    Default Paranoia about fertility clinic

    I think most of you probably know that DH and I did IUI to get pregnant.

    Ever since I found out it worked though and that we were pregnant, I've been super insane paranoid that the baby isn't DH's. I know it makes absolutely NO sense to think that. I mean, they label EVERYTHING super securely and there is a trail of evidence that follows all samples from start to end so nothing ever gets mixed up.

    But still...I'm worried that they did. I've read too many horror stories about mix ups at fertility clinics.

    It's something I haven't talked about because I know it's silly, but I have mini panic attacks about it a lot. I just want baby to get here and look like DH!!

    I can only imagine... Add Preggers hormones and I imagine its only worse. Hugs! I'm sure it'll be ok.

    Thanks. The sucky part is I can't do anything BUT wait. I mean, we would love the child no matter what, but the stress associated with it IF we suspected the child wasn't DH's...I can't imagine. Maybe we would just ignore it? I mean, the amount of legal work and fighting... we probably wouldn't get any compensation either way anyway because of all the wavers we sign for the procedure.

    Did they not show you the labelled sample with your husband's name on it, when they did the iui?

    Everytime we tried IUI they made us confirm the name matched.
    Are the stories that you have heard Canadian stories?? Did you have this concern before you did IUI?


    ETA: I hope that didn't come across harsh!! As a fellow Ontarian who has done IUIs I just remember being impressed with how many checks were in place to ensure the sample you got was yours. (And this was at an RE that I was not impressed with) -
