    We waited the obligatory 6 weeks after my first also. Like a few others mentioned, it was not comfortable. Even if you have never had a need for it in the past or ever dreamed of a need.... lube. It's necessary. Things just change after birth- no easy way to say it! It is also rather hard being in the mood with all your mommy duties, but I believe it's really important to make time for your relationship in this way- it helps your sanity! (and DH's too)

    After #2 and the twins, we waited about 4 weeks. We were both ready and didn't see the need to wait for the official "ok" from my OB/Midwife.

    I know we were quickly approaching the 6 wk mark when we tried. ...It hurt!!! I only had 1 tiny tear (my dr called it a scratch) and I know it was healed, but I was still sore and we stopped before getting very far. It was probably 2-3 more weeks before we tried again, and could actually 'do it'.

    We waited 6mos with our eldest. 5 weeks with our youngest. I lost the will to do "it" after our eldest, but I couldn't wait for our intimate life to return to normal after our baby.
    No matter how long you wait, be sure that you're confidant and comfortable. Good luck!
