People ask this question all the time. It’s hard not to *eyeroll* at it as I know it’s a perfectly legitimate question.
But sometimes, when I’m not in the mood, I get a bit sassy about it.
First, it’s not my baby. So I’m not giving anything up. I’m giving the baby back to their parents. Because I’m not a kidnapper.
The baby is not genetically related to me or my husband in any way. It’s not even the same race as us.
Second, if I wanted another baby, I would just have one. I wouldn’t go through all the trouble of getting pregnant with someone else’s kid and carrying it for 9 months and then trying to steal it when I know they are going to fight for it. It just sounds ridiculous. I’d literally just get pregnant with my own kid. My husband and I make really cute kids.
Third, if you feel like you could never give the baby up, then you should definitely not be a surrogate. : ) It’s okay if you feel like that, it just means surrogacy is not for you.
What do you think about this question? Could you give the baby up? ; )
