Feel like you’ll never want sex again? This Mother’s Day, hear from a mom who’s been there.
Once upon a time, not so long ago, I was standing exactly where you are. In milk stained pajamas, with nipple cream in my cleavage, cursing the OB who had just “cleared me for intercourse.”
I couldn’t imagine my lactating breasts as anything but a food source. Meaning hands off. Don’t even think about it. These are not your playthings.
And with all the crying and holding and rocking and cleaning and feeding and soothing and spit up and pee, the last thing I wanted was to be touched. At the end of a long night, when my husband and I would finally slide between the sheets I would look into his lustful eyes and pray for my baby to start screaming, which usually she did. Thank you.
And it worried me because I thought, what if I never want to have sex again? What if I never want to be touched again? Because I’ll be honest, it took a long time before I did.
And then one night I went to bed, had a sex dream, and woke up ready for a sex reality.
So you know maybe not next week, or next month, or even next year, but mark my words someday your drive will come.
And my friend so will you. And then we can talk about baby number two.
