I just started the process of being a gestational surrogate to a good friend of mine. I loved being pregnant but am a carrier of a genetic syndrome that I could potentially pass on to any biological children that I may have. My friend and her husband have been trying for a baby for years and have been through many failed cycles of IVF. I offered my assistance a year ago, and she finally took me up on my offer a few months ago. We just met with her doctor and are getting ready for blood tests/psychological counseling. Fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly! Good luck in your journey!
