Put on pelvic rest at 28 weeks FertileMyrtle5 5 kids; Mayberry, IN, United States 368 posts

My husband and I are expecting twin boys due in November. We have 3 children already, a 9 year old girl, 2 year old girl, and 1 year old boy. Being that this is my 4th pregnancy, a twin pregnancy, and I got pregnant when our son was only 6 months old, I was put on pelvic rest at 28 weeks because my cervix started to funnel. I was also put on bed rest but was taken off bed rest after 1 week when it was confirmed that my cervix had went back to a 4. However, my doctor wants us to continue with pelvic rest just to be safe. My husband and I have a very romantic sexual relationship and its so difficult for both of us to not be intimate. Of course, I do other things to please him but its not the same intimacy that we both get from actual sex. I am now 30 weeks and still have a good 8 more weeks of this. I of course want to deliver healthy, full term babies and don't want to jeopardize that. Is there anyone else going through this? I feel like our relationship has completely changed over the last few weeks and I am craving the intimacy of sex with him :(

I'm sure it's tough, just hang in there. You can have lots of sex later on. :)

I was on pelvic rest for my entire pregnancy, lol. It sucks, but it's what you have to do. it's worth it for healthy babies, trust me. I had a preemie before that. In the long term, a few months of no sex really isn't a huge deal. I don't mean to sound like a b***h, but I guess I am. lol. Take it as a time to build up your relationship in other areas. Cuddle. Find a hobby you guys like together. Sometimes a break from sex can be good for a couple, because it lets them reconnect on other levels that they might have been neglecting before.

I've been on pelvic rest since I was 17 weeks because of placenta previa. I'll be 32 weeks tomorrow. I don't mind too much because I have zero sex drive during pregnancy. Poor SO is hating it though.
