hey my wife has been pregnant for about 3 months. this is not the problem however.

the problem is
i)she has very little sex drive
ii) when we do have sex he vagina is so tight/sore that I can't do anything without putting her through excrusiating pain.

will her sex drive come back before she has the baby. will he vagina become so it doesnt put her in extreme pain to have sex?

hormones can do interesting things to a person's libido, and pregnancy sure does interesting things to hormones.

when will she regain her sex drive? i can't tell you exactly when, but after she has the baby, her hormones should gradually go back to normal, although the stresses of having a newborn can really cut into that libido.

as for lactation, expect that near delivery time. she'll secrete a clearish fluid first called colostrum, then she'll produce regular milk within a few days of delivery.

anyway, congrats on your baby, and hang in there

Menace,
I cant speak for your wife, but I can tell you from my own personal experience (I am 31 weeks pregnant as of today) that my sex drive returned during the second trimester. I also noticed that sex was a heck of a lot more pleasureful during the second trimester compared to any other period in my life. I've read that this is due to increased blood flow to the genital region in a pregnant woman from pressure of the growing baby.
I never entirely lost my sex drive during pregnancy (at least not yet) though during the "low points" my partner and I invested in KY jelly. It usually does the trick, as far as "tight" is concerned.
