This is embarassing... ADULT

I know it's perfectly normal for sex drive to diminish during pregnancy, but I'm really not pleased with myself right now. It's not that I don't want to have sex, but I just never seem to be in the mood when it's a time when my husband is home and we have free time. In the evenings I'm generally exhausted and/or too full from dinner. The other problem is, there are very few positions that work for us right now with my belly being so huge. The best two are me on top and doggy-style. However, when I'm really tired, I just don't have the energy for these positions. On top I have to do all the work, and in doggy-style my legs always get sore/tired from holding myself up.

I know that once the baby is born, our sex life will really take a nosedive (at least for a while) so I really want to enjoy these last few weeks while I still can. Besides the physical pleasure, I really miss the intimacy. We still hug and cuddle a lot and my husband gives me backrubs and foot massages, but it's just not the same.

Does anyone have any suggestions of positions or anything else that might help in these next few weeks?

Spooning or a modified missionary with you lying on your side and him perpendicular to you (standing up or kneeling). A warning, the latter position might make you fall asleep because it's very comfortable. Or it just might be me since I always sleep on my side.

In hindsight, I offer this advice:
Do it. Have sex even if you think you're too tired (you know it's okay once ya start!), go out to eat and to the movies and whatever else you're putting off because you'd rather lay on the couch.
Once the baby comes, tired takes on a whole new meaning and you won't want to do ANYTHING but take care of the baby!
I'd love to go to the movies or out to eat but a)gotta find a sitter and b)don't want to leave her!
Did you do it for love? Did you do it for money? Did you do it for spite? Did you think you had to, honey?

But for me the biggest motivation to having sex in the last few weeks was to get labor started. It was difficult getting into it, and having an orgasm was almost impossible, but I was really trying to get that baby out! My daughter was born 3 days early, and I accredit it to the sex and all of the long walks we did...who knows??!
