    You know they are only saying these words because they care. Still it’s hard to control the smack upside the head reflex when they talk like this. Some friends of ours still don’t understand why it couldn’t happen naturally for us. I finally just said, “I have a better chance of winning the lottery 3 times in one year than I do getting a woman pregnant.”

But I’m too much of a wuss 😉 thanks for sharing with us…we’re here for you!
