Would you be a surrogate?
 
I think this may have been asked already, but would you be a surrogate? If so, are there stipulations?

If not, is there any amount of money that would change your mind?

Given that I've had a MC I would be too scared. It's not about money it's about my health and anxiety.

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.

If I could, I would do it for my sis-in-law who has fertility issues, but only as a "carrier" No egg donation. However, my dr informed me no more babies for me b/c my uterus was so thin.

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.

I love the thought of it and think it is an amazing and wonderful gift...

But I don't know that I could do it. I don't know if any amount of money would change my mind, but if someone I was very close to was struggling and asked, I might consider it.
