relieved ds probably will not be short

I believe men of shorter stature have a hard time being treated fairly. Also, my doodyhead biofather is well below average height so I confess, I had some minor worries ds would wind up being below average height.

Some of my silly worrying is unfounded as I am 5'8.5" and DH is average height. DS is in the 60th percentile for height which is fine by me.He may be anywhere from 5'10 to 6' as an adult. :)

I'm actually pretty concerned my son will be short. I'm 5'7, so slightly above average for a female. But my husband is also 5'7, which is below average for a male. My son was only 32" at his 2 year appointment. He's a peanut.

I'm five foot, my husband is six foot.  So far, little girl comes in right at 50% and DR is predicting she will be about 5'3". Almost average!

 I am 5'3 and hubby is 5'6. The doctors are guessing my son will be 5'10

All the men in my family are tall - dad 6'2, brother 6'1, paternal grandpa and uncles 6'0, hubby 6'3, BIL 6'5, FIL 6'1.

Almost all the women in my family are short - mom 5'5, aunts 5'2, SIL 5'4, maternal grandmother 5'5.

But I'm 5'7 and my other SIL is 5'11, so tall genes are more likely :)

Ehh.. I don't know how it works. I was told my daughter would be at least my height or taller because I am 5'8 and her dad is 6'0, but she is consistantly in the 35% for height.

I guess it's different for chicks, I just figure she can do things I couldn't with my height, like gymnastics and ballet (which I had to quit).

My brother's son is a little taller than me at 16 and his dad is 6'3 but his mom is like 5'1. You never know I guess. Genetics are weird.

Great things come in small packages, including males.

My father was a Drill Sgt in the Army, he is 5'6 maybe 5'7.  My grandfather fought in WWII and was a great man, smart & kind & respectful & strong very strong & was short as well.

Sorry but you are ridiculous for looking down on "short" people.
