I'm only looking into this at them moment as really don't know much about the process or costs. Also, don't know whether I'd be lucky enough to find someone either as my case is quite different to others.
What do people think out there? My situationis this: I did IVF for 4 years, after 14 ivf cycles and 2 ectopic pregnancies where both my tubes were removed I finally had a successful pregnancy. I am still over the moon and can't believe my dream finally came true, after years of perseverence and heart breaks. Anyway, my labour experience was unlike any other and apparently I had the most severe case of pre eclamsia my hospital had ever seen (I was told 1 in 10,000). Anyway, I had a myriad of complications, high blood pressure, severe pre eclamsia and massive blood loss which led to an emergency hysterectomy. After going through all this I was so happy to learn that I had had two perfectly healthy baby boys! But the perfect ending to my story hasn't ended yet as I had expected that I would go back to IVF and give my 4 frozen embryos the same chance at life that my twins had. Only this isn't possible for me now that I no longer can carry a baby. I feel bad for even posting this as I can remember how I felt when I thought I might never have a child and now here I am asking what people might think about me finding a surrogate for my remaining embryos.
I guess, I feel that my embryos had passed all the initial hurdles and now only need a home to help them grow into the beautiful baby or babies they were intended to be. I would just hate for them to be discarded because I couldn't afford to keep storing them and then live to regret that I didn't try and give them a chance at living.
Please let me know what you think.
Also, for those women out there looking for a surrogate, may your dream come true. There is nothing more deserving than a woman who longs to be a mother. And there are no words to describe a woman who helps make this dream come true by becoming a surrogate. I'm still not sure what I will do and would in no way want to hinder someone elses dream from coming true when I already have twin babies.
