Dr. Lisa Masterson: One in three men, husbands, or friends during pregnancy will cheat during pregnancy. Bethenny Frankel: Oh! One in three. Dr. Lisa Masterson: One in three. Bethenny Frankel: And most women would be like girl, I am just kidding. Rene Syler: No, no I agree with you. I agree with you. Dr. Lisa Masterson: Every woman takes a little pulp because you are getting larger, you may have acne, you may have melasma, you may have any and all of that like I do or you may gain too much weight. How do you stay sexy because you're still a couple and you want to be a couple afterwards? Bethenny Frankel: I know, I really, I was kidding. I think you accentuate positives. I really do. I think that a lot of people's legs they still feel good about their, not the thighs, but here I wore leggings the entire time and like long sweaters and actually I wore pajamas all the time. When I was pregnant, I mean during the day like if I don't have to go somewhere, I am in pajamas always as a rule. When I was pregnant, I put on makeup, I put on clothes, I had an outfit. I had high boots on, I tried to like be a person and have an outfit on like a human being like I did and it made a difference for me. Ari Brown: Pregnancy affects woman differently. During my pregnancy I had really big breasts about comparatively to what I am now, okay? And I was so tender, and uncontrollable like I didn't want my husband near me but for some women pregnancy is the best sex they will ever have in their entire life. Dr. Lisa Masterson: Some will actually experience their first orgasm during pregnancy. Ari Brown: Yes, yes, so it really depends and so what I always tell people is enjoy it and whether it's intercourse or some other form of intimacy because there are other ways to be intimate with your partner, enjoy it because you ain't going to get it after you have a baby for a long time and if you have good sex, you have good mental health which is always good for your pregnancy. Dr. Lisa Masterson: Yes and that's exactly why we talk about that so much on the show. Now how do you keep the fire going with the older one? Rene Syler: Wine! No, excuse me. First of all, when I was pregnant, I didn't really want to be sexy because it was huge, A, and there was already enough going on down there that I really wouldn't interested in anything else, how you were, that was like 41.5 weeks, this is huge, and you're still a pretty woman. Bethenny Frankel: You get subconscious and you feel guilty for not wanting to do anything. Rene Syler: No, I don't, no, not me. And I was like no, I just I am not really interested in having sex at this time. It's not that we don't like sex. It's just that we like cable TV more and so - Dr. Lisa Masterson: So what about sex after pregnancy? How do you get that, that dating relationship back? Bethenny Frankel: Well, first of all you really have to be careful about getting the green light. I mean I literally was in the car with my husband, my baby, my baby nurse and my dog, and we stopped at the doctor. I was like because we were going away and it was at six weeks, my husband has a calendar and he knew when the six week day was. And we pulled up, I swear to God, we did a drive by to my gynecologist, I am like, can you just see me? We need the green light. He said, you are insane. So I got the green light but a lot of people within those six weeks cheat because they're worried that their husbands will stray and go by the way, that's a big thing also. Rene Syler: I have been married for 17 years. I can't really remember the last time I had sex. Fact of the matter is that hot sex, that great feeling that you have for your husband when you're newly married or you're just dating or whatever wanes and you've got to figure out another way to get there. Ari Brown: You do need a date night and one of the things when I see parents in the office with their newborns is I tell them you guys need an established date night to get out of the house, get the
