There is always feelings of blame and guilt. And if not careful, a couple might take such things out on one another. This might affect communication and even their sexual relationship and before long, the relationship gets to a bad place.
But you need not give up. If you had a miscarriage, you need to give yourselves a break first. It is important to mourn during such tough times. Don’t keep it bottled inside. Take time off. Refresh and recharge. Rekindle your relationship as a couple. Get to that place where you are ready to try again. Below are a few tips.
How to handle hard times getting pregnant
1. Get out of town for a weekend
A weekend getaway might not wipe away the fact that you are having problems. However, this can take your mind off for somedays and give you strength to face the days ahead of you. As a couple, it will also give you time to focus on one another without the pressures of trying to get a baby. Enjoy each other.
2. Plan date nights
Make a conscious effort to go on dates. Set one rule: No baby talk for that night. Go for dinner, go dancing the night away. Just be silly together and finish the night off watching the stars or the sun rise.
3. Get a hobby that takes your mind off the tough times.
There are lots of things you can do that can ease your mind even if it’s just for a few hours a day. Take a painting class or dance class together. Look for things that interest you and do those things together
4. Laugh together
Laughter is the best medicine. Go watch a funny movie. Tune into Netflix over the weekend, put down a mattress and watch a marathon of comedy series and movies. Or go to a comedy club. Just laugh!
