  • I didn't even know you could do that....I dunno what I would want to help someone out who wants a baby and can't for some reason have one. Plus its extra cash...BUT that means that you would biologically have a baby floating around out there somewhere.....I wouldn't but that's just my opinion

  • I wouldn't. You would be constantly wondering if you had a child out there... because biologically.. they would be yours.

  • I have heard of it and I say if you want to then go ahead. You are helping another couple or someone who is just single and longing to be a mother. What a wonderful thing to do.

  • I've thought about it also, but then I got to thinking how much all 4 of my kids look a like and that there would be a child somewhere out in the world that looked like my kids...I just couldn' do it. 

    I didn't know you could get paid for it? Just out of curiosity, how much do you get paid for it?

  • I thought about this too. It all depends on where you live they have different price ranges but i know its within the thousands. The only thing that creeped me out was injecting myself with hormones and how they take the eggs out and the possible risk or infection. I would hate to have an infection down there. I cant imagine not being able to have children, so to help another couple would be rewarding enough for me. Plus the cash is a bonus too.
