Dear Shakeup Team,
I have been with my husband for 5 years. Married 2 and dated for 3. I’m now pregnant with our first child and we are both very excited. I know he’s going to be a great dad.
So the problem is this. We haven’t really been having sex since we found out I was pregnant. We had already slowed down since our newly wed phase anyway but still. This is beyond the no more honeymoon part. I probably would leave it alone for a while and not say anything but I woke up last night to the sound of him masturbating…in bed…next to me. I didn’t know how to react so I didn’t say anything to him and still haven’t said anything to him. Is he scared to touch me because I’m pregnant? Is this normal for guys not to want to have sex when their woman is pregnant? How should I talk to him about this? I need sex like yesterday cuz these hormones got me feeling some type of way!
