How tall are you? Did the doctor predict your height when you were younger? were they right?

I'm 5'7"
The doctor predicted I'd be between 5'6" and 5'8" and I'm 5'7" so she was right on.

My sister is only 12 and is 5'5" almost 5'6" and the same doc predicted between 5'8 and 5' we'll see

  • I'm 5'5" the doc predicted 5"10. I have a brother who is 5'8" if he stretches, the doc predicted 6'4" for him. I have a cousin who is 4'9" that the doc predicted 5'11" for. Then I have another brother who is 6'1" and the doc predicted 5'11". So no I don't think the doc was ever right with anyone in our family.

  • I'm 5'3". I don't think the Dr. ever predicted my height. I'm curious to how tall my son will end up though. DS is only in the 25th percentile for his height the dr said, but he is built exactly like DH and he is 6'2". I wonder, at what age did your dr's give height predictions?

  • I'm 5'1' but if I stand real proud and tall I think I could gain an inch!At least that's what my doctor used to say to make me feel better about my height.Guess he knew even back then I wouldn't be opting for baketball champion..
