i am approximately three months pregnant, and i conceived via IVF. the process started in late september, and since then, for me, i have had little to no desire for sex or intimacy of any kind.
i find that i don't want to be touched, kissed, held, or cuddled by my husband. i certainly don't want to have sex with him either, and the thought of "doing it" completely grosses me out.
now, six months ago, i absolutely did not feel this way, so i'm assuming this is because i'm pregnant. i just didn't expect the feelings to be so strong. it's starting to affect him a lot, and he's bringing it up everyday about how much he misses being intimate with me. i obviously can't tell him that i am not physically or sexually attracted to him at the moment, so i just kindly explain that it is normal for women to have very low libido during early pregnancy.
is this normal? has anyone experienced this before? how do i handle/end this before it gets worse, and really starts to affect our relationship on a much deeper level?
sad and confused,
