Question, ladies

February 4, 2008

Hello all! I have a question for all of you. I’m the mother of two wonderful children (4&3), and I was a gestational surrogate for twins who are almost nine monthes old. I’ve been thinking about being a surrogate again – for the same couple – and was wondering what you think. The pregnancy with the twins was not bad, but it was harder then when I was pregnant with my kiddos. If I could just have some advice that would be great. Thanks!!

    I’m a surrogate mother too! Every pregnancy is different so there’s no way of telling what your next pregnancy could be like. In some ways this pregnancy has been so much easier than my last one and it some ways it’s been so much harder. I think it’s all worth it in the end though because being a surrogate is an amazing thing.

    I think what you’re doing is the most beautiful and the kindest thing anyone could do for someone.

    As long as your body can handle it and you are happy to do it again then it’s an absolutely wonderful idea! Just be sure you are nice and healthy…and prepared first!

    Good luck!!

    I think it’s a wonderful gift you have given this couple. If you feel like you are up to again I say go for it. Good luck!

    I think what you have done and are considering doing is a wonderful, beautiful thing. I would be proud to get more stretchmarks and lines and sags if I could do the same. Bless you!

    I think that is amazing what you have done for that couple. If you WANT to do it again for them you should. But I wouldnt feel obligated to just because you have said once already. They were blessed with two beautiful babies. And your body has only had 9 months to recover. But if you truely want to go for it!

    Thank have all. I just found out that they can’t go forward with the process again. My husband and I have decided to do it again for another couple. We just think what we were blessed with we want another couple to have that blessing as well. Thanks again for your advice and thoughts :o)

    Wow, words aren’t enough to describe how wonderful you are to do this for not just one desperate couple, but two!!! If you enjoyed the process, by all means do it again. You are literally a beacon of hope for others.
