I dont know why Im even thinking about this but its been on my mind the whole time. My husband and I have very different coloring (he has olive skin and dark hair, i have light brown hair and pale skin, my family is tall, his is short, he has a strong chin, I have a weak one)and Im so curious to know what this baby will look like. Is that crazy? Its not like it matter or I get a say but Im dying to know.

Obviously I hope my child has the best of both of us but a part of me wants to see some resemeblance so I dont look like a distant aunt or babysitter.

Am I the only one?

I have been thinking about this a lot lately too. DH and I do resemble each other a lot though, but I am curious about those extended family genes. Both of us have dark curly hair and round freckly faces. And we both have stocky builds.
But at his family reunion last month I could not get over how much one of his nephews looks like him. Got me thinking about how my sister and dad have very dark complexions and straight hair and dark eyes. Just curious as to what this little booger will look like. Can't wait!

I'm right there with you Stephanie and I already have one kiddo to look at! For me, it's now a question of: Will this one look more like me, like DH, like DD or will she be completely her own person?

DD is blond haired like DH, but she has my hazel eyes - and her features are generally a really good mix of the two of us. I had a dream that this little girl was dark haired (like me) and blue eyed (like DH)...so we'll see what happens.

I cannot wait to see what she looks like! I've been imagining her to look more like my husband, since in the ultrasound photos she has what looks like his nose and grumpy eyebrows, but my weak chin and pouty lips. I can't stop obsessing about her hair and eye color though. There are a lot of possibilities... I can't help but hope she gets my dark green eyes, though!

I think about this all the time too! Stephanie- I know what you mean when you say you want there to be at least some resemblance. My SIL gets looked at with shock when she says that her 3 kids are actually hers! She has very light skin and they all have dark skin. Sometimes she even gets asked if she adopted them! I know it really hurts her feelings.

I think about this all the time, too! I can't wait to find out what traits she got from each of us. I hear all the time how I look so much like my mom, so I'm kind of hoping baby girl looks a lot like me as well, so we can share that.

I have brown eyes (courtesy of my bio-father) and no one else on my side of the family has brown eyes. I've spent the last 21 years feeling like a leper (You wouldn't believe how many people outright ask why you have brown eyes when no one else in your family does! Rude!).
I'd love for the baby to have my eyes, but I also really want the baby to have DH's blue eyes...
DH and I have almost the same skin tone, so I'm not really worried about that.

well, I know since the last ultrasound had a nice profile that the baby already resembles brother and sister. so I am guessing that she will look like me I'm just hoping that she will have dark hair like me. My husband is Dutch so my son has WHITE blonde hair. My daughter was born with almost black hair and it has turned to blonde. So I'm just HOPING for a dark haired child with green eyes!

We put Matthew and Callie's u/s pictures up next to each other and they have the exact same profile, so I bet she looks like him.

yes, it is so fun to wonder! My two boys are a combination of my dh and I. They look very similar to each other, everybody thinks they are twins b/c they are so close in age and look alike. So, I wonder if these two will look like them or not?

Also, they change so much over the fist year so that is fun to watch!

I'm totally curious. My DH apparently has some strong genes because both our children look more like him. We'll about about this next one though. Hey, good thing he is good looking, haha.
The one thing I do really hope for is that the baby will have blue eyes like me. DH, my son and daughter all have beautiful hazel and brown eyes, but it would be neat to share my blue eyes with one of my children.

You guys with your u/s profile compares are cracking me up. They all look like babies to me in there.

My husband has green eyes and I have blue so from what Im told we have a 100% chance fo either a blue or green eyed baby. If the baby comes out with brown eyes, I'm going to have some explaining to do. hehee

I think about what he will look like all the time.... and Ive also already got one to look at!

DD looks like a really good mixture of the two of us - DHs hair color, my skin tone, and eye color.... but features it gets blurry.... My nose for sure, but I think his eyes, lips and chin.
When shes only with me, people say she looks exactly like me - When only with him, People say exactly like him - but are torn when shes with both of us.

So.... Whos knows!?? I kinda hope he gets Ty's curls at least!!!

Both of my girls have not really looked like me at all. When they were babies everyone said they looked like my DH, but now I cant tell. Im so bad at that with my own kids. Someone elses kids I can look at them and be like, "Oh yeah, definitely looks like so n so..." but not my own, lol.

I cant wait to see what this little guy looks like. Since both of my girls look like my DH, he will probably look like me. Scary. lol!

One thing he is probably destined to have is light skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes.
