Talk about it...: These feelings can be normal. I recommend that you discuss your feelings openly with your partner, family & friends. Often talking about your feelings helps. If that isn't making you feel better talk to your md. Mom's of premature babies often feel guilty about the early birth - even when they did nothing wrong. If symptoms persist talk to your md and be screened for possible postpartum depression.

Cooking oil: While there are lots of remedies, the one that worked the best for me was cooking oil. It is edible and easily absorbed into the skin. I would apply a small dab on the nipples after nursing. Worked really well.

No: There is a slight increase risk of preterm labor in pregnancies conceived by ivf. Part of this is because of the risk of multiple gestations like twins and triplets. Recent studies show that even single pregnancies conceived by ivf have a slight increase risk of preterm labor. It is important to be followed closely by your doctor or cnm.
