Pregnancy: 8 weeks
Wow…Now that I’m pregnant, Sex is so much fun, well not that it wasn’t before, but there are no worries about failed birth control, I’m free! I kind of feel like I’m getting away with something here, and I like it! I’ve really been in the mood for sex since I found out I was pregnant a week ago! Life is good!
Pregnancy: 14 weeks
Feeling like crap today, I puked for the 3rd time and it’s only noon! My husband has been bugging me to have sex for a week now, and all I want to do is sleep. I just really don’t feel like it! You know come to think of it, I’m starving…heading to the kitchen now!
Pregnancy: 20 weeks
Sex is awkward. I feel like a fat pig, nothing fits, my boobs hurt and are those stretch marks? what gives?
Pregnancy: 39 weeks
I WANT THIS BABY OUT NOW! Although sex is the furthest thing from my mind at the moment, I read somewhere that it could possibly make you go into labor, so maybe I’ll give it a whirl after all. I’m willing to try anything at this point!
Postpartum: 1 week
Is it possible to never want to have sex again? No, I shouldn’t say that, but my vagina is not having a good day!Enough said.
Postpartum: 6 weeks
I got the green light to exercise, and I’m going for it! Sex however, is not the exercise I had in mind. Still healing and I could personally use another few weeks or months! LOL!
Postpartum: 8 weeks
Finally Caved! Umm….can you say awkward? I’m still too tired most days to actually do it though…and I’m so not feeling sexy at the moment!
Postpartum: 16 weeks
Slowly getting back in the groove, my vagina is finally back in working order, but my self-esteem is in the dumps! Not “feeling” very sexy at all still, I’m working on it though.
Postpartum: 25 weeks
Sex has never felt better! Losing weight, feeling good and totally loving my husband!
So maybe not all women are loving sex at 6 months postpartum. Let’s face it, being on baby duty all day long, does not help to put you in the mood. But I figure, if you have time to cook dinner, wash dishes and shovel dog poop, then more than likely, you can make time for a little romance with your loved one, right? With busy schedules and new responsibilities, here’s how this Mommy keeps her romance alive with a little effort and a lot of creativity…
Shower Together. When the opportunity presents itself and the baby naps, My husband and I like to shower together, which allows us to be close to one another, all while cleaning the baby vomit smell off of me!
Perfume. Yes… so simple, but effective! What husband wouldn’t appreciate you smelling nice for him?
Lingerie. It took me almost 6 months to work up the nerve to slip on something sexy again. But once you do, I found it can really spice things up and give you an excuse to go shopping for your new sexy bedroom attire! No complaints yet!
Wine. My husband and I love to drink wine. Since I’m still nursing, I have to be cautious with how much I consume. That being said, starting out your night with some wine present while reminiscing is always a good thing!
Cuddle Naked. Put the baby or kids to bed, pop in a movie and cuddle naked. This has a 99.9% sex success rate when applied in that order!
Love Notes. I’m not talking about the long, sappy kind of love note here…I’m talking about the short and sweet little messages you can leave on a post-it note and put on his nightstand, his bathroom mirror or inside of his wallet. I always write sweet little messages like “Can’t wait to see you tonight baby” or “You are so sexy.” I love doing this for my husband, it’s fun and easy and always puts a smile on his face!
Don’t just kiss…Make Out. That’s right! Make-out like you used to! Why?….Because it’s fun, you’re in love and don’t you forget it!
So what are you waiting for? Go find your inner “sexy” …and…well….the rest is up to you!
