  • Diane....I don't have any sex drive either. Dh gets soooo mad at me and doesn't understand (not that I understand it myself). I have always had a healthy sex drive but not anymore (sorry tmi). I think alot of it for me is the extra weight and not feeling sexy anymore.....not to mention being exhausted all the time
    Isn't it great that we not only go through IVF together, but now the after effects also

    Things are sloooowly improving here
    . I really think it's taken me a looooooong time to heal properly down there just for starters. I'm still carying a stone of baby-weight. But my body image has improved to the point where I can now quickly walk past a mirror whilst in just my undies, I just don't look in it!
    When K's having a bad time with her sleep (Teething is sooo hard for her
    ) dh has finally worked out that he *can* cope for a morning whilst I catch up on zzzz's at the w/end
    This has also helped me feel a) more energetic and b) appreciated/understood. I'm still waiting on
    to show her horrid face around here, but as I've said before, K's a boobmonster, so her absence isn't surprising. I'm finally back in some lovely non-b'feeding undies tho' having said ya-boo-sucks to keeping wearing those horrid things over xmas. I've always felt nice undies helps things along a bit...

    Babies really do do a number on us for sure!

  • This is what I think about the sex drive issue. We were horny (sorry) because we were trying to get pregnant and that's nature's way. We got what we wanted (sorry again) so nature takes it away. I think it's totally natural but does suck. So here's my question. Has anyone's dh's broke out the candles, soft music, romantic bottle of wine and tried to woo someone to the bedroom. Or is it "I'm horney, I need sex, you have to have sex with me, I have needs, blah blah, whine, whine?" I'm sorry but if I was a guy and wanted to have sex I'd be putting out a LOT more effort. Think back when we first started dating our dh's. Wasn't there a lot of dinners, walks in the park, holding hands, etc... before we put out? What makes them think they don't have to do anything but beg to get us to bend over the washing machine? Sorry again. Has anyone's dh said "you look beautiful, you're such a great mom, you amaze me, I love you, come here let me rub your back, you must be exhausted taking care of our baby all day, let me take care of you????? NO! I get "hey fat butt, rip out any jeans today". Sorry, I'm not getting ANYTHING out so he can rip on it! Last night he said it was depressing him not getting any. What a *#()%&)( joke!
