  • I know that I like to be pregnant, thought about being a surrogate because I like it so much, and DH draws the line at 5 kids max. So I do think its possible

  • I wouldn't think it would be as much an addiction as just a natural urge to procreate.

  • didn't read the article yet, but just from your question...yes (not me). I have a freind that has four kids b/c she loved being pg. and the first year of life (her words, not mine). After that, she sends them off to daycare all day while she stays home.

  • Yes! Its an honest psychiatric problem. Most of the time women who are afflicted will risk their own well being just to constantly stay pregnant. I think it has something to do with seeking attention, or being unfulfilled in other areas. I know a woman who is about to have her 7th baby, and she has given up 2 of the prior children to foster care, and the others are living with their fathers. She told me when she found out I was pg too that she loves the attention of pregnancy, but doesn't even like to be around kids!
