Why haven't you been a surrogate?

So many of you reply that you would love to do it when those threads come up.

So what is holding you back? What is keeping you from helping complete someone'se dream?

My husband is not on board. I think he might if it was someone we knew and loved. It likely will never happen.

I would do it too probably, if I could.
I don't meet the criteria. Not healthy enough, too many pregnancy issues of my own.

I'm a high risk pregnancy. I had Ds1 at 26 weeks and went into labor with Ds2 at 29. They stopped it and I was able to hold him in till 36 with partial bedrest. I love being pregnant though and would love to be a surrogate. :/

I don't think I could do it for a stranger. I would get too attached to the baby and I would be so sad to give him/her up. I would absolutely do it if it were for a family member or close friend if they needed me to. It's something I spend a lot of time thinking about though.

I was going to be a surrogate for one of my cousins if she couldnt do it on her own. I'm too fertile for my own good. I almost died with my last and even though I was only 22, my doctor RECOMMENDED I do it, for my own safety.

I would only do it for one person and amazingly she was able to have. 2 beautiful kids one her own despite what drs said. So now my baby factory is closed for me and anyone else

 I don't want to do it until I know I am done having kids.

Also, I am not the required 150lbs or less.
