My Life

jueves, mayo 08, 2003

Tonight's Friends episode hit on something I've always thought about. After discovering they can't conceive that easily, Chandler and Monica consider their options. Since Monica has always wanted to experience pregnancy, first they consider using a sperm donor. For reasons I won't get into here, I have a feeling it won't be the easiest thing for me to have children. Hopefully I'm wrong. Like Monica, I want to experience pregnancy if I'm going to have a child. I've always told myself though, that if once I get married I discover I can't get pregnant that easily, whether it's my problem or my husband's, I would consider adoption my only choice. I wouldn't want to raise a baby that is half-mine, half a guy who's not my husband. I'd rather give the chance to someone who, for whatever reason, doesn't have a home, or whom his/her birth parents can't raise. As much as I want to have a child who has my genes, I wouldn't feel right about surrogacy. I don't think there's anything wrong with it, I just think that if a baby is going to be biologically mine, I should be the one who's pregnant. I would be so jealous of the surrogate. I would like to think that I'd be able to be a surrogate for someone else though. I make no sense, I know. Going back to Friends... In the end, they go with adoption. That made me happy. Maybe I've been watching too much Discover Health, and too many episodes of Adoption Stories. I'm such a dork.. teehee!
