Comparing my face to my son's
2 Attachment(s)
My SO is convinced our son looks just like me and all he got were the ears lol. I don't think he looks like me, just that he has my nose. What are your thoughts? SO is moping around so I'd love to show him things that do not look like me. Obs didn't have 4D scans back in the day but this is my 5 day old picture

Oh bless him! Tell him not to worry, babies are squishy on 4D scans and change so much as they grow up! I came out the spitting image of my dad but by the time I was one, I looked a lot more like my mum and still do! My nephew was also all dad as a newborn but now he's a real mix of both parents.

I can def see a resemblance though, I think he certainly might look like you! But tell your OH not to mope, you can't really tell until they are here and start to grow!

I struggle to see either of us in my 4D scan.. I think maybe a bit more me but it's certainly not obvious!

Aww he's adorable. It's hard to tell from 4D scan. My scan with ds1 he had a squishy fat nose and chubby cheeks, but came out with the tiniest dot of a nose and barley any chub at all :haha:

Oh he's so cute!

My son looked like my double on his 4d scan. When he was born he looked EXACTLY like his dad. They still have so much changing a nd growing to do, tell him not to worry.

Awww!! I am not sure if he looks like you or not from this pic but he is so cute!!! And so were you :)

Awww thanks ladies. That's true. I was just thinking at the 16w scan he looked EXACTLY like a mini me of SO. He was still moping about it by the time we went to bed lol.

With dd2 she looked exactly like dd1 but when she came out she looked so different that I had a hard time believing she was mine , it was weird I felt like I didn't even know this little stranger..

I do think you look EXACTLY the same. I'm not sure if that will still be the case or not - kids' looks change sooo much so quickly. My oldest looked exactly like me at birth (if I were a little alien baby), but he kept going from looking like me to looking like OH and just back and forth. He's 5 now and definitely favors me, but who knows what he'll look like later on? My second looked like OH since birth and has my face shape but looks EXACTLY like OH otherwise. It's crazy. He got ONE physical attribute from me, and that's it. lol. I did all that work for an almost-clone of OH. ;) ;) ;)

This was similar to my experience.

On scans she looked really like my OH, everyone commented on it. On her final 2d growth scan we got a face on view and she looked like me.

When she was born, she didn't look like her scan pics. I was actually in shock when I saw her as she looked so different to how I imagined her to look.

By about a week old she was her daddy's double. By about 4 months she started to look more like me, right through to recently (18m) and now she is the double of my sister.

Even now, she switches based on her facial expression. It's great to see how she changes!

My youngest two are half white half Filipino and it is wild to hear what people say about who they look like... most say they look like my husband, but some say they look just like me. I think it depends what part of the face people tend to focus on.

I made a photo collage to show how much they've changed since birth. Our first together, Koah, came out looking so much like his dad, and now everyone says he looks so much like me, plus he has porcelain white skin now! Zephyr also looks so different already than when he was born.. again everyone says he looks like his dad but I dont agree, I think Zephyr looks more like me and Koah looks more like his dad lol. I can also take pictures of my boys from different angles on the same day and they almost don't look like the same kid.

Your baby boy's ultrasound does look a whole lot like your baby picture! Only time will tell once he is born, it changes so much! Either way you know he will be gorgeous 😊 but I think there is a good chance his daddy will see more of himself in there as time goes on.
