Today I met a second person who quietly admitted to me that if they could do it over again they wouldn't have kids.
I'm sure there's more of you out there but only two have had the balls to actually admit it out loud. :-)

hehehe  There are moments that you long for the "way it was"......but I wouldn't trade the little monster.  They are exhausting....but a lot of fun too.  He's a never-ending source of aggravation and amusement.  Sometimes at the same time.  If I had to work right now I might have a different opinion.  Maybe Spell is more fatigued than I am since he has to work full-time....but he's giving off the "let's have another" vibe.

While I find myself missing the good-old-days, I wouldn't actually trade my son for anything either.

And a piece of advice. Don't ever, ever, say to your wife in the middle of the night "It's your turn. I wanted a dog." That was ugly.

BoFH: I'm sorry to hear. Fertility problems can be absolutely devastating.

My sister runs

and she answers questions when you email her. She also has a blog which links to a lot of good resources.


Best of luck to you and your wife!

Me and Mrs. D have 3 kids.... Sure they can be challenging, but they really are amazing. You learn so much about yourself when having a child. Maybe that's what your friends didn't like Ford. They saw themselves, and they didn't like what they saw.

My father told me that you're not an adult until you have a child, and you're not a parent until you have two.... How right he was.

Parenthood is not necessarily for everyone. I have a lot of respect for people who realize that it's not their thing and remain childless instead of doing the wrong thing for the wrong reason.

Not me, though ... I love my wife and kids :)

I believe I lack the patience for children.

I like to maintain focus when I do almost anything.  You can't do that and work with children; some measure of your attention has to be kept upon them at all times.

I get very frustrated when I can't maintain a focus on what I'm doing.

Here's something to think about before you go on your next date:

Tests came back good.  My wife has one tube that may have a blockage.  It will take sugery to verify and to make sure that the lining of the uterus is ok.

Good luck and I hope they figure out something that will be helpful. It's got to be stressful and disappointing.

Sounds like you're both going through a lot, but it does sound like there is hope that she can conceive and carry.  That would be great!

Best of luck. If you want some advice that I've put together while helping friends and family with infertility, let me know and I'll email you.

It's not the usual "relax and everything will work out" stuff. 

Some people, however, don't want any advice, so if you don't, then I'll keep it to myself.

The one thing I will say is this though: your doctor probably isn't keeping up with 100% of the research at all times. Google regularly, and if you have additional questions, my sister has a site at and is an infertility specialist for - you can post any question there (at either site) anonymously (you have to register, but only your nickname shows up) and she (or someone equally knowledgable) will answer you.

being 100% up to date on all the research would be impossible, but the Dr. is part of the the medical research university that the wife and I work for, so he has access to a lot of "cutting" edge material. :)

There is hope, my wifes obgyn put her on meds a few months back that was suposed to help w/ her cycles, and instead messed them up.  So we're off the meds and waiting for her cycle to return to normal before moving forward with any other treatment...  But of course we perfer natural function to work in our favor. :)
