A year ago, Ana was considering having a baby for a gay couple
until she learned they needed her eggs to make it happen. “I didn’t want to use my own egg, because the thing is, if it’s my own, then biologically that’s my kid. You then have to relinquish your parental rights to give them the child. I would be giving up my own child for adoption and I just couldn’t do that.” Ana says she would have had a baby for the gay couple if they would have found an egg donor.
Nothing was going to hold back Ana from having a baby for her friends. Although she had a tubal legation (“tubes tide”) after having her second child, the doctors assured them that since Ana’s eggs weren’t being used to create the embryo there wasn’t a problem. These days, Ana makes every move of her experience very public on Facebook:
June 14 • So the rump shots sucked. The meds have been painful as well.
June 15 • So I’m just resting up as I was inseminated today.
June 17 • Today I feel mixed emotions.
June 27 • Here is my moment of truth…Am I pregnant or not?
June 27 • Finally after months of hormone patches on my stomach, daily butt shots and pills, I AM PREGNANT!
June 29 • I have to say this whole surrogacy thing is fascinating.
On July 16 (sent from the fertility clinic in San Antonio) • Here for the moment of truth…how many babies are there? We have a winner!
The doctors informed Ana and her friends that they were having twins.
