    My workmates are the only people that don't know. I showed some of them the 3D scan pics and got the 'OMG they look just like you - the nose - the cheekbones !' Lol

    There is a donor sibling website that may facilitate connecting:
    https://www.donorsiblingregistry.com...istry?faID=190. This link should pick up Cape Fertility registrants.

    You will probably continue to get these comments. People see what they want to see.
    Even at 6 months of age I get it regularly with our two poppets...😁. Some have even suggested they look just like my twin brother and I...
    It's funny really because the donor we ended up with was suggested to us purely on proven success and her profile pics aren't anything like me at all 🤐.
    My mum (who has known all along about the DE stuff ) has frequently said if we hadn't told her and just presented them as our babies she would never have thought otherwise as they have always just seemed 'familiar'.

    Wow Miss Sagi the resemblance between you and your DD is uncanny. There's still so much for us to learn about epigenetics. There's an interesting article about how recipients of donated eggs might have an influence on whate genes are 'turned on' in their child http://www.bionews.org.uk/page_46274.asp and it highlights a great example in horse breeding:

    it's not uncommon to implant a pony embryo into the womb of a horse. The foals that result are different from normal ponies. They're bigger. These animals' genotype – their genes – are the same as a pony's, but their phenotype – what their genes actually look like in the living animal – is different. The implication of epigenetics is that the child inherits characteristics from the woman who carries the child even if the original DNA comes from a donor egg. In other words the birth mother influences what the child is like at a genetic level - it IS her child.'

    They are gorgeous Miss Sagi!

    I can see a sibling resemblance in them - maybe it's a bit like mine. Fleeting looks and small likenesses remind you of the other...

    Are their personalities the same or different?

    Blinky, they're adorable. I can see the resemblance in them and I think they look more like you than DH.
    With mine, their personalities are totally different.
