Keeping the love alive

February 8, 2019

You’ve reached the next big step in your relationship. Maybe you’ve knocked out the proposal, the engagement, and the wedding. Or maybe you’ve just knocked out the commitment and called it a day. Either way, you’re finally at the point where you want to start a family.

In this article we will cover:

  • What infertility is and how it can affect your relationship
  • Tips to keep the spark alive
  • Do’s and Don’ts
  • Surviving February, the month of romance

Infertility and You

Starting a family can be one of the most exciting things that two people can decide to do together. The energy is new, the excitement and nervousness in the air. All is good and fun until that pregnancy stick just won’t come back positive.

Tips on keeping the romance alive

Here are some tips and ideas for keeping your romantic relationship alive, as well as help you struggle through one of the hardest battles a couple can face together.

  1. Make Plans

When faced with the art of seduction, the word “plan” doesn’t exactly spark fireworks behind the eyes. However, instead of looking at your time together as a plan, think of it as a date.  Leave notes in lunches, send sexy texts, or find a movie that sparks the romance.

  1. Go outside the box

Here is where you can finally get creative with your romantic endeavors. Go out for fun date nights, try new things, and remember what first attracted you to each other. Use all of your senses to enhance the mood.

  1. Recreate early experiences

“Do you remember that time…”

This is the time to recreate that time. Or, make it even better than the first time. Think about what you liked or what made that time so special and try to recreate it. Don’t copy it moment for moment, but focus on what made it special.

  1. Don’t forget about the rest of the month

It’s easy to hyperfocus on the week that gives you the best chance of having a baby, especially when it comes to almost wanting something that seems out of reach. However, relying on spending time together only that one week takes the fun out of things.  Plan at least 2 date nights a month so that all of your focus isn’t on one period of time.

Do’s and Don’ts

  1. DO remember why you want to start a family together.
  2. DO be open to discussion.  Communicate your feelings to each other, and be active listeners.
  3. DON’T pressure yourselves. Enjoy the extra time together!
  4. DON’T give up.  There are plenty of resources out there to help couples start a family.

Surviving February...the month of ROMANCE

AAAHH...  The holiday season has just ended, and suddenly there are hearts, cupids, and pink and red roses everywhere!  There are plenty of other reasons and occasions to celebrate your relationship.  Birthdays, anniversaries, and relationship “firsts” are just a few opportunities to remember the reasons you fell in love. Romance is much more authentic when you do something special for your partner spontaneously, not because the commercial industry declares one time of the year more romantic than others.
