    • As I stated to her in her post I have a sister who is experiencing the same thing, she has been trying to get pregnant for as long as she has been married over 12 years. She has done the artifical insertion where they take his sperm and her egg and so it like that but she had no luck she lost the baby each time the last try she got pregnant and carried the baby for 3 months but then the baby’s heart stopped. I offered to be a sorrogant for her but she declined but later I found by another sister that she was jealous of me for whatever reason. But I was wondering how many of you would offer your time and body to carry another person’s baby?

    • Neicy,

      That is a lovely idea ......also Psalmist have you not thought of adopting. I have several single friends who have adopted and it’s enriched their lives no end

    • Neicy, I burst into tears and couldn't do anything for a little while after reading your post.  I don't think I've ever felt like anyone has really heard my pain before you ladies came along (I'm crying again, sorry).  Again, I'm so grateful for this "village."  

      Vicki, I have considered that and may look into it later on if all else still points another way, but I'm still clinging to hope...

    • Psalmist don't start me to crying because my heart does go out to you and all those who can't get pregnant. I just hope and pray that you overcome it by a miraculous miracle from God. Don't let this beat you down life is so precious so don't consume yourself in the fact that you don't have a child in your life. Your life is not over you still have a long journey to travel and who knows maybe the man God intends to be the father of your child hasn't surfaced yet. Look at life in a different way there is still hope for tomorrow. I'm adding you to my prayer list as well.

    • I have considered this.  My best friend since the seventh grade has known all her life that she would never have children.  For her I would have been a surrogate.  Not now.  There’s no way I’d put my body thru that after 40, but 5-10 years ago I’d have done it in a heart beat if she’d been in a place in her life where she wanted a child.

      I must have missed the Psalmist post, but my heart goes out to you and anyone else who wants and isn’t able to have children.  

      I’ve always thought life was so very unfair.  I who was never that fired up about having children could have them so easily and people who so desperately want them cannot.

    • How timely is this question. Just this morning after church I was talking to a lady who has been trying to get pregnant for years now with no success, to make matters more trying her sister-in-law is, for the second time. The sister-in-law has painful pregnancies because she has screws in her hip. Each lady is more concerned about how the other is feeling so much so that they were apprehensive about sharing.

        I feel kind of bad, because in all honesty I don’t think I could be a surrogate mother. I form attachments easily and I’m scared that I wouldn’t want to give the baby over and I believe that makes me less of a woman than not being a surrogate. Does this make sense?

    • I don’t think that’s horrible either Beachbum. Just realistic.  You know what you could or couldn’t do.  I know there is only one person on earth I could have done it for.

    • Yes 47, it makes great sense, and it is your opinion and you‘re entitled to it free and clear.
