Ella (and everyone) - I'm right there with you on the libido thing. Though I have noticed an increase in my interest (though not doing anything about it! LOL!) since I went down to two (and then one, and now none) pumps a day. So, maybe it does have a lot to do with BFing.

Ruby - I really hope you're able to find something now that you're extending your search. (((hugs)))

Ella - I am the same way with my friends. In fact my good friend had her little boy 10 days after I had Gabby and she is DTD a heck of a lot more than we are...Honestly I think DH and I DTD 1 time a month. One time we DTD 2 times in a week, but that was seriously a fluke and I think I felt bad for him. I don't feel in the mood all that often. and with my friend, I know she doesn't feel in the mood and just does it. So maybe that's the difference?

Hey girls!!! I'm sorry some of you are having libido problems... I'm not going to say I'm on the same boat, but it's not like before the baby either! I do want to have sex, but I'm a little frustrated about it right now. It tends to be quick and unromantic, and although it is "efficient", I miss some of the intimacy we had before. I suppose I should not complain, though. Something I did in the beginning was having sex even if I didn't feel like it (not when I was dead tired, just when I felt "bleh" about it) It surprised me that a few minutes into it, I really started to enjoy myself. I know some women will never do that, but it's just that sometimes, if I had to wait until everything clicked (baby asleep, me not tired, me in the mood, etc.), we would never do it!!!! Jess- I totally get what your family is going through with your grandfather. My nonna (mom's mom), is 91, and is really struggling to cope... She had two nurses at home because my mom and sisters didn't want to put her in a nursing home. But last Wed. she broke a hip!! So today they are going to do surgery, and if she makes it (we have to be realistic it is a grim possibility). We suppose we'll have to put her into a home. My mom is incredibly stressed about it. And I am feeling really guilty, because I rarely go to visit her now... and I feel like the worst person! It's just that it depresses me so much to see her like this. Sometimes I wonder about aging and my own future... it seems so sad that most people now are destined to such horrible depressing ends to their lives.

Mari - I know that's what I have to do with DTD, I have been trying even if I am not the slightless in the mood for it I try to just let go and get into it, because like you said usually after awhile you are actually in the mood for it.

KUP on your Nonna! I hope everything goes well with the surgery. I haven't talked to my mom today, if she didn't sleep well she will probably be busy with Grandpa this morning, so I want to give her time and I will call her later this afternoon if she doesn't call me. I guess I just keep going back to when I was 11 and 12 and had to watch my dads' parents age. They moved into a nursing home and about a year later passed away. We used to go every Sunday to visit them (and to this day I hate sundays I think for that reason). I loved seeing them, just hated seeing them get sicker and sicker. My grandma went from being this amazing person to someone who didn't know which world she was in and couldn't hold her head up anymore and confined to a wheelchair. So I think I just don't want to see him going through this..but I need to be optimistic that it's going to work out.

Anyway = Thanks for listening. on a plus side Gabby slept in her crib the entire night last night! Major breakthrough for us. It took us about an hour at 10:30 to get her back down - usually she just eats and then goes back to sleep. and she wouldn't settle down, but I put her in there and she would fuss for a minute and then she would stop for a minute and fuss for a minute and this continued for a 1/2 hour. but I just let her self soothe herself and she fell asleep until 4am. so major major breakthrough for us on the sleep front. and no motrin was given last night!

Jess and Mari - sorry about your grandparents having a rough time right now. My Dad's mom is also going through a very tough period and we're not sure how long she's going to be around :( She's in her mid-90s and a couple years ago suffered a stroke which made her not able to take care of herself anymore. So, now she's in a nursing home and it sounds like she's deteriorating pretty quickly. I am glad that Evan and I will be seeing her this weekend (though she might not even know who we are). Maybe it will cheer her up a bit.

AFM - our flight leaves in a few hours. I'm nervous, but it is what it is, right? All I can do is just react in the moment if anything goes wrong. I won't be around until next weekend, so I hope everyone has a good week!

Sorry all you ladies are having issues with not being in the mood. I have never had that problem even while breastfeeding/pumping and being on the pill. I was on the pill 10+ years before David and I was told that a lot of women have issues, luckily I don't.

Not much going on here. We are finally all well after being sick after coming home from Florida. Boy, I wish we could have had another week down there. I did not want to go back to work. Looking forward to my next long weekend which is Memorial Day so it isn't too far away.

My DH and I are going out to dinner tonight. We got a $100.00 gift card to St. Elmo's from his boss for Christmas which is the premiere steakhouse in Indianapolis. All the Indy car drivers go there when they are in town for race weekend. So, it will be nice to get out tonight.

Hope everyone has a nice Mother's Day. Not sure what DH has planned for me. I told him he doesn't have to take me out on Mother's Day since we are going out tonight but we'll see.
