no.... we are almost certainly not having another child because of my terrible pregnancies. (which is something i am struggling to come to terms with, we have a pretty awesome family with two kids and are fortunate and i need to remind myself of that all the time). Even though the cardiologist always said baby's life and my life weren't at risk, this time i was scared for a while.... and my symptoms (passing out and dizziness) would probably surface earlier and earlier with each pregnancy
I would do it. I use to joke with my mom that I'd be a surrogate for her because she wanted another a child. Although it might be hard to give up the baby at the end of it all, seeing as pregnancy is so amazing, I would do it absolutely. I love my child so dearly, if I had the chance to give that experience to people who could not conceive on their own, yes I would.
Yes I would; dh and I have talked about it and I may do it after we have our 2nd (and final ) baby. I'd only be a gestational surrogate though, not a traditional. I'd love to do it for someone I know, but there isn't anyone in our friends or family needing that at the time.
Gia, that would be such a crazy but neat situation!!
No. I commend anyone who could do that, it would be such a blessing on a barren family...but I couldn't personally carry a baby, give birth, and give it away, even if the eggs/sperm didn't belong to me or my DH. I would still feel a huge loss, having carried the child...it would break my heart. I don't have the constitution for it.
