Pelvic rest... how does DH handle it?

Sorry, I know this post is asking for too much information. How to I get DH to accept pelvic rest? With my cramping and spotting, I'm on pelvic restriction = no sex. Has anyone been on pelvic rest? The nurse said "No sexual activity or sexual intercourse." So does that mean just nothing that penetrates, or does that also mean no orgasm? I think my husband is possibly more concerned about that than he is about my miscarriage worries! Stupid priorities of men, lol. Anyone been there/done that?

My guess is no O for you. I would think anything below the belt is off limits until you've been given the green light by your doctor.

So you went to the doctor? What did they say? I was concerned for you today.

It mean nothing, not even the big O!

When my DH started to complain, I told him if he was that worried, to "take matters into his own hands!" LOL! Fortunately, he was pretty understanding overall! Good thing too, as I spent most of my second pregnancy on full pelvic rest or bed rest.

Can't believe I'm posting this - but how about snuggling up and you 'assisting' him. That way he gets intimacy and orgasam and you get intimacy and no orgasam?
