I'm not sure if this is normal or not, but I'm 33 weeks (nearly 34), I newly turned 18 and my OH is now 31. He's very excited for our son to be born so all is good in that aspect. We have been together for almost 2 years now with no bumpy periods. We have what i would imagine to be a perfect relationship, he's a great provider treas me like a princess 100% of the time. The only issue we are having at the moment is that he seems to have lost his sex drive quite a bit. We were having sex 2 times a day and now it seems to have diminished to 2 times a week. He doesn't initiate it anymore and while I have a high sex drive, he doesn't. Would this be due to the pregnancy or something else? Has anyone else had anything like this?
I have the total opposite problem , it's me that has went off it! Like literally could count in once had how many times we have had sex since christmas.
It might be that he's scared of hurting the baby., or maybe he doesnt think you will be in to it? I think this is quite a common issue in pregnancy! I've heard alot of people say they're OH has gone off sex xx
Some men get freaked out by it as they are worried about hurting the bubba. Ive not had sex since the day we conceived 7 months ago because he feels weird (and to be honest so do I). Twice a week is still quite alot. I wouldnt worry. x
Mine has as well. He says it's because he finds it a bit strange now I'm pregnant and I think now when he looks at me, he is seeing me as the mother of his child, and not necessarily as his wife if that makes sense!
As long as we get our sex life back at some point after the baby is born, I'm not too bothered.
I think it's normal and doesn't necessarily mean that your OH is cheating on you!!
