Sex is often a casualty of motherhood.

One popular topic on Heather's blog is sex and how it changes when you are a mom. "It took seven months [before I had sex after giving birth]. No one had told me that it was going to take that long after what the baby did to me," Heather says. "Any guy who wants to have unprotected sex? Seven months without it. Just think about that for a minute. Let that number circulate in your head for a little bit."

Karen says the definition of intimacy has changed for her marriage since her child was born. "Intimacy in our house nowadays is my husband and I touching ankles below my daughter's sleeping form between us," she says. "It's really hard to get that loving feeling when you've got a 40-pound kid between you."
