It took us forever...

I'm actually a bit embarrassed about this, but we're all friends here right?

My husband and I just had sex again for the first time a few weeks ago. My daughter is 7 months old. I didn't plan on it being that long, I just kept pushing it back...

I tore slightly during delivery, nothing serious, but I did need 3 stitches. When I went in for my 6 week check up I was told that I still had too much scar tissue and need to wait at least 2 more weeks before getting the OK. If it hurt at that time I was told to go back in and they'd do another procedure to try and fix the scar tissue.

Two more weeks went by and I was too scared to try. I just kept avoiding it because I was so worried it would hurt. Not to mention I hadn't come to terms with my "new" body, was exhausted all the time, and constantly had an infant hanging off my boobs. It was pretty hard to feel sexy!

As time went on I healed and I really tried to get in the mood, but it just wasn't happening. Finally I told myself I had to stop waiting for the perfect moment and just do it. We actually scheduled a night ahead of time so we could make sure we didn't have any excuses! I was nervous and it wasn't the best time we'd ever had, but it helped me get over all of the baggage that was holding me back. Now I'm not scared and I finally feel like we've gotten our relationship back!
