I wouldn't do it, but I don't think anyone else is "wrong" for doing it. And having a child in general is typically for selfish reasons anyway, IMO. But, having a child through surrogacy just because you don't want to get pregnant for whatever reason doesn't fall into a "selfish" category in my mind.

As much as I hated pregnancy, I also loved it. I hated that I was sick for nine months, but I loved the kicking and hiccups and all that cute stuff. I wouldn't give that up unless I had issues biologically. I don't think it's selfish for those who do choose it though, just not my personal preference. Lol.

What if your mom had been a muti-millionaire who would have lost work carrying you? The movie she was working would have put to much stress on her body? The modeling contact would have dropped her.



Is she still lazy then?

As much as being pregnant sucks, I would want to carry my own baby. There's just this special bond that you feel with your unborn baby and I wouldn't want to miss out on his/her kicks, hiccups, stretches.

Not personally because I want to feel my baby moving. I couldn't imagine not knowing what it was like to feel my daughter moving.

Lazy.. no.
I'd consider that selfish though.

How so? She wants to provide the best for her child and doesn't have the time to take off for pregnancy?

This exactly. My pregnany was hell, but damn it if I don't miss it sooo bad.



I'd only consider a surrogate if I couldn't carry a child and I wanted another. I wouldn't fault anyone for their reasoning to chose a surrogate though.

Then IMO, she shouldn't be having a pregnancy.

Why? Because she works a lot? That kind of weird to say to someone. "Oh hey you can't have bio-kids because you work to much."

Shit, I sure would!

I wouldn't pay for a surrogate, but I wouldn't mind being someone else's surrogate mom.
