    I'm at 5 weeks barely and starting to experience this.
    BUT-I thought sex drive was decreased in early pregnancy?
    How many of you are going through the same thing?
    Even more TMI, how about more intense O's? :winkwink:

    I am exactly the same. I had a high sex drive before, and I still have one! My O's are the same too.

    Now if only I can get DH to have a high sex drive! He never had one. He only gave me lots of BD to conceive. Now I barely get any!

    I read somewhere that the increased blood flow down there makes it more sensitive which is why its sooo much more intense during pregnancy!! My man loves when I am pregnant simply for my super high sex drive... gotta admit I am loving it too. But we both always have a high sex drive. Also later in the pregnancy you have very explicit sexual dreams and if you don't do something about it you will be ready to go all day!! lol

He works in the tree business and there is just something about work boots and construction type apparel that REALLY seems to be "turning me on" lately :haha:

    I am the same way! I was with my son and we had a better sex life when I was pregnant then when I wasn't! I am only JUST pregnant now, like just found out yesterday and I have noticed it already!! Guess its one of the good perks to being pregnant :)

    That's okay:). When I was pregnant with my 1st I had zero sex drive and I honestly don't think my now ex husband and I even had sex once during the whole 9 months!

    So I have been spotting since 5 weeks on and off and that drives me nuts because I really want to make love to my husband and I am scared.
    But yeah, definitely increased for me too.

    I heard that your sex drive might predict gender..?? :shrug: Boy = high sex drive; girl = low?? I'm sure that's just a wives tale, but I'm curious.

    My sex drive is usually pretty low, but it was higher when I was pregnant with my son. With this pregnancy, I have ZERO sex drive.

    Mine was super high when I was expecting dd, after her it went to... next to nothing. It was a pain to convince. I think that's what took us almost 3 years. Hard to get timing right at 3 times a month. We haven't done anything in over a month. It's kind of sad but I really don't want to...

    No! Mine has decreased, which I am sad about! I have just been so sick that I haven't wanted to really- but when we have been able to have some action, it has been way more sensitive, which is great! except that I can't hang on long enough without getting nauseous!!! haha, I can't wait til the nausea is gone and hubby and I can get back to a more normal routine!!!!

    There might be something in this, the increase in testosterone or something. I had a higher than normal sex drive with my last pregnancy, would wake my husband up in the middle of the night :blush:. This one I have been asleep by 7pm every night! Lately though I have experienced a higher sex drive and more intense O's, as I am feeling less tired and sick :happydance:
