    It used to be 2 weeks, but now that we've only DTD 4 or 5 times since I got pregnant (a year ago), I think our definition has changed a bit! I'm anxious to get back on the horse, but the one time we tried pp, it did not go well.

    @Mrs Green Grass: My BIL is going through a pretty nasty divorce right now, so he told DH and I that they used to do it every 44 days or so lol! So, you aren't alone hah

    Lately probably 2-3 weeks. DH has been super busy at work...he hit his 40 hrs for the week at shift start yesterday...so he comes home exhausted and sore. And the baby has been up every hour or two all night and his naps suck so I'm exhausted. We usually try to make it a priority, but right now not so much.

    @mrsgreengrass: You and your dh have been through SO much! I can totally see how "it" doesn't happen very often with having the streess of baby health issues, etc.

    Well, during pregnancy it's pretty non-existent. Before getting pregnant, during non-O times once a week was normal, more than that felt like a dry spell. We'll see what happens once the baby arrives!!

    We haven't had sex in 4 months Pregnancy killed my sex drive AND makes it super uncomfortable when we do try.

    After a week dh starts acting like he is dying and thinks I don't love him any more... lol sometimes its a few weeks in between.

    Pre pregnancy I'd say 2 weeks would be stretching it. Since 3rd trimester and post pregnancy? Sheesh... It's been the longest dry spell ever! I asked DH if he's missing it or too tired to think about it and he said "too tired". Lol. Get cleared in a week but we'll see how often we can get around to sexy time!
