Snuggle after Sex
This is the most important part of the date night that you planned. This is where you just savor the love and feel loved. It does not only make you feel good but it also deepens the relationship.
Valentine’s day only comes once a year so you want to make it special. Take a break from your hectic schedule and from the stress of infertility. Take this time to focus on the love you have for each other and to reflect on the things that would deepen your relationship.
I know that when dealing with infertility, having sex is for the sole purpose of making a baby. But with special days like Valentine’s day, make it day free from baby-making purpose to a day of just making love. You got to keep the fire burning.
