  • No, I am not a happy, nice pregnant women. I'm just not..... even *I* didn't like being around me when I was pregnant.

  • I couldn't. I could not carry a baby, even if it wasn't my eggs being used, I get too emotionally attached so easily.

  • I've offered a couple times. But I know it would be hard.

  • I thought about doing it for the money, but realized how sick I was during my second pregnancy and how hard it was on my body and my son, plus how do you stop yourself from being attached to this being inside your body....so, once upon a time I thought "YES", but now I know the answer is "NO".

  • I couldn't do it. I'd be too attached to the baby, even if I was just a surrogate mother.

  • Yes i would as long as it wasnt my own eggs. I dont think i can though. I gave birth prematurely. Hopefully the next one will go smoother and i can look into it. Children are a blessing.

  • I don't think i'd get overly attached to the baby if the mother played a big role in my pregnancy. If i hung out with her lots & she came to my appointments & all that, i think it would be easier. Kind of a reminder that the baby is hers. I have thought about it for a friend of mine who cannot have children & really wants one, but...i'd have to quit drinking my cocktales on the weekend & my one ciggarette i have on Friday & Saturday nights (after my cocktale...haha).

  • No. I couldn't carry a baby and deliver it without being attached. Even if it wasn't my egg
