Things had been tough. I had changed jobs to accommodate our bills. She had been on fertility drugs. I changed to boxer shorts and took supplements. For something that should have been an enjoyable experience, it left us both so stressed out.
We even tried to take a vacation, to see if that would help get us out of our funk. We made a trip to a beach about 4 hours away, and spent 3 days just relaxing. Walking on the beach, having dinner in fancy restaurants. Watching movies in our large hotel room. It was very peaceful, but I don't think it was more than just a distraction. Even as we left to come home, I could tell that we had been thinking about everything even more on the vacation, than if we had stayed home. So much for 'getting away'.
