I know you heard from a neighbor of mine or a friend of a friend that I am a surrogate. I really do appreciate your curiosity and welcome questions to a certain degree.
But friend after awhile it almost seems like I am getting the 3rd degree.
I would like to set the record straight and just do this once, I know I will have to do this 1000 more times during this pregnancy, and more so after and possibly for the rest of my life.
I know it is my job to educate you, I know this isn't something you can understand without asking questions, I respect that, there is a line though, about what you can and cannot ask. When the questions become less about learning and more about some backward view you have, then I feel the need to pull out the inner beast.
No I did NOT have sex to get pregnant.
Yes you can carry and deliver babies that have NO biological link to you.
Why can't they have their own children? They are lacking a uterus, its ok though, they are comfortable with having male genitalia.
No I am NOT worried about the children growing up gay. I don't view being gay as a handicap or a bad thing. From what I have learned through common sense, straight people raise gay children too, otherwise we wouldn't have gay people at all. I am way less worried about the fathers ability to parent their twins then I am about you feeling it is ok to ask this in front of your own children.
No I won't be sad, I am not giving up anything, I am adding to something.
Yes I get compensation, no I don't feel it is baby selling, see above, these children would have never been born if not for the actions of their parents. I am a vessel to help them achieve a goal they dreamed up.
I am off now to go bang my head against a wall.. take care

None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.
For every ***** out there like the one you mention above, know that there are loads of us who applaud, appreciate and commend what you are doing! You're a brave and generous woman...I'm so glad there are people like you!

I think what you're doing is amazing! I wish more people would stop to tell you that.
It always amazes me that people can be SO ignorant, especially around pregnant women. Combine that with my own hormones and the further along I get, the more I just want people to shut up. Unless they're going to tell me that I look "fabulous," like the nice old lady at Whole Foods last week.
Anyway, they suck and you rock. Please don't forget it.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
