The price is going up for women to donate their own eggs to help other women have children, and demands for so-called "designer babies" may be on the increase as well.

Egg donation is an often painful procedure requiring a series of hormone shots, many doctor's visits, and dozens of tests.

Ads are tucked in campus newspapers across the country that say "help create a family," and "egg donors wanted -- earn up to 20,000."

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
