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
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 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 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.
Biologically, of course the babies are "his". But we are raising them, they are OUR children and he will not be a parental figure. I'd love for him to meet them 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.
