Happy V-Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to all the Barren Babes out in the world. Tonight my Darling Husband and I will be ordering pizza and putting a java-log in the fireplace. Whether you will be enjoying a four-course meal at a white-glove restaurant, or ordering take-out like us, now is the moment to remember why you are a couple. Take time to remember what attracted you to your partner and how exciting it was when you the two of you started dating.

An infertility diagnosis can sometimes spell disaster for a relationship. We try so hard to get pregnant and have sex scheduled to coincide with peak times around ovulation that we lose sight of the romance. Now is the time to toss aside the baby-making focus and look at your relationship with warmth and romance. Let's bring back that loving feeling and nurture the intimacy that has grown through the infertility struggle. Life's a journey and it's amazing to have someone to share it with, through the laughs and the tears. OMG!! Sorry, I just realized how sugary that sounds. Perhaps I'm just caught up in the spirit of the day.
