Re: NBR: LMN The Surrogacy Trap

  • I generally love Lifetime movies. I used to watch them with my mom when I was a kid. 

    I haven't seen this one, but I read an article along the same lines a few years back. The couple tried for years and couldn't have a baby, ended up with a donor egg, donor sperm, and a gestational carrier. Then they got divorced halfway through the pregnancy and the gestational carrier didn't want to give the baby to a "broken home". Talk about a cluster.

    I understand why some people would choose to go this route, but I could never choose it for a variety of reasons, the most relevant being that my religious beliefs clash with most forms of ART.

  • Our beliefs do as well. I lost a tube in 2009 and was so scared to lose the other because of that.

  • Lifetime movies do tend to be over dramatic, but I've known some crazy situations that have come up from these sorts of situations.  While I understand the want to have biological children, it always seemed like too much heartache and weird loop holes to me.  And I did research it a fair amount when I was told I'd probably never be able to get pregnant myself.

    I’m a modern man, a man for the millennium. Digital and smoke free. A diversified multi-cultural, post-modern deconstruction that is anatomically and ecologically incorrect. I’ve been up linked and downloaded, I’ve been inputted and outsourced, I know the upside of downsizing, I know the downside of upgrading. I’m a high-tech low-life. A cutting edge, state-of-the-art bi-coastal multi-tasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond! I’m new wave, but I’m old school and my inner child is outward bound. I’m a hot-wired, heat seeking, warm-hearted cool customer, voice activated and bio-degradable. I interface with my database, my database is in cyberspace, so I’m interactive, I’m hyperactive and from time to time I’m radioactive.

  • TV can be a little misleading I am sure. A close friend is 12wks into her 4th surrogacy. She loves every minute and the bond she has with the families. I have another friend in the process of helping a family from israel have a child. The first I mentioned has said she will help families until her ute falls out ;

  • I watched. Crazy LMn!

    Though we have talked about me doing this in the future pending my own pregnancies all go smooth. So we will see! I can't imagine the amount of joy in helping another couple in that way.
