low sex drive?

hi ladies,


i'm 5 weeks and a few days and i have had absolutely no desire to DTD.  poor DH, i feel so sorry but i just can't get in the mood!  has anyone else experienced it?  when does it go away?!

I'm actually the opposite.  From six weeks to now, I was surprisingly in heat.  But DH refused to do anything until we had our first prenatal appt and the doc ok'd it.  Even after she gave us the green light, he still doesn't want to take a chance and hurt the now "kumquat."  He wants to wait til the second trimester.  I appreciate his concern and patience but admittedly, am a little frustrated : /

sounds like we need to switch symptoms and everyone would be happy!  ;)

Haileghb I often hear both from pregnant women. Some have no desire to DTD at all and some ( like dorkmeetsnerd and I) get extra frisky. Maybe it will all change once 2nd trimester hits ;) I have heard that quite a few times too. Tell your Dh to be patient and maybe get him a toy? Lol.... Ya know a "private time" toy he can use alone hehe ;)

My friend swears by this:
Extra frisky it's a girl
Zero sex drive it's a boy

So far it has been pretty accurate. I had a boy, zero drive. My friends are having a girl - she is extra frisky.
Guess we will see :-)

Jen I hope you're right because that means we're having a boy.  We were told by the doctor to wait until my appointment today to DTD since I was having some bleeding but I havent had any sex drive since we found out we were PG.

Well, that theory would prove to be incorrect with me. I am having a girl and my sex drive is......................I DON'T KNOW WHERE IT IS, definitely do not have any desire to have sex....boooo!

That theory did not pan out for me either :-P. I am having a boy (no mistake about it at 29 weeks) and I have been soo frisky from the very beginning with no end in sight lol. Dh is obviously seriously happy that nothing changed hehe ;)
I really think it all depends on many things like hormones and how your body handles the pregnancy, and not on the sex of the baby.

lol princessjen!  Your theory seems to be accurate in my case! I'm having a girl and my drive has definitely amped up!  It was completely miserable when I had to be on pelvic rest from 6 to 16 wks but we've been making up for lost time ;)

well DH will be happy to hear about the boy theory!  he said to me last night "i better get a boy out of all this!" hah!  all other ole wives tales are pointing to girl so far - including the date of conception being late in the week and the chinese gender predictor.  out of all of our friends, only 1 has a girl and there are at least 10 boys, so we're expecting to raise the girl count!
