So - does that mean that for the next 4-1/2 months Cat will be switching from cooking to baking since she has a bun in the oven?

I saw her on Oprah last week and I thought she looked pregnant.

Lol Mike!

I wish I had seen her on Oprah. I didn't even know that she was gay, much less "married" and pregnant.

I don't care about the "married" or "lesbian" aspect, but geez - the logistics of those pregnancies. Definitely bizarre & mind boggling.

It doesn't sound bizarre to me. It sounds like it was well thought out and planned to have all the children be as much a part of both of them as possible.

Are you kidding? What does who's carrying whose egg have to do with togetherness? If that were true, there must be a lot of unhappy torn-apart surrogate moms out there. These two have made it one step up from a circus juggling act for no reason except for some odd personal gratification.

Sorry - & I do realize that this is just personal opinion - but I still vote for bizarre.

I guess we see things differently.

I see this as a way for both partners to participate in the birth of their child. One partner carrying the others egg provides a same sex couple an opportunity to share a very special event.

Yes - this is definitely one of those situations where we'll just have to "agree to disagree". While I do disagree with you, at the same time I do see your point.
