I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy 6 weeks ago, who was conceived using IVF. He was born 5 weeks early and rather abruptly (I had a C-section and never really got to experience labour).
Naturally, he is the light of our lives and that missing piece which has made our world complete.
However, when I look at him he just doesn't seem to look like either my husband or myself. And I just can't stop thinking; what if our embryos were muddled up with somebody else's. What if one day somebody comes and tells me that he is not mine and takes him away from me. I clearly remember them checking before my transfer, they checked my name, the father's name and DOB. But still what if. I've probably watched far too many films and documentaries where things like that happen.
Have any other of you IVF mother felt this way? Any other mothers has children who doesn't resemble themselves or their partners?
Could somebody just tell me that I am being ridiculous!?!?!
