Men having babies & Surrogacy

SERIOUSLY???????????? SERIOUSLY???????????????

You must have all seen the story on the news and in the tabloids about the couple that was originally 2 women that got married and one of the women wanted to be or is a man but still kept all her/his female parts.... NOW, at first I didn't think much of it actually...I thought It was kind of weird but whatever - to each his own. BUT I just saw on TV that they are going to do an interview with Barbara Walter on tomorrow night. AND GUESS WHAT????? Their pregnant again!

Now I care... A man (technically) can now have two babies before I can even have one? What is this seriously all about? Then I start to toy with well maybe I should just do, I really don't want to and right now I cant imagine where I could find $10K!

Ya know I also read a really sweet article in the paper at work yesterday...This women at 56 carried her 3 grandchildren for her daughter. Her daughter had a hysterectomy so they froze her eggs and her mom was her surrogate. I think that is soo nice.

My sisters and I all talked and we all decided that if one of us was not able to carry a baby then one of us would - we would do it for each other. I think that is one of the greatest things that we would be able to do for eachother.

Has anyone out there having all this trouble thought that it might be that their body cant take being pregnant? Would you hire a surrogate? Is there anyone who would do it for? Is there anyone you would do it for? Its an interesting thought....


  1. We are using a surrogate, because of infertility and pregnancy being risky for me. Surrogacy became our choice when I decided that it was more important for me to be a mother than it was for me to have a baby. It is great that your sisters offered, we had many people offer, until they realized what was really involved. Now they are just there to support and play with the baby once we get one. Good luck on your journey.

  2. When I read this post I literally said "SHUT UP!!" To the computer! I cant believe this. That (strange) couple had their baby and is now pg again in the time frame that I have been trying. This really irritates me so im just going to say thank you Lord for this day and move on! But hey interesting story. LOL
