Would you consider it for yourself? I'm just curious, since one of the situations where it's often used is in the case of RPL. I have a family member who brought up the idea to me today, and it got me thinking.

My personal opinion is NO. I'd rather adopt or keep trying on our own, surrogacy has all the difficulties of IVF and of adoption, and none of the joys of pregnancy for yourself. Not to mention I can't imagine how it would change family dynamics if it's a family member who is the surrogate.

I think I would, especially if it could be my eggs and DH's sperm. I would have to explicitly trust the person doing it though, and I'm not sure there is anyone in my life I'd trust enough to carry my baby.

I don't think we would. Our problem is said to likely be an unknown genetic issue and the only way I could consider agreeing is if it were my egg and DH's sperm and if that's the case, I'll carry.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

It's definitley an option for us...Just one that I hope we don't have to use.
That is a last resort for us.
