Soooo this is embarrassing to talk about, but I hate having sex now that I'm pregnant. It hurts! Everyone told me it would be amazing and I'd love it while pregnant ... not so much. My husband is hugely disappointed since he heard the same stories I did, so now I have to deal with his disappointment too (ugh). Anyone else have this problem? What did you do?

I'm so sorry that the two of you have been let down. Each woman is different and will have their very own experience when it comes to all things about pregnancy.
I recall two extremes when I was pregnant. One pregnancy my husband would have sworn I had been replaced by a sexy beast. Another pregnancy I didn't want to be touched at all, not even on the shoulder
When it comes to sex, communication can work wonders. Maybe you can talk to your doctor and explain what is going on and make sure there isn't anything to be concerned about. After that, take a different approach to sex, softer, more gentle etc.

I didnt have this problem.. I have a high drive normally and have yet to loose it at all (even through 11 months of nursing) and pregnancy only made my drive higher.
You could try different positions, more lubrication, and lots of foreplay.. It seems to be silly common knowledge, but sometimes we forget there were positions that hurt me, from what i remember, but I just let DH know and we would change it up and i'd be fine.
I had sex right at 41 weeks as well.. lol It broke my water so definitely i agree with emmy's mom on communication and patience!
