Thanks for sharing your story. Your feelings aren’t strange at all – they’re called “survivor’s guilt”. Granted, we’re talking about infertility and not near death, but it’s the same concept. Why do you get to “win” while others “lost”? It’s a fear that it was random, it wasn’t anything you did, and you therefore can’t duplicate the good results in another situation. You won the coin toss of the universe. 

I think one eventually comes to just accept the goodwill, and be happy, while continuing to be grateful. If you are superstitious, I’m sure there are things you can do in your culture (every culture has them) to ward off bad luck/evil spirits/etc… just to feel better by hanging a picture or tossing salt or spitting three times. I wish you a happy and healthy 9 months and a lovely baby at the end of it all :).
