Hi Ladies,

Just got access to the donor bank and right off the bat I see someone that looks facially like me the most. The only issue is that she is much taller than me. She is 5'10'. Her maternal mother and grandmother however were both 5'4 or 5'5. Her father is 6'2. My Dh is only 5'9 so on the shorter side for a male. I'm 5'5'. No one would believe it if my child turned out to be very tall. It would not make sense. What are the chances with the donor being 5'10 and my DH being 5'9' that my child would be very tall? I will say that my own mother is 5'10 and my father is also the same height but I came out 5'5'. Any thoughts?
