My friend shaves completely and did until she delivered. If you can't or get tired of it, you could always get waxed.
And I would not abstain from sex with your husband for 3 months....not good for marriage. If it is necessary due to medical condition, that is different and there are other things you can do, but I would not stop just because you are in third tri...I have never heard of that.
I don't get this part of your post...my DH and I haven't had sex in almost 5 months because he's freaked out about hurting the baby or feeling her move. Our relationship is fine and it's even better than before with the baby coming. If sex is what's holding a relationship together then something is wrong.
Agree with this 100%
I don't mean that is what is holding the relationship together. I have been with my husband for 16 years, married for 8 (we started dating young) and there have been times when we have had an active sex life and times when it has been non-existent. However, I have been reading more about marriage lately due to some challenges we were having, especially from the man's perspective on intimacy. Suffice to say that for most men, this is an important part of how they connect to their wives, in the same way that for wives, we often connect through talking and other forms of intimacy....not that we don't want or need sex too...it is just different for women than men.
We had sex twice I think in the first 26 1/2 weeks of my pregnancy and for us that was really not a good idea. We drifted apart in other ways as well, even though it was not intentional. Since that time we have made up for it, and our relationship reflects that. He is talking a lot more, I feel much closer to him, we feel and act much more like a team, etc.
So, while I won't say that abstinence in marriage is an across the board no-no, I will say it can often be problematic. Of course there are other sexual ways to connect, and those are fine. I am mainly referring to no sexual intimacy at all...which is where we were and that was not good for us.
