Husband is not interested in getting intimate after baby
So I gave birth 6 months ago. And we had intercourse about 5-6 times since. My husband has been so not interested. And I feel like I initiated half the time.
I know he is not cheating. He is a great dad. He works from home. We share house work and he looks after the baby too.
He is just not into it and this happened after giving birth.
It didn’t used to be like this. We did it at least 3 times a week before.
This makes me very self conscious and sad. Like, I’m not wanted or loved anymore. Has anyone experienced this? What could be the reason?
My brother went through the same thing with his wife (ex wife now – they divorced because she had been cheating on my brother since before she was pregnant, during, and after) when she gave birth to my nephew.
He told me that he saw her as a mother to his child, someone to respect, work hard for, and was just so busy working 2 jobs so he could provide. The last thing he thought about was getting physically with her because what he found attractive was her being a mom, not being her (if that makes sense) after the kid turned a year old things got better for them. Not to say that he didn’t find her attractive as herself, but after bearing a child he said that he wanted to give her and his kid the world. That meant working 60+ hour weeks, 3-4 hours of sleep, and taking care of a kid.
Then he found out she cheated and he left her.
