ok i warned you. i just had my baby(he is 18 days to be exact) and i'm wanting sex like crazy. I thought after having a baby your sex drive is low and even when you breastfeeding it is worst(or so i read) but not me. i didn't have a sex drive AT ALL when i was pregnant with him and didn't do it to much. I don't know if this is normal because when i google it low sex drive pops up. i'm not doing anything until my six weeks is up and the doctor give me the ok and not until i get on birth control(not looking to have anymore babies soon). I guess what i am asking is is it normal to feel like this? Is anyone else feeling this way or felt this way after having their lo.
It does happen. If you visit the Postnatal Support section on B&B you'll find lots of posts about ladies who "can't wait." My sister in law and her husband tore her episiotomy stitches and she promptly popped out two babies ten months apart as a result. Which was kind of gross, but they are kind of gross! (that's a reflection on how we feel about them!
There's such a rush of hormones after birth it affects people differently.
oh ya! I am the same. During pregnancy I wasn't super interested, but after having my dd I wanted to do it so bad. We waited the 6 weeks, and it hurt like hell but I still want to do it! we have only been using condoms, which makes me nervous but i am breastfeeding so hoping that works until I get on the pill. Don't want anymore LO's for a few years!!
SAME!!!! As soon as my bleeding stopped I was in there!! 3ish weeks pp!! My sex drive is better now than pre pregnancy & I love it. TBH I think its the lack of birth control not messing with my hormones anymore. Just using condoms & its like every other day!!
I had a c-section tho I firmly believe that if I had a ncb I would not have been so interested.
