    You know, it took us a good 3 years after my last one (Been together 6 years) to get back into more than once a month. It wasn’t me it was him. We have a very open communication marriage so it wasn’t that my body changed, etc. He just got comfortable in less frequency. Nothing is every the same after kids, but it is better :D

    My situation is a tad different. I didn’t meet my hubby till after I was a mom. There’s times I wish he had had the opportunity to have known my pre-pregnancy/birth body, but I’ve quickly gotten over that hang up. Strangely now, the more kids we have the better and more frequent our life in the bedroom has become. I don’t really think that has anything to do with the kids though, but more the result of our relationship after years and years of progression. It’s crazy to think that I’ve been with him for more than 1/3 of my life. I think that really helps add to the love and intimacy and exploration that one can have beneath the sheets ;) But I DO yearn for a quieter bed….

    It’s true, it’s like learning about your body all over again. I don’t know how people can jump right in. I need to be feeling it to do it – and after the baby, I had no desire at all.

    Great article! This is so helpful for new moms who don’t know what to expect. It is different for everyone, but I think we all go through those same feelings and changes. Not only we, the new moms, go through changes and experience different emotions regarding sex, but the new dads do too. It’s wonderful that you guys have “gotten your groove back” after your first child. It is so important to remember that your relationship and intimacy are just as important as the new baby! Thank you for sharing your story!

    My husband tells me all the time that he misses the lady that he dated, haha! Things changed so much after our son was born. I felt different, things worked a little different, and honestly, it still hurts from time to time. We are still learning how to do things 5 years later, but it is getting more and more fun every time.

      I hear you on things working differently! And on hurting sometimes still. I mean our whole body adjusted to accommodate these babies …I’d be amazed if they returned completely to normal. My favorite shirts and underwear don’t lolSyrana

    Great article, Darcy! It is wonderful to hear someone be so honest about a subject that people don’t really talk about.

      Thank you, Stacey! I know it was something I felt embarrassed about and wondered if something was wrong with me after my daughter was born….then I slowly learned it was more common than I thought.Syrana

    I hear you. Having babies is rough on the body! My daughter is 15 and it still isn’t the same! I think age also has a lot to do with libido {or lack thereof}. :)
