liz42: wow! You are a generous individual! What a lucky friend! I didn’t realize you carried his son too. That must of been an interesting experience to have actually carry the child too. None of this comes from a condemning attitude, please believe. I am just extremely curious. Does your nephew know or is this something his father is waiting to explain later on?
I assumed your friend used a surrogate carrier. How did you handle actually delivering your biological child?

Also, I’m not too familiar with drugs needed for ivf but did you worry about any of the potential side effects for later on when you decide to maybe have your own kids?
I ask because this is an ongoing discussion with my fi and me. We like to discuss hypothetical (ie how he would feel if I carried for one of our sisters or he donated sperm for one of his brothers)

mshoneybeespgbuzz: My nephew knows. We handled delivering him pretty well. I actually had a waterbirth and was attended by a midwife. It really helped with the pain and made everything easier. He was there the whole time. I was still in pain and was constantly grabbing his arms and hands. He was also there to press on my lower back when it hurt.
And I know someone will ask eventually, so I’ll say it now. I was wearing only a bikini top and yes, he saw my lady parts and butt for the first and only time. I didn’t care (and you won’t if you have one), I just wanted it out of me!
About the drugs, I didn’t take any ivf because his sperm was inserted directly.
