I'm not sure what's going on with me. This is my 4th pregnancy. I am now 12 weeks along. Almost into the second trimester. We didn't know I was pregnant until I was 9 and 1/2 weeks. Each and every time I am pregnant even before I know, my husband becomes extremely sexually attracted to me (more then normal). But not only am I staying very, very wet, I am also very easily turned on. Obviously my breasts are very sensitive already but it he walks by me and barely brushes against my chest I get so turned on. It's like I'm a teenager again!! With 3 kids it is hard to find time for sex but lately it's like sex is our #2 priority. (Kids #1) I enjoy this. But also I have multiple orgasms now and I'm talking 4-6 within 20 minutes of sex. I feel almost a euphoric feeling afterwards. Is anyone else experiencing this?

This is not an uncommon issue. Many women experience an increased libido late in the first trimester and in the second. Along with this increased libido comes increased vaginal lubrication and a hypersensitive clitoris due to extra genital blood flow. So, enjoy this time and stay relaxed considering this as a natural phenomenon.
