It turns out that Thomas Beatie is not the first person to do this, the article mentions others before him but for some reason those cases didn't become big news like this has.

The second article states that "They wanted to start a family but health problems meant (Nancy) Roberts could not conceive." In the first article I posted it stated that Roberts had a hysterectomy and that is why Beatie decided to carry the child. The second article also states that Beatie stopped taking his hormone injections and waited for his period to return before trying to conceive.
