  • Well I wouldn't "conceive" a baby for her, but I would be a surrogate for her

  • ive thought about that but then back in your mind its kind of like "that is my child" "i dont like how she's parenting" and it all may eventually become a big mess! unless the conciever and the other person lives miles away and only sees you on holidays and whatnot but the thought is still there no matter what.

  • I'd do it for my sister as long as she had a girl. I wouldn't want her to mutilate a boy.

  • I want to do that for my fiances mom. She can't have anymore and they really want one but then I don't think I could give her the baby after due to the fact I get so attached while I am pregnant.

  • I have thought about it for a good friend who is gay. He really wants a family and I am willing BUT if its my egg, I want my parents to have the right to see the child since it would be their grandchild and he is not sure he is ok with that.

  • Well, I don't know if I could do it mentally. It doesn't matter anyway, because having my own was challenging enough that if I do decide to try again, it would be for our second child.

  • My sister asked me if Id be willing to(many years ago before they were ready to start their family. She had issues with the thought of pregnancy but didnt have issues concieving(then anyway).

    I said yes I would. Nowadays, I would not because my body is done having kids and it wouldnt take another pregnancy well and I realize this.

  • There's no one in my family that I like enough to put myself through that for.
