Since H was about 3 hours old, I have been broody for number 2. At first I put it down to my hormones going mad but 9 months later, I still have that same urge. A now says he is ready to start trying for number 2 and I am taking my folic acid, but we just can't seem to get around to the 'trying' part!!
Despite me still finding my husband extremely attractive, I certainly don't feel as sexy as I used to. My body has had a drastic overhaul during and since my first pregnancy. I have put on a couple of stone (I could have lost at least a stone very happily before getting pregnant), I have a LOT of stretchmarks and nothing quite feels 'right' with my body. All of this means that bring intimate is something that has previously been reserved for high days and holidays, but now the pressure is on to 'get jiggy with it'!
The question is, how after a morning of looking after my son and inevitably being covered in at least one bodily fluid, an afternoon at work being potentially covered in an animal's bodily fluid and coming home to finish the housework hubby has usually not got around to finishing, do I then make myself feel sexy?! How do other people ever manage to conceive number two when it is a juggling act just looking after number one?! If H doesn't wake up again tonight like last night, I'm going to put my 'sexy' head on and let you know how it goes!!
