In 2009, I learned that there was no realistic way my best friend would ever be able to become a father -- his greatest desire in life. I decided then that I would offer to be a surrogate for him (which didn’t sound realistic at the time). A year later, I made that offer. He accepted, and in Nov. 2011 I got pregnant.

I’m writing this blog because I’m not the typical surrogate. For one, in the terms of the trade, I’m an altruistic traditional surrogate (I’m unpaid and the egg is mine) with a totally open arrangement with the dads. Most importantly, though, this is my first pregnancy (NO ONE thinks this is a good idea; most surrogates already have their own kids).

Also, we’re all gay, so this is going to be the gayest baby ever.*

*Except for the children of those many, many other sets of three or more gays who decided to combine their powers to procreate...

Q: Would you mind if I linked your blog through mine?

Hi! No, I'd be delighted to be linked up anywhere -- it gives me a nice feeling of validation :)

I have to post this as a blog entry because my little question box is anonymous, so this is my only way of getting back to people who contact me through it. So now I've put a note on it: leave your email if you want a private response -->

Also, this person was specifically asking about my 'fetus size' posts. They are all conveniently organized with a 'fetus size' label, and can be found grouped together here!
