After having my baby.. Should i?

I was thinking about after having my baby donating one of my eggs for money. I was wondering what was you guys opinion on that. I would be helping a woman in need and i would be making money to support my baby. I have no job and nether does my boyfriend, So i know things are going to be hard. Should I donate a egg and would you if you were in my position? P.s I can find a job and i don't have much time before my baby is due.

  • wow! I never thought about this. I don't mean for myself, but about having an opinion on this. If you're ok with it, then go for it.

  • I would be a mom for a while before deciding.

    I think when I was younger and not a mom I too would have looked at it that way.
    But having been a mom now for close to 2 decades, seeing what I have seen, I dont want my egg (a PART OF ME) out there not knowing who is raising a part of me. At least when you adopt a child out you choose the family.

  • I thought about it when I was younger. But then I thought about the pros and cons. Yes, there is someone out there dying for a baby and you can give them that blessing. However, my thoughts anyway, is that those eggs will be fertilized and not all of them will be used. I could not in good conscience allow one or more of my potential children to be flushed away.

  • @attap5 I agree but if you don't use your egg by the end of the month, it gets flushed away with your period.
