    There was a thread on here a few years back where a woman was convinced that the IVF bub she birthed wasn't her bio baby... Didn't get to hear the end of the story

    I’ve always had this weird feeling that DD1 isn’t mine.
    I don’t think it helped that every single person who met her as a baby, and even now, says she is her fathers double.
    We’ve since had a natural surprise Bub...and she looks totally different to her sister.

    It’s always played on my mind

    I remember that, I wish we knew the outcome.

    I’m kind of glad that one look at DD makes it obvious she’s mine. Although people also say she looks like DH (we had a donor).

    My heart absolutely broke for the couple as well. Particularly the woman who carried those babies, spent nine months loving them, worrying about them and then gave birth to them after who knows how long a period of infertility. It would be devastating.

    Not that anything could ever make this ok, but I would hope that the clinic has been forced to treat this couple for free until they have a baby or are themselves prepared to stop treatment for something other than financial reasons.

    Absolutely shocking for all involved, but the lady who carried the babies only to have them ripped away...my god, that poor poor woman.

    An inexcusable and careless mistake.

    I wouldn’t let that clinic anywhere near me again. They would be paying for my treatment elsewhere!

    Am I the only one totally horrified by this? How does a woman end up with embryos from 2 other women? Imagine getting through a twin pregnancy only to have to give your babies away?
    It’s horrific. That poor couple.

    Yeah.. I'm glad my kids look a lot like me too!
