Q: Is it normal to not want sex while I'm pregnant?

A: It's not just you -- this is totally common! During the first trimester, your body is hard at work, which means you may feel exhausted, nauseated, and overwhelmed -- no wonder you're not in the mood. Once you hit your second trimester, however, the nausea lifts and estrogen kicks in, which jump-starts your sex drive. And even if you're not up for intercourse, you can easily stay connected with your spouse by cuddling and kissing. --Julie Taylor
