Just added 'Mad Men' to the list of television shows with a Barren Babe. The character Pete's wife appears to be having problems conceiving. During the season premiere there was a touching scene where she lamented that everyone was getting pregnant but herself. She likened it to a 'club' that you joined when you became pregnant and she felt left out. I can relate to that. It will be interesting to see how the writers will handle this situation and its affect on their marriage, as back in the early 1960s options were limited to fertility-challenged women/couples.
