Mum has offered to be my surrogate!

Hi everyone!

Well i had my first appointment at st marys yesterday and i was told i would not be able to carry a baby at all! So my only option now is surrogacy!
My mum told me that if i found an egg she would carry the baby for us and my mums friend has offered her eggs, the only problem is they are both 42! would this be a problem or would they be considered because i know them?

I seem to have alot of questions now but at the time i was just to upset

Hi!

You have a lovely Mum and a very lovely friend!

I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your questions, although I would 'think' that the age of the surrogate wouldn't be a problem.

The surrogacy section is a little quiet on here, so I don't know if anyone will know the answer. I've added a couple of links to sites (not FZ endorsed) that you may want to look at, and where you may find more answers.

Wishing you lots of luck on your journey.

Hope you find the answers! Maybe come and let us know - it would be interesting as I don't think many of us know very much about this issue!

It would also be great to follow a surrogacy story on FZ!

For a host surrogate 42 is generally fine, as long as good health, and preferably regular periods.

I doubt VERY much they will accept a 42 year old egg donor, the cut off is usually 35/36 for a known donor maybe a year or two more but I would be VERY surprised if 42 was tried.

There is a QandA for surrogacy here - http://surrogacy.a-little-wish.co.uk/sur…nd-answers.aspx

It is great that your mum has offered to help and that will be a huge weight lifted :)

Good luck with your journey :)
