How Will My Baby Turn Out?

Dear Sara,

I am pregnant with my first baby. We used artificial insemination because my husband didn’t have any viable sperm. It took some time to adjust to everything and now we are happy to be pregnant. I don’t know why but I keep worrying about what kind of person my baby will be. Will he or she inherit some personality trait that will make problems? I can’t believe I decided on doing this and now I’m worrying about it.

Dear Eva,

Any pregnancy is a combination of genetics from both partners. Our control of this is nil (there are people who experiment with this but it’s not common). There are recessive genes that don’t show up until there is a right combination. Just because the sperm was donated doesn’t mean that it is flawed any more than if it was you husband’s. A lot of how your child turns out depends on your parenting and your own disposition. Your child learns from you how to act and behave. Be consistent and fair and give him or her lots of love. Every Mom worries about her baby. It just means you want the best possible life for your wonderful new baby.

Good luck.
-Sara

    PRAISE GOD

    DEAR EVA,
    TRY TO SEND POSITIVE AND GOOD THOUGHTS TO YOUR BABY. IT WILL DO THE BABY A WORLD OF GOOD. AS SOON AS YOU REALISE YOU ARE WORRYING, DECIDE CONSCIOUSLY AND REPLACE THEM WITH HAPPY BRIGHT THOUGHTS. YOU WILL BE AMAZED AT HOW MUCH THIS WILL HELP YOU AND YOUR BABY. SMALL FREQUENT SHORT PRAYERS WILL WORK WONDERS.
    A GREAT GRANDMOTHER.
