funny comments to that effect since announcing this one (third in <4 years).

    Oh don't get me wrong, I don't normally have a strong desire at all...and less so with DD. It seems a bit more now which is odd. Perhaps I'm just more relaxed with #2 or it does have something to do with hormones.

    LOL, people probably do think we are sex addicts LOL. DH probably wishes that was true.....

    Maybe I will have my hormone levels checked after this pregnancy. I have just never been one to really EVER crave sex.

    I've never been one to crave sex, either. However, I talk about it alot because DH wants it - but is hesitant to ask because I'm pregnant and he knows I feel like crap alot. So, he won't ask because he doesn't want me to feel bad about saying no. He's being a total sweetheart, BUT I'm not going to turn him down, whether I want to or not. So, if I talk about it like I want it (which, generally, I don't) then he gets on board. I know it's stupid, but ..that's how things roll around here..lol

    Yeah never have a very big sex drive, and it gets worse with pregnancy. It definitely frustrates DH, and he thinks I am purposefully holding out on him. But I just have no desire, except every once in awhile. That being said, I do go along and let him do what he wants to do a few times a week.

    Ya, I've often thought about doing that. I am normally a very logical person and I'm not really guided by emotions. Not what you'd expect from a girl but I guess that's why I'm a software developer. Logic is important! I think perhaps that lack of emotion has to do with a hormone issue. When I'm pg I'm like a real girl...crying at silly things. LOL. I sort of worry if I get this 'fixed' I'll suck at my job and cry all the time...so I"m not sure I want to know. :P

    Jessica: My hubby never asks anymore. PG or not. If I didn't say something then we'd never DTD. It's annoying! I mean, constantly being asked an not wanting to would probably be more annoying though. He's pretty much ALWAYS game...so he'd be asking me every 20 seconds I bet. :P
