TTC - Trying to Conceive TTC - Trying to Conceive

Ok so I have thought long and hard about this and no saying mean or rude things. If you dont agree you can post but dont be mean plz. Anyway I figured if me and DH can not have a baby due to his seman not getting any better and IVF fails I thought about adopting eggs and sperm from people who look close to what we look like. I can not bare the thought nor can DH of using my eggs and someone elses sperm or using his sperm and someone elses eggs. I figure if we go this route it would be about the same as adoption but I would get to experience pregnancy and labor and have our baby. As far as adoption the birth month would have so much time to say no I change my mind I am keeping the baby and the way I am going to do it no one could take him/her from us. . We are going to try IVF as much as we can before doing something like this but the idea popped in my head last night. Just a thought for now. confused

I think it's a wonderful idea! I can understand why you wouldn't want to use one without the other. & even IF the baby doesn't end up looking too much like either of you I don't think that's a big deal at all. All that would matter was you both got to experience the whole thing together & didn't have to miss out on anything!

If they look nothing like me then they just will not but not much difference than adopting a baby from a home expect the way I'm going I get to experience pregnancy and the baby is mine no mother to step in and say give me my baby back.


Quoting mama-smurf:

I don't think it would work. Its a good idea to find people with same features BUT what if the baby takes features of relatives back back back generations and looks nothing like you?
