Would you ever donate your eggs?
just to anyone or to someone you know
like your family member, a gay friend or an ex who is single? (if that makes any since)
how would your DH/DF/SO feel about that?
i saw an old episode of Desperate housewives and Gabby was going to donate her eggs to her friends who were a gay couple. so I just thought about that. LOl

Nope. Because that would be MY baby with whoever would be the sperm donor. Just could not and would not do it. My hubby would also never be a donor for anyone.

I have a friend that has been asking me to be a surrogate using my own eggs. I would love to be able to help her have a baby but I just can't.

I would love to donate eggs or be a surrogate. To be able to give someone such a gift. I love and would love to be pregnant again but can't soo having anymore children, it would be irresponsible. Plus I have a friend who can't get pregnant who I would love to provide for, plus our kids look alike so it would work.. Too bad my body isn't in the best of health.

I would donate eggs if someone I knew ( and liked) asked but I could never be a surrogate, for me I need to got through being PG to really get to know and love a baby

I would donate eggs and be a surrogate. I can't imagine not being able to have my own kids. It would be heartbreaking and I would love to make having a baby possible for someone else. I would have to know them well because I would need to know what kind of parent they would be before doing it.

I think I'd rather be a surrogate than donate eggs. It would only be someone I was really close with.

I would be a surrogate for sure. I would be uncomfortable with donating eggs to someone I know because I would then have to be around a baby that was biologically mine. I would donate eggs anonymously though.

^^This. Biology is just genes and cells. Raising a child is what makes you a parent. If I were still allowed to donate eggs I think I would. Having a baby with a congenital defect means that neither Rodger or I can donate genetic material. There was a time where he even wanted to donate sperm. However, neither of us are comfortable with the new laws involving sperm donation here and so decided against it.

I think I could be a surrogate for someone I am close to. I am not sure about the egg.... but if someone I love was really in need of an egg I would like to think that I could do it. Being a parent is the most amazing thing in the world. I would hate for anyone who really wants a child to have to miss out.
