The post about sex.. or rather, the lack thereof

01/May/2005

Alright. This is MY blog.  And I’m gonna talk about sex. MmmmK?

Hi

3 guests here now.

  1. Dude.  Your blog is loading as slowly as my sex life.  Sadly, I have the docs ok to avoid sex until Thursday.  After Thursday? I have to start making shit up.  The truth is that I think sex is great, but not at any point where I could be sleeping.  Or when children might scream.  So yeah.  That pretty much covers it.

    And honestly?  With a 13 month old and a 6 week old?  We obviously ENJOY sex.  But the thought of another child at this point makes me think a chastity belt is a good investment.

  2. OMG I would KILL for sex right now. Hell, I momentarily fantasized about the seedy looking dude at the check-in counter at the hotel I stayed in last night. *sigh* I was just gonna type up an OMG-I-Need-Sex entry but then got distracted by all the visions in my head…

  3. Girl, are you on Anti depressant? Cause when I was on it after Gavin was born John was getting nothing. We would schedule in sex. We had sex every day until I hit like my 7 month of pregnancy. After that he was lucky to get it once a week.
    Now that I am off, we are back on track. Although sometimes i want to throw up because I feel so fat and so unattractive. But John is a kick ass husband and still says I look great (yeah right!).
    And Damn Srash you are a horn dog! LOL! I love it. Reminds me of myself a year or so ago.

  4. Rbelle.. HA HA HA HA.. Loading as slow as my sexlife. I know. Slow here, too (on all accounts) Hmph.

    Sarah.. NO KIDDING?! After two?! Chick.. I need some mojo.

    Rachael.. YES I AM. I didn’t even THINK of that!! (Angels sing) Perhaps I’ll ask my doc.

    Michaela.. Yea.. At least we’re not alone, hu?

  5. Part of it is probably just Mother Nature’s way of keeping you from having babies too close in age.  Although a lack of sleep can’t help, either.  And who wants to do anything when you know the baby could start crying!  Lots of factors, but it does get better.  Not that it will EVER be like it was way back when, but some better!  Okay, that penny in a jar story made me laugh!  It makes me wonder, toO!

  6. Umm…yeah. Right there with you… though I have noticed a slight “desire” improvement lately, (usually during my off-week of the pill) I’m still tired as all get-out by the time hubby gets home from work… then it’s dinner, kid to bed and then I practically pass out.  It’s soooo bad… we’re talking twice a month or so lately… because I refuse to just do it when I’m not into it. I’m with RBelle, sex is great and all, but not when I could be sleeping. LOL! I’m not starting my new pack of pills today, so I’m hoping that will help a little…. :\

  7. Don’t even get me started. The whole nursing thing has put the KIBOSH on my sexual motives and I suspect it has all to do with my body begging me not get pregnant anytime soon. “What? You want me to run the boobs and the uterus? At the same time?Fagetabout   it!” And like the others, I need my rest. Emma’s not been sleeping well lately and I’m more concerned with sleep than anything else right now. Someday I hope to reconnect with my libido, just not anytime soon. Although, I will admit, the new ky warming gel is kinda BADASS. smile

  8. Wish I had your pre-baby libido!  I just finished breastfeeding about a month and a 1/2 ago, (made it 11 months-wahoo) and finally now feel that I have my body back.  It helps a bit with the whole sex interest level.  I also am not on the pill, which I really think affected things for me… kiss

  9. I have heard I have to wait til I turn 30 to get the libido back. I have 5 years. Seriously..sex? whats that? last month. once people. how sad is that? poor husband. this is my 2nd week off the pill, and I am hoping that it helps. I am also getting Prolief by Arbonne. Heard its awesome for regulating hormones, and its all natural..so I am hoping I can find that wild sex wanting girl, and I can stop having a period for 20 days. because, that would be nice too.

  10. As a single, kid-less female who is getting married 12 days from today, I can honestly say that I can’t relate AT ALL!  In fact, this post scares me to death!  I have tried desperately to control myself and my sex drive until I was married (and I’m failing miserably I might add) so I don’t even want to think about NOT having sex.  I’m just getting started!  I’ll have to re-read this post in a few years when I’m going through the same thing…heaven forbid!  As for right now, I guess I’ll just enjoy myself! 
    I’ve heard of the penny in a jar idea, and I think we’re going to give it a shot.  In a few years when the jar is still full and we’re not making a dent at all in emptying it, I will understand why!

  11. Personally, I’m at that lovely point in pregnancy where I’m rarin’ to go until Hubby comes home and does something stupid like, oh, accidentally turn off the ceiling fan.  Libido goes out the door.  Oh sure, I forgive him, but by then it’s late and I’ve started my nightly swelling ritual and the baby is kicking away at my colon and, well, let’s just say sex is the furthest thing from my mind.

  12. Oh yeah… relating, Mrs. F! Seems like built-in BC..,.

  13. I remember those days, I didn’t think my sex drive would ever return.  But, luckily, it did, 5 years AFTER the birth of my youngest child.  Now, I’m the one nagging hubby for it!  You read my blog today, you know!  tongue wink

  14. We had a great sex life for the first few months and then it went out he window one day. Like MAYBE once a month if that. Good god - the fact that he stuck around when he wasn’t getting any then is a miracle! Ha. But It hasn’t been around for - oh say 8 years. 8 YEARS PEOPLE! But it is defintely COMIN BACK. So maybe the trick is to have 3 kids??? Hell I don’t know but it seems to work!

  15. ROFL.. Y’all! I have to tell you that just now my MOM (Oma) decided that she’d like to read my site.

    Um.. good timing.. hear about how we’re not getting any. Guess that’s better than hearing about how much we are, right? Gah.  sick

    By Mrs. Flinger on 2005 05 02

  16. No worries, y’all!! I told her no. I said not now (or any time soon.. like ever)

    You can keep letting loose. It’s ok. (sighs of relief are heard around the blogworld) wink

  17. This post is awesome.  And ERIN!!!??  Not taking the pill?

    KB warming gel.  I should try that.  I have my 6 week check up Wed..  I love that I can post way TMI on YOUR blog!

    By RB on 2005 05 02

  18. Too funny about your Mom wanting to start reading your site!  red face  <——- Is this Mrs. Flinger?!

    By Holly on 2005 05 02

  19. Heh.. Nah.. I wouldn’t mind too much. I mean, really, I wouldn’t ASK her about the KY warming jelly (and I seriously might have to get that!) but she’s pretty cool. Mostly I’d rather she not read so my readers can keep giving TMI (Like R.belle there)

    Also, I’m glad to hear it comes back. I thought women got turned on later in life, not earlier. I’m just waiting (unlike some people **ahem Sarah and Seuss** I’m not randy prego or post partum. Sucks to be Mr. Flinger.  ohh

    By Mrs. Flinger on 2005 05 02

  20. hahaha I’ve never been called randy! I love my mom but I don’t even let her know I blog period.
