I would look to see if there is a community acupuncture clinic where you live.  I live in an expensive area and the community places charge $15-$30 sliding scale.  It's helpful, natural and very relaxing.  Any way you can find to manage your stress is very helpful during this process.  I like yoga also.  I really like this meditation.  It's not too woo-wooey, and it's very relaxing.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002B2GD6U/ref=docs-os-doi_0 
I read the book Making Babies.  It combines Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments so that might be helpful if you are interested in acupuncture. 

I'm sorry you are feeling hopeless and sad.  I feel that way sometimes too.  But I am trying to keep the faith.  It will happen.

I am not sure exactly what you need but hugs to you. I am going the egg donation route.

I never saw your original post.

Where do you live? Are you going through a clinic there?
