i'd love to be pregnant again just cause i love the feeling of it but i don't want any more kids of my own. i think if i knew someone who wanted a baby and couldn't have any i would want to be a surragate mother for them if they asked. would anyone else do that.

Before I got pregnant I had always wanted to be a surrogate. Now that I am pregnant I know that I can't do it. I have had too many complications with this pregnancy and have been advised by both of my doctors to never get pregnant again.

I have to be honest and say that I don't know for sure. I would love too, I think a baby is something precious. But I don't know if I could carry a baby that long give it away. I KNOW the baby wouldn't be mine though. It is tough, before doing it, it would have to be something that I thought a lot about and even did counseling to make sure I could do it. If someone I loved asked me, I would definitely think about it. My brother and his wife don't have kids yet and they aren't sure why they can't. If it came down to it, I would help them.

Even though it's something i really want to do if i ever do do it, i would definatley be smart about it and go for councelling. huge descisions like this really need a lot of time and you need to look at it from every point.

That is a huge commitment and responsibility. I think I would only do it for a family member or a very close friend. I think it would be so hard to give the baby up afterward even though it wasn't really yours in the first place.

I still don't have any baby...but frankly, I don't want to be a surrogate mother because I want to concieve a child with the one, whom I really love...and besides my sonscience would kill me if I gave away my child...
