I dont want to freak you out but DD is 2 years old and I STILL haven't got it back!!
Me too! I am up to number three currently brewing and in fact its amazing I am pregnant at all! Seriously, once we went almost 5 MONTHS or was it 6 without doing it. I am soooooo tired all the time. I breastfed both my girls (3.5 and 19months) both up until I got pregnant again, 14 and 16 months when I stopped.
Its a hard job being a mum, and like you my girls never slept through consistantly until they reached 1, my 19 month old still wakes me up at least twice a night. If its not her its my 3.5yr old! I had 9.5hrs of straight sleep one night last week and that was the first time in probably around 2 years!
I have tried to explain to DH that it is one thing after another, I get emotional, physical and mental demands on me all day and at night I just feel like me time. As he doesnt really spend a lot of time with me when he comes up to me and starts giving me a hug or a kiss its immediately (great - now HE wants sex!) going through my head.
I have tried to explain to him that if he tried to show me some affection without it leading to sex all the time he may be surprised at the results! To me it just feels like yet another person wanting me for my body and not wanting me just for me. Sounds harsh I know, but thats how I feel.
Its not forever, and I suppose I too will get my mojo back, but I am definatley getting my hormones checked out once this baby is older if things havent changed.
Sleep deprivation plays a BIG part, don't underestimate the affect it has.
