I've thought about this ALOT, and its something I might want to do in the future. I've mentioned it to DH, and he's not very Comfortable with it. I understand his view point. His main thing is that another man/women sperm/egg would be inside me. Its kinda really wierd to think about. I think my biggest ConCern is that the people wouldn't be good parents. And how do you deal with it emotionally [not getting attaChed?]

if hubby isnt comfy with the process, then end it now. i mean you need all the support you can get. and Hubby would be number 1! you dont want to break apart a marriage for anything. and with research maybe he can grow to understand the process more...meaning with GS type of surrogate, the BABY would be implanted into your uterus, which really means it is no longer sperm and an egg LOL

attchment, i can not tell you how NOT to get attach to the baby.....most women do in a sense.. what i mean by this is, like me, i got attached to the baby, but not like a mother does, i felt more like the babystter. KWIM?

research is the keyword!

GS is Gestational Surrogate, it is done via IVF with an embryo (usually 2 or 3)

TS is Traditional surrogate, it is done with IUI or home insemination or IVF with your egg and donor/the fathers sperm....

My hubby wasn't on board at 1st. He thought for sure that I'd be too attached to the baby. But having 5 kids of my own and NOT wanting anymore. I convinced him, that by no means to I want to bring ANY baby home...LOL! He was still on the fence, a little, until he talked w/ a couple facing IF (infertility problems) and has supported me since. He's more interested in what's happening to me now, then when I was pg w/ our own child...LOL! Give your hubby some time. Express your feelings and find out exactly why he's against it. It's a huge decision, unchartered territory for most. So it can be scary until you research and find out more about it. I wish you the best .
