What the heck is with this profile? I didn't notice it at the doc and they didn't say anything but why am I sitting here worrying that my baby is either a) disformed, b) has 2 noses, or c) has a cleft lip??!!!
Thank you MeganPixel for surprising me with this super cute siggy-you rock!
could be he's puckering his lips out, or sticking his tongue out, or doing something funky like that. The tech or doc probably would've picked up a deformity if it were that obvious, but maybe u should ask your doc just to get some peace of mind.
Anyway, the 2D u/s picks up too much of the skeletal structure, and not enough of the skin. I though that Caleb's head was shaped funny until I realized that I could only see part of his face in the picture, and the rest was just his skull. So, what I think happened is that the u/s is picking up the shape of the upper lip, but not enough of the bottom lip. I think what you see beneath the top lip is jaw structure. Or maybe he's even sticking his tongue between his lips, like someone else mentioned. I think he'll be absolutely normal! Don't stress yourself! The doctors would have noticed a deformity in the Level 2 u/s.
