Sex After Baby and working full time

So I’ve recently gone back to work from my maternity leave. I work full time as a manager where I’m often gone 9 hours out of the day. I’m also pumping while I’m at work and In between feeds when I get home from work. Also playing with baby giving her a bath and putting her to bed, which leaves me exhausted by the end of the night. How do you ladies continue to have a healthy sex life with your Significant others while balancing mommy hood and everyday life?

Omg SAME. Like who has the energy 😫 my husband is very understanding of a lot of things but this is not one of them. It’s one of those “it’s not you, it’s me” situations but you just gotta pull together a bit of energy & make it happen tbh.

I go through times when it's all the time and then we get out of the habit because I fall asleep before he comes to bed. It is a rollercoaster and he gets so mad when we don't have sex. I am just always so tired from working full time and doing everything around house and for kids!

Im in the same boat. My son is only a few months old. My partner and i havent been intimate since i was a few months pregnant. Each time i brought it up, he would say that i dont even have enough energy to walk let alone have sex. Now baby is out... he said we have a baby how can we have sex. Now that i think about it... is he avoiding sex all together or hes just very understanding 🤔

Yea same full time , chores, and pumping... but if I don’t have time for it he’ll show his frustration. Or joke about infidelity. Men just don’t understand and not helpful either, if half the load was picked up... maybe I’d have the energy to be in the mood. Just saying.
