Thanks for the ideas, everybody. One thing I decided to do was stock up on a bunch of movies that I think are amenable to both of us (2nd-hand VCR tapes at $1 each), so that when we do have a "date" night, we don't have to start at square one, "Who should go rent a movie and which one?" but we've got some standby's ready.

NechesInvst had an interesting point: You two need to switch off on who decides what to do. That sounds obvious, but I think it's an important point. Because one thing I said to DH in tears the other night (yes, hormonal preggo woman here) is that to me the important thing is not just for us to spend time together, but for DH to WANT to spend time together. Previously, DH had insisted that if I was the one who wanted time together, I should make the suggestions & schedule them. But alternating is the perfect solution there.
