  • There is a select group (of like 3 people) I would do it for. But all of them have been able to have kids.

  • I would do it if someone was willing to pay all the doctor bills and stuff.

  • I don't think I'd do it. I truly hated pregnancy both times. Maybe egg donation, but carrying a child is not something I'd do again.

  • I can't have kids, but if I could and was only the gestational carrier(their egg and sperm), I would probably do it for a few people, as long as they paid the doctor bills.

  • I might if it was someone I was close to. As PP said they would have to pay all the bills.

  • Yes, I would do it as long as the child was not biologically related to me or hubby. The parents would have to pay all the bills and the inconveniences of pregnancy.

  • I actually want to be a surrogate. I want another pregnancy/birth experience, but I don't want another baby, so it seems like the logical choice (of course with the intended parents paying all costs associated with the pregnancy, as usual in these circumstances). And after having been through my emotional state while pregnant with and just after the birth of my second baby, I'm certain I won't have any problems with that aspect of it, even for a stranger. Before my second pregnancy, there were only two people, both of whom I'm very close to, for whom I would even have considered the possibility, and it wasn't a sure thing for either of them. It's not something everyone can do, which is one of the things that makes it such a great gift for people who are able to give it. :)

  • I don't think I could do it because I wouldn't want to give the baby to them. I had such a hard time with having my dd though, I dont' think I could do it.

  • yes i would but my hubby says no that he would leave if i ever did that carry someone else's baby. he is a very selfish many anyway. his sister and her husband asked me to for them once for them and he showed his a$$ so it was never mentioned again.
