Right now me and my pregnant SO are living together.
I have 2 main problems that I feel might change when the baby is born in 4 months.
- Sex of course. Right now she's taking a bunch of vitamins / meds and it's messing with her sex drive. She doesn't show any passion or desire for me and it sucks. One time we were making out and I went down to finger her and she was dry. We were having sex often before she was pregnant and at times her sex drive was higher than mine. Will her sex drive come back after the baby is born?
- She's overwhelmingly clingy and needy. She wants to be around me at all times. She'll follow me around the house. This morning I decided to go to work early. 2 hours early. I am heading out of town for the weekend so I had stuff I had to pack into the car. Right now we are sleeping in separate rooms in separate beds because both beds are full size and 1 full size bed isn't big enough for both of us. (King size bed arriving this weekend) Anyways she notices that I get up early, goes to lay down on my bed, and watches me come in and out of the room while I'm packing stuff. I'd come back into the room, she'd put her phone down, and then watches me move about the room. It was more creepy than cute.
It's frustrating having her want to be around me this much and keeping it all non-sexual. I still find her attractive so having her trying to cuddle me and smother me is like smelling a juicy hamburger and not being able to eat it.
So my questions, does the sex drive come back after baby is born?
and does the neediness / clinginess also go away when the baby is born due to her needing to put all her attention and time on the baby?
This is my first kid so I'm completely clueless. Please share your experiences.
