Misplaced Mojo

Posted by on February 3, 2012

 This post is part of the Breastfeeding Blog Hop hosted by The Slacker Mom and co-hosted by Happiness Redefined and The Gnome’s Mom.

Today’s topic for the Breastfeeding Blog Hop: Sex and Breastfeeding*

*family & friends should probably just stop reading now!!!  ;)

Six weeks after my son was born my doctor gave me the “all clear” to return to my normal sex life.  What she forgot to tell me was that since I was breastfeeding I might not really feel up to it.  With my hormones still going crazy & taking care of a newborn I was not up for IT that soon!  I was touched-out, plain and simple.

I seriously doubt very many women breastfeeding or not would be up to it that soon.  You just had a BABY!!!!  You are all too aware of exactly how this bundle of joy, poo, spit-up, screaming, crying, up all night baby got here!

Breastfeeding and new babies bring many intimacy issues which kellymom.com has some advice on.

My advice to new moms:

  • if you feel “touched out” give yourself a break
  • relax and see what happens
  • try again in a few weeks if 6 weeks is just too soon
  • take advantage of a sleeping baby and forget the dishes

 

I have no other good advise for you at 7 months we are STILL working out all the kinks.  I have misplaced my mojo and if you find it please tell it to come back!

 

What was your experience after you got the “Go ahead” from your doctor?  When were you able to regain your intimacy after baby?

    Your mojo must be hanging out with mine. (Hopefully our mojos aren’t getting it on somewhere!! Wait–is that weird? Haha.) Seriously. I would love mine back too. I think working on my body would help a lot, though. Can you find me the time to do that too?

      LOL!!! Yep, pregnancy takes it’s toll on your body that’s for sure! Even back at pre-preg weight things still don’t fit “right.”
