I'm sure there's more of you out there but only two have had the balls to actually admit it out loud. :-)
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.
Subject: a mini me

not even our partners can give us the unconditional love that a child does .. and the feeeling of giving unconditional love can be sometimes over whelming there whole life will consume you...

BoFH: I'm sorry to hear. Fertility problems can be absolutely devastating.
My sister runs www.fertilitystories.com
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!
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.
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.
Antarchtic base gets condom haul!
Movie ratings that make sense for parents. (and anyone, really)

Good luck and I hope they figure out something that will be helpful. It's got to be stressful and disappointing.
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 fertilitystories.com and is an infertility specialist for yedda.com - 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.

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!
