My sister has a thyroid problem, surrogacy is a long way off, they're still trying and have plenty of other options before then. But I know that if they do decide to go that route, they would probably ask me first. I would want to be able to do that for her...but I don't know if I could handle it emotionally. 

So, what are your opinions? Feel free to ask me questions.

My sister didn't have any problems having kids and she's done having kids now.  But if she wasn't able to then yes I would have done it for her.

I would do it for someone that I was close to, but only with their own or a donor egg.

I would donate eggs, but not carry the baby. I'm sorry, but I would become too attached and I KNOW it would cause issues.

As long as its not my egg or sperm...absolutely

I'm actually thinking of doing that after I'm done having my own lil nuggets.
I adore being pregnant but I know that we can only have so many children (we can't afford to be duggars) and I have really easy pregnancies with no complications...if i can give a couple the opportunity to have a child and the joy that comes with it...I would be Honored :)

I wouldn't for someone I know and I wouldn't allow my eggs or hubs sperm to be involved. I have given serious consideration to being a surrogate for a gay couple though.

No. If I'm carrying a baby, I'm keeping it. I have 3 sisters. And 3 best friends. I would support them all in any way I could, but I'm not making kids for them.
