Quoting newmommie12:" Thanks guys I get that they want u to wait the 6 weeks for many reasons but me and DH have not had sex ... [snip!] ... it for like EVER now lol, I was just wondering how long others waited. And if others really waited the standard 6 weeks."
I don't think SO and I had sex for like two months straight toward the end of the pregnancy. We were super busy and overwhelmed; sex was the last thing on our minds with a newborn coming into the picture (especially since neither of us have ever been "baby people"/had never held a baby before our own).
I was so
terrified of ever getting pregnant again that I seriously considered remaining abstinent... like, forever. Probably just crazy pregnancy brain talking, but at one point, I hated pregnancy enough to legitimately never have sex again. The reasonable part of me told me that was ridiculous and would be terrible for our relationship, so I wrote the idea off. But really though, can't wait til I'm 25/I can find a doctor willing to fix me. Every time I have sex now, I'm anxious and paranoid.
