Dealing with the whole motherhood, biological clock, fertility situation is absolutely brutal--whether you had 45 minutes or 450 minutes these issues are incredibly difficult. I spent about a year and a half without a therapist both trying to get pregnant (insemination), looking into adoption and also juggling the idea of *not* being a mom. The journey is very painful *but* no matter what happens you will not regret taking the journey. Just confronting having or not having children in and of itself is really important--you don't want to wake up at 60 and wonder what happened. There are alot of books out there on adoption and also on living child-free. Also, I found that my healthcare provider had fertility support groups so that helped. There may also be a child-free support group too. Given that time is so expensive with a therapist I'd cast a wider net for support and information. And best to you on this--I totally feel for you--it's a very painful journey.
