Default Didn't know where to post this

I want to say in advance that I'm not trying to offend anyone or spark any debate. I have held this in for awhile just because of the subject,but I really believe the gesture is great!

As many of you know or remember I have had many miscarriages after my tubal reversal. I have been told by 1 RE that I have bad eggs based on a single test. I have a hard time with that do to the fact that I ovulate wonderfully and get pregnant quite easily.But that isn't my point...Lol

My daughter who is 16 knows the struggles my dh and I have gone through with ttc'ing. and that I was told to find an egg donor.
Well she wants a little brother or sister (even though she has a 12yo brother)
She said to me out of the blue that she would give me one of her eggs to have a baby when she is old enough to give one to me! I just about lost it right there. I looked at her and was shocked and said "What?"
She said that she didn't think it was fair that I was having all these problems in having a baby with her step dad when it was so easy to have them with her father. She said Thomas (my dh) wants one so bad (he has no bio children) he deserves one and for me to be happy!

I know children are great loves and caring souls but to be 16 and understand to a point in what she is saying entails...was lifting to me! I'm glad to know that I raised my daughter to be that caring to others and selfless.

I have been holding that in for months,I only told dh. Didn't dare tell none of my family but for those of us with some sort of hinder on ttc'ing I thought the act would lift some spirits.

I think it's amazing that your daughter even thought of something like this and could be so selfless and sympathetic to your struggles. I certainly was not that way when I was 16. I think it goes to show what am amazing job you have done raising her and you should be proud.

What a wonderful thing for her to say.

I was surprised when I had my own ttc struggles, that two different people offered to carry a baby for me, without me saying anything to them. And these weren't best friends either-- just people in my life who knew how bad I wanted to be a mom.

Whether you'd take the egg or not, it was a wonderful thing for her to offer.

I think that's an amazingly selfless offer. You should be proud of her regardless of how you decide to proceed.
