We were sitting in the fertility clinic room and we were starting to kind of inch forward with the process, and I remember just sitting there and you see all the husbands and the wives, and the husbands with their little brown bags going in and out, you know, coming in and out of room. And I just looked at Bryan like this just doesn't feel right. It just didn’t feel right. I felt like I was going some place, like a cattle call, and I was going to, you know, we were going to conceive our child in this like, clinic, and it just didn’t sit well with me, and when I turned to him and I asked him, "How do you feel about this? Does this feel right?" He said no. I said, "Okay, can we go," and we just got up and we left, and then that’s when we decided, let's try on our own for x amount of time, and then if that doesn’t work, then we’re going to adopt. It just didn’t feel right, the whole conceiving a child there just, the whole structure, you have to have sex on this day and this day and that day, and it starts to take an emotional toll on you, an emotional toll on your marriage, and it’s just not normal, and then other things start to creep in, and it just is not, doesn’t make for a stable environment.
