Channy - I haven't lost my libido but have noticed a bit of a drop. Hopefully it'll all come good once bub is born and you're all healed.
I'm getting waxed in 3 weeks to prep for birth; not looking forward to it but I can't see a thing past my belly and boobs these days.
So many cute babies and lovely bumps! My bump is still tiny haha!
I have no libido either TMI poor DH was cuddling me the other night and I could feel his doodle wriggling (involuntarily) against my back, I couldn't stand it!!! I felt like that awkward tween that went red and ran at the mention of boy bits....ironic considering how we got here in the first place. Any suggestions on getting it back or not making my DH feel so rejected?
I still get xxx waxing done every 4-6 weeks, yes it's much more sensitive but just ask the tech to do smaller strips at a time and work in an even pattern incase you can't hack it the whole hog. I grit my teeth and bare it and just remind myself that I'm getting psyched up for labour and birth
I had plans of getting waxed around 38 weeks.... well C put an end to that. Though I was more apologetic to the OB about my hairy legs I figure she's seen it all before..
All this is making me feel better
I'm still dtd but only once a wk and I feel like it's a chore I play along tho coz I don't want DH to feel upset about it since I used to be totally up for 3-4/wk just hope it comes back, I miss the old me lol. Once were going its great just really can't be bothered if you know what I mean.
Pony I feel ya
Channy I did XXX waxing the whole way including the day before I was induced. It can be slightly more painful but I didn't find it so. Most beauticians are pretty good with it.
Also with libido no clues on helping, although one of the naturapaths in my DIG said there is a herbal supplement to take which I can ask about if you like, but the mums in my group just explained to their partners that while they wished they did want to have sex the pregnancy hormones was causing a negative reaction and suggested their partners help themselves lol. I hope it passes for you soon.
I still have a libido, but I just prefer to sleep ATM. I'm exhausted.
Just had my midwives appointment- Toby is head down and has finally started descending into the pelvis. He's not fully engaged but he's deep enough that she doesn't expect he will pop out again. So time to squat and bounce him into position.
My BP is still 120/70, so yay and my fundal height is measuring a week ahead as usual. And I did the GBS swab.
We had a sneaky scan, and he's in a great position for birth. Good boy!! So I'm a happy mama to be
Oh and she has suggested going to my GP and getting the whooping cough vac now, as its gradually becoming the done thing as having it in pregnancy gives newborns a fair bit of immunity compared to waiting for their shots. So I'll get that done next week!
Rainbow, DH and I had our whooping cough vaccines while I was pregnant. As did all the grandparents.
Channy, we didn't DTD too much while I was pregnant, but I looked after DH as best I could. My libido came back about 4 weeks after giving birth (once the pain and discomfort went away). Then waited til the bleeding stopped and ob gave me the all clear
