hi

i have always wanted to be a gestational surrogate (i think thats what its called, someone elses embryo). I saw my stepmother go through life trying and trying to get pregnant. she was very desperate and eventually had a hysterectomy and never had any babies of her own.

I would do anything to give another women the feeling of having their own child to care for and love but my dh is totally and completely against it.

how did your husband feel about you doing this?
how did he feel about it when you decided you wanted to do it?

What reasons did he give as to why he is against it?


My husband is supportive, he is just worried that it will be really hard on me emotionally after the birth and that I might not be able to keep from getting attached.

I just explained that yes, it will be hard (especially with all those stinkin' hormones!) and I will become attached to the baby but that my desire to help complete their family would far outweigh the attachment I'd have to the baby.

My husband at the time, totally supported it. He was there every step of the process. At first he thought the child(ren) would be biologically mine and I explained to him the types of surrogacy. I choose not to go the route where the child(ren) would be biologically mine. When we found out it was twins he was there holding my hair while I was barfing and running to the 24hr walmart at 3am for my munchies LOL
