I think what people are trying to say, or what I was trying to say anyway is that many of us had the same fears about what pregnancy would do to our bodies when we were the same age as you are now. Eventually, though the desire to have a child overode those fears and that this is what happens to most women. If it doesn't happen to you then maybe having a biological child isn't for you. It isn't something you should do just to please someone else.

Yes, there are definite changes to the body. Everyone is different though. My advice is to not gain more then 25 pounds, try to stick around 20. Its hard to lose the weight after you have put it on. If your actually contemplating surrogacy for the vein reason of keeping your body in tact, well, my thought is that your too selfish to even have a child. If you want to adopt, I think its great and totally respect that, but using surrogacy because your vein about your looks, seems wrong. Surrogacy is meant for couples who cant concieve.

I've done google, but again I just wanted to hear from real life experiences Sometimes information is fishy like the bone breaking thing, which apparently I have discovered does happen, but it's more often bruising and fractures, the bone actually breaking is not as common. It's still scary and is on my negatives list of giving birth.
I would love to adopt and I know I won't regret it, but a relationship is about compromise and my fiance' really wants "one of our own", so I'm trying to open minded and am starting to consider it, it's not that I don't want a kid, I do, it's just the pregnancy part I don't want. I don't want the sickness, aches, pains, mood swings. I guess apparently that's considered wrong on here.....
