This was the response I got from a fellow Girl Scout parent when I asked her how she was feeling and whether she would like the *pack and play* I was finished with for the new baby.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yikes">:<br><br>
Then she smiled and said, "I'm a surrogate." What a relief, and how interesting. This is her 6th surrogate pregnancy and she has 3 children of her own. People can be very surprising!

Wow, so nine pregnancies? She must be better at birthing than I've ever been! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
That's very cool, though.

<div style="font-style:italic;">I wouldn't be embarassed. That isn't something YOU could have known.<br><br>
It is kind of neat, but not something I could do.</div>

I would have been embarassed if it turned out she wasn't pregnant <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

My bestfriend loved being pg. but doesnt want more kids. She has considered surrogacy. I know I could not do it personally, its such an unselfish act, truly!

I could not do it. I know if I went through 9 months of pregnancy I would think of that baby as MINE. It would break my heart to hand it over to some other mama after labor and delivery.<br><br>
No sir. I am not that selfless of a person.

Exactly how I feel. But I sure think it's wonderful that she (and others) can do that.

That's funny! I can't imagine what a giving person she must be to have had 6 surrogacies!

I can imagine being that selfless, but I hate being pregnant. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> If it were fun and easy for me (and if I weren't a repeat c-sec mom and thus limited in my number of pregnancies), I'd absolutely consider it.<br><br>
I don't get that bonded to the baby until a while after the birth, at least I didn't with my son.

I learned my lesson early in life (Jr High) NEVER assume a woman is pregnant no matter what. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Even if she look like this. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/belly.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="belly">
