Q: Sex drive during second trimester?

How is everyone's sex drive? Mine is basically non-existent! I feel horrible, I thought it was supposed to be on full force 2nd tri? I'm just shy of 20 weeks and I'm basically repulsed by the thought of it! I wonder if there is any correlation to the sex of the baby??? How is everyone else feeling? We are basically newlyweds do this is a huge bummer!

Not sure if it helps anyone out but I found out today that I am having a BOY. I must not have any extra testosterone coursing through my body helping my sex drive! hahah

This is my second pregnancy and it's a girl. The thought of sex during the first and second trimester was just a thing from a horror movie. We dtd though but it was never frequent. ..I was just doing it for hubby. I was always dry and no amount of foreplay could help....tried lubricants but still....it wasn't working out so well.

Even now in the third trimester I'm not really up to it but I can tell you I enjoy it more now when we do it. I'm 38 weeks and 4 days. Of course we have to be creative a lil since I have this big basketball but overall I would say third trimester is definitely for us.

You aren't alone hun. I absolutely feel like bursting into tears at the thought of sex. One funny look and I'm running off to do one thing or another till he forgets about it. I am not happy about it either but I just can't help it! And when we finally do have it, it is like the driest sex ever, absolutely no enjoyment like we had it before and it leaves us both unhappy but we know it will improve after the baby comes. DH is used to it now.
Oh, and I'm having a boy, dunno if it is a gender thing

I'm 22 weeks and five days. I have had no sex drive....none. I want my husband to sit and lay with me but that's it. I feel bad for my hubby because he just doesn't understand but when we do I just don't enjoy it. Oh and we are having a girl. It's been to long with my boys to tell you if there was a sex drive with them.

This is my second pregnancy and just like my first I too am basically repulsed by the thought of sex. It's also been very uncomfortable to have sex through both pregnancies. It took awhile for it return too, my dr said that its normal for some. Your hormones are working in different ways, I nursed for 15 months and my dr said that my hormones were focusing on making milk more than sex.
My first pregnancy I had a boy and I'm currently 32 weeks 6 days with a girl. No sex drive either way. my hubby is definitely disappointed, but being extremely understanding.
