Whatever Got Tori Spelling Back Into Sex Four Weeks Postpartum Should Be Bottled And Sold

By  | 

tori and deanTori Spelling is pregnant again, which wouldn’t be all that newsworthy had she not given birth to baby girl Hattie a mere five months ago. If all goes well, Hattie and her little sibling-to-be will be 10 months apart! I myself am just 14 months younger than my brother – like Spelling, my mom didn’t know you could get pregs while breastfeeding – and my sisters-in-law are only 13 months apart. So having kids close in age isn’t all that uncommon but – and this is a big but – who the hell wants to be having sex four weeks after pushing a human being out of your vagina?!

Maybe it was just me but after I gave birth to my first, sex was the last thing on my mind. I was sleeping in 45-minute increments (if you want to call it sleep – more like lying in bed with one eye open), which perhaps explains why I was more interested in sleep than sex. (Sadly, many moms out there would still choose sleep – or Facebook – over sex.) But beyond the exhaustion and leaky boobs and lack of hormones was the whole “healing” aspect of it all (as in, I needed to time to heal – physically). And so that’s the part that makes my jaw drop when I think of Donna Martin Tori and Dean. These two have three little kids at home – including a newborn – and yet they’re gettin’ it on. All I can say is power to them!

I was speaking with a friend who recently gave birth to her second child. After a really crappy year of trying – and a complicated pregnancy on top of that – she got her mojo back. Big time. This is a woman who’s totally sleep-deprived and bickering with her husband like there’s no tomorrow, yet all she wants to do is have sex with him. She’s dying! But she’s waiting ’til the six-week mark because, well, things aren’t exactly in working order down there (at least not yet). She was even more astounded by Spelling’s timing than I am!

Whatever it is that’s causing Spelling to jump back into the saddle four weeks after giving birth should be bottled and sold. She’d make millions (oh, wait…).

    My OB-GYN told me that the “6 week rule” is actually just a general guideline to make sure the woman has had sufficient time to recover and that if the mom is feeling up to intimacy sooner, there is no medical reason to wait. It was my experience that bouncing back after delivery got easier with each subsequent child. With #1, it was about 4 months. With #2, it was about 6 weeks. With #3, it was 10 days (which is what drove the question to my dr).

    My guess is that Speling has a battalion of nannies, cooks, drivers, maids, nurses, and secretaries. I am sure she has PLENTY of time and help that allow her to shower, dress, work out, and sleep. If the rest of us had that, you better believe more of us would be ready for sex sooner.

    What kills me is that there are STILL women out there who think they can’t get preg while breastfeeding! GAH!

    I’m fairly certain that she has had c-sections for all three births. So as you might know that basically leaves your down unders largely intact. Still, at 4 weeks post partum, I’m betting she they had sex 1 or 2 times and it happened. I highly doubt they’re getting it on very often, even if she has a slew of nannies. I know c-sections are not easy to recover from but there’s a different type of feeling with a C as it pertains to sex, than having a vaginal birth. At least for me, it was; I had a C first time and VBAC second time.

    My next door neighbor had children 9 months and 10 days apart back in the day when women stayed in the hospital for a week.
