We all know trying to conceive with medical assistance is quite a relationship stressor. What do you and DH do outside of the bedroom to alleviate some of the stress?

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

we usually have a date night once a week if we can manage where we go out to dinner or just stay home and watch a movie---but we don't have any baby talk. we just try to enjoy each other. its easy to get lost in the ttc journey. we have only been married for a year and a half and it has put a lot of stress on us and our marriage. so we just try to get back to being "us".

Cycles 1-12 all BFN's. Going straight to IVF per RE advice.

--> My hubby and I talk throughout the day. (We both own businesses so we can talk pretty much whenever we want)
--> We cuddle on the couch EVERY night and watch t.v for an hour or so after kids are in bed
--> We do date night once or twice a week. Just depends on the week and work load.
--> We overall just have fun as a happily married couple.

We have such a great relationship! Not always, but have had to work HARD over the past 6yrs at it.
We go on date night every Fri night. We talk, laugh, joke, play, cry, etc together.
COMMUNICATE, most importantly.

I have to lol! Dh and I have been stuggling. I saw my mistake that he picked up the book love dare. I think our issues are too complicated and deeply rooted but hey it's worth a shot right?
Honestly we don't do anything really to ease the stess. Mostly bc we are tight in money and can't afford a sitter. And I just don't do tv. Idk. I'd like to do a weekly date night or movie night. It just never happens as planned.
