YOUR ATTENTION, PLEASE!


The Biggest Ask forum will be carefully monitored by admin. Users may be asked to re phrase their comments or questions if it comes across as insensitive or harsh. You must be signed in to contribute. Click here to register.

There are two major rules enforced:

  1. Be respectful
    Our aim is to be a place where intended parents and surrogates can get unbiased information about surrogacy in peace. Please refrain from judging others or criticising their choices. Our admin will follow closely and delete any disrespectful comments.
  2. Respect each other's privacy
    Being part of this community requires mutual trust. Authentic and honest discussions will make this forum amazing, but many things said might be private and sensitive.

What's shared here should stay here.

How the Forum works:

  1. Users can earn points:
    • 5 points for starting a conversation that is relevant to surrogacy (limited to one question a day users can ask more questions but they just get 5 points for one)
    • Awarding 5 points for answering a question AND getting a "like". Every additional "like" the person gets earns them 1 additional point.
    • Every week, all users are awarded 5 likes to distribute as they choose. The likes don't roll over so it's just 5 likes a week that they can distribute.
  2. Once a user earns 100 points, we get notified and you'll receive a $100 amazon gift card.
  3. Getting a certain number of points will get you the rank of "experienced surrogate" or "experienced intended parent".

The Biggest Ask Forums For Surrogates Journaling through the journey

    Did you journal/document through your journey? If so did you use a specific book or just a regular journal?

    I do journal through my journeys to gift to my intended parents at the end! I found it better to just use a cute blank journal I found and I wrote entries and also tape in memories and ultrasounds etc from throughout the journey! ❤️ I love that you are going to journal throughout your journey too!! It goes by so quickly it’s so nice to have it written down!

      I think it’s the best gift you can give other than the baby. Then they always have those memories to look back on.

    I documented on my phone and told myself that I would go back and put it all into a journal to gift my IPs at the end of the journey and that just… never happened. Lol I still plan to do it, it will just be very belated. I’ve seen a TON of cute journals specifically for surrogacy on Etsy and even Amazon, but they all seemed to be missing things that I would want to include and included other things that I wouldn’t want in there. I think everyone’s journey is so unique that it’s hard to find a surro-specific journal that will fit everyone’s wants/needs, so I plan to go with a blank journal and add in the things that are important to me & my IPs.

      I agree so much! I have ordered some from Amazon and returned them because it didn’t have everything I wanted. Same thing with Etsy. I think I will do the same and make my own.
