After going through an exceptionally tough pregnancy or labor and delivery, many mothers say they'll never do it again. But it seems like Jenni "JWoww" Farley may very well say it and mean it. Judging from her confessions throughout her pregnancy, she's not a fan of the experience at all. Most recently, she told In Touch during an exclusive photo shoot that it's gotten so uncomfortable, she's lost interest in having sex with fiance Roger Mathews.
"If you can keep the spark going, do it. But for me, it's awkward. My body's going through so much that I'm just like, 'Ick!'" she shares. Turns out, there's a medical excuse for opting out of sexytimes with Rog.
Apparently, doctors told the couple they couldn't have sex for 30 days due to Jenni's low-lying placenta. She joked:
Roger asked me how much I paid off my doctor to say that!
Aww. But seriously, the idea that a woman like Jenni may have to issue her husband a sex ban -- doctor-prescribed or not -- is completely understandable. And to be celebrated, really. The fact is that while investigating the best sex positions for your third trimester may be one woman's cup of tea, even the thought of doing it that far along might be really tough for another to stomach.
Pregnant or not, we often feel a lot of pressure to maintain a healthy sex life with our partners, even at times when we're feeling less than well. But during pregnancy especially, no woman should feel pushed out of their physical comfort zone for the sake of keeping their sex life in tact. It's perfectly okay to tell your partner you're not feelin' it, and sex just isn't going to happen for the time being. After all, there are plenty of other ways to feel close physically (kissing, snuggling, massage, etc.) without getting it on.
JWoww may not be having the time of her life as a pregnant lady, but she's definitely doing other women a huge favor by putting this out there. She's certainly not the only one telling her husband "not tonight, honey" -- with good reason -- indefinitely!
