Pregnancy and Sex...Help!!!

I am now 29 weeks pregnant, this has been a hard pregnancy I have had extreme morning sickness for about the first 5 1/2 months. I still have it but not as often, so the morning sickness and the mood swings has really affected my relationship with my boyfriend. I want to be there for him but its hard to be there when I am dealing with a hard pregnancy. He says he can tell I am falling out of love with him which is not true at all. I cry all the time BC I feel that he is going to get fed up and leave.

Our sex life was great before I got pregnant we did it 6 out of 7 days a week. But ever since about week 5 my sex drive has plummeted dramatically to the point where sex is a turn off for me. One because It starts to hurt half way through to the point where I can't finish. I feel horrible BC I know he has his needs but I just don't want to do it. I do it now to satisfy his need. Now don't get me wrong I do enjoy it when I can do it. Now he wants oral sex and I told him from day 1 that I don't do it I had a bad experience with that and it makes me feel uncomfortable when I do it.

I'm not an expert, but I will say that your bf needs to be more supportive. I understand that things are changing for him now, but you are the one carrying the baby and your body is changing. YOUR health is what is important.

Your libido will come back. You don't have too much longer :)
