I was asked if I could surrogate for my best friend and I said no.

I have no health issues, my pregnancy with my daughter was free of any complications.  I  simply hate being pregnant, I did it once and never wanted to do it again. 

I will support my best friend in any adoption plan or alternative route he chooses to take, but renting out my womb is not something I'm ever willing to do, regardless who is asking.

.

I guess according to cm that makes me a horrible person.  Because if I truly loving and not selfish I would do it.

I don't think you are horrible. Your body your choice.

All pregnancies come with risks. Each pregnancy is different as well. I don't believe it's selfish, and I hope your friend is understanding.

He was disappointed, but I think he understood.

Quoting ame85: All pregnancies come with risks. Each pregnancy is different as well. I don't believe it's selfish, and I hope your friend is understanding.

Pregnancy was horrible for me, plus I'd get attached. I couldn't be a surrogate.

I don't think that's horrible. Being a surrogate would be really hard you would have to be all in mentally, emotionally, and physically to be able to do that. I don't think it makes you a horrible person at all better to be honest then to get guilted into something you don't want to do especially something as difficult as that.

 No dear, you're not horrible. That isn't for everyone. There's much more to it, then just renting out your womb. The possible emotional ramifications alone, would set most women off doing it, then there's the whole psychical aspect.

Hugs Mum.
