Amanda and Rhonda are two women who make the big life decision to carry other women's babies. Both must endure physical and emotional stress in an attempt to help deserving people start new families.
not to mention, what are her and her husband doing to be sure to not get pregnant while trying to get pregnant with someone elses baby. what would they do if shes like. ohh im pregnant. but wait what is its chris' and not hill billy tom ha
Please don't be an idiot, please.
Sarah that's so true!
I know, right? It honestly makes me wonder if True Life did that on purpose. "Ok, here's how to do it. Alright, now here's how not to do it!"
Both of them seemed to be generally uneducated about the whole process. The first woman seemed to have no clue that by inserting two embryo's, she could get pregnant with twins, and would have sporadic contractions and need to be on bedrest. The 2nd woman needs to understand that if this baby was going to be biologically hers, they need to have legal protections that they cannot get without an agency/lawyer/doctor involved. Of course the married couple is going to say, "We'll see you at birthdays, weekends, holidays!!" because it's what you want to hear, but when the baby is born, everything changes.
LOL at "hillbillys baby gravy!"
I find this episode highly disturbing. First of all, pregnancy is very hard on your body so I dont know why you would want to go through it without the reward of having your own child in the end with your own husband. Second, Rhonda should read the risks associated with being MORBIDLY OBESE and pregnant. It is highly dangerous to the baby. And the way she is going about it is horribly trashy. Seriously lose some weight and get a real job.
Ick, I know with a big nasty syringe- she had to stick that thing up her vag, I hoped they at least cleaned it first!
I can hear the video but cant see it!!!
By that logic, cheating on her husband would be okay since her body isn't his property. She should never have done this in the first place, especially when her husband is so uncomfortable with it. (And rightly so!)
I wonder if she even made Tom get an STD test first. I doubt it. So gross.
True Life: I'm a Surrogate, featuring one woman who is not a surrogate.
I LOL'ed at "I feel like I need to wash my hands for some reason" ....uhmm maybe because you just handled a syringe of that hillbilly's baby gravy! >_< YUCK
This is an urban myth started by some obese lady. Any doctor will tell you that if you're overweight, or worse, obese like Rhonda, your chances of getting pregnant AND successfully carrying the baby to full term are much slimmer than those of a woman of a healthy weight. Being overweight is just as bad as being underweight.
Great example of surrogacy the professional way, and the ghetto way.000aI'm glad that ghetto girl didn't get pregnant, she needs to take care of her own family before trying to help another one out. Did you see all those clothes & blankets piled up on her couch??! She can't even clean when MTV commin' over, she needs to get her priorities straight before thinking having kids is an answer.000a000a"I feel like I need to wash my hands." I gagged!!!
Ashley, I by no means don't mean all overweight people can't get pregnant, but if I was overweight and having trouble getting pregnant, losing weight would be the first thing I'd do.
I wish they would bring up adoption more in this episode. There are nearly a million kids in need of a home in the United States... not to mention the many, many more around the world.
To add you would also have to trust in, Rhonda's case, that the guy's sperm doesn't contain and STDs. o.o Very risky very.
Dude I know I wouldn't be able to carry someone's child knowing it was half mine and I would have to eventually give it up. Would rather carry someone else's fertilized egg. o.o And I think that it is risky not going through an agency because you could be stuck with another child and you cannot do the in-vitro.
That is some trailer trash mess I undertand you wanting to help but you should only do this professionally yuck !!
