Emoblopedia: Third Party Reproduction

Welcome to the third party reproduction page of the emoblopedia. This section is written by men and women who have chosen donor egg/insemination or surrogacy as their path to parenthood. Some are also the product of third party reproduction themselves, but in the interest of space and the fact that the emoblopedia is housed on a blog about infertility and pregnancy loss, we have chosen to include only entries written from either those contemplating or actively utilizing this aspect of assisted conception as well as people who are parents after utilizing donor egg/insemination or surrogacy. We hope that you find reading these blog entries helpful and they bring you a modicum of emotional comfort. They may help you find words to express how you are feeling or show you the light at the end of the tunnel. If you have your own blog and would like to contribute to the emoblopedia, submit all links to entries to Melissa at

My name is Courtney. I am a 24 y/o Newlywed from Michigan. I found out at the age of 17 that I was infertile. I am suffering from Ovarian failure as well as premature menopause. My husband and I have decided to do the egg donation procedure to conceive our child. However the twist is....My younger sister will be the donor for us. We plan on doing the procedure in Aug of 08 if everything checks out ok with my sisters body. I am trying to deal with this in a positive way but having to realize that the baby will be my sisters and husbands biological baby is very very hard, however, I am extremely thrilled that my sister has offered her eggs to us. I am also overjoyed that I will be able to actually experience pregnancy. I plan on returning to this page to post an update of our procedure.
