Would you rather be a surrogate or donate an egg?

Carry a baby to term that is not yours biologically or give an egg away and have a child of yours biologically possibly grow up somewhere unknown to you?

  • That is a tough one. I have never thought about donating eggs before. I know I have answered questions on here before about surrogacy and I have said I don't think I could do it. Even if the child wasn't mine biologically, after I had carried it for 9 months I think giving birth to it and handing it over would be so hard.
    And donating eggs in another thing that I think would bother me, knowing that a child that was biologically mine was out there and I didn't know where they were or what kind of life they were having would get to me.
    I would however be a surrogate for someone I was close to if they really wanted children and was unable to carry them. My sister-in-law was a surrogate for her sister and I thought it was the greatest thing. I would be willing to do something like that I think

  • Donate...if I'm not going to raise it then I don't want to get mentally attached to it.

    That being said...I wouldn't do either because I know it would emotionally tear me up inside.

  • donate. i'm sorry but i would not go through pregnancy for anyone but me. i completely admire the selfless people willing to do that but i couldn't...

  • Which pays more? I could do either. Doesn't matter to me. I tend not to bond with my babies before birth, so I wouldn't see any reason why I would have issues giving a child to their real parents. And I've wanted to donate/sell my eggs a few times, but always end up getting pregnant instead... So really, either way, I wouldn't have issue.

  • I would love to be a surrogate. I dont get attached easily and would love to allow someone to become a parent.

  • I would rather be a surrogate, but not just to anyone. There are two people in the world that I would gladly surrogate for if asked.

    I couldn't have a child of mine being raised by someone else, somewhere else - possibly unknown to me.
