Will a child born through IVF gain my personality traits?

Q: I have recently conceived through an IVF procedure and am in the 4th month of pregnancy. I had the problem of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and hence opted for an egg donation. I know that my genes will not be present in my baby, hence am convinced that my baby's features will not resemble with mine. However, I am curious to know if there is a possibility of baby adapting some habits of mine. Will my thinking and my lifestyle during pregnancy have an effect on baby's behaviour?

A:Doctors usually match the appearance and blood group of donor and recipient. After delivery the baby blends with the family.
