Not me, but oldest and youngest got my husband's concave butt. Right now, they're flat, but I worry as they get older it will look really weird. His back sticks out further than his butt does. Pants NEVER stay up. His underwear cant even stay up high, it all rolls down. They also have hips noticeably narrower than their shoulders, like him.

It's a small thing in the grand scheme.. but I hated not being able to find clothes that fit right. I still do hate it, actually.

and she'll be stuck wearing empire waist dresses and such.. so little choice when your hips are so far down from your shoulders.
My daughter is like this, except it's from my husband. She's 5, and can fit a 3T, so she's quite small. But for length she needs a 5 or small (depending on store), so she's a very little girl with a long torso.


I'm Incredible.

Re: Physical traits

Cankles. I'm not a big person but I have horrible cankles and my little guy has them too. They are cute in him now but I'm sure he will hate them when he is older!

DH and I both carry all our weight in our middles - classic apples - and so does DD. little round belly on a toddler = cute. Little round belly on a not-pg mom = not so cute
But she got DH's nice round butt :-). It is so round, in fact, that her 2t underpants are too big in the waist and totally too small in the rear
It's funny, I am Asian, DH is white. Since DD has "asian" facial characteristics everyone always says she looks so much like me. But if you look closely she is a perfect blend of MIL and FIL family traits, with very little that ACTUALLY looks like me!

Oh I hope DS didn't inherit this from me. I only have perfect skin while pregnant.

I really hope DD doesn't get her dad's huge nose!

For myself, I'm very petite, just shy of 5 feet. I struggled with it a lot growing up and although I'm okay with it now, (for the most part. I wouldn't pass up a few extra inches if they were easy to come by) I know DD will inherit my stature. She was tiny at birth and is still very small. I would feel worse if she was a boy though. I feel like its more difficult to be small and male than female.

I also hope she doesn't get my terrible teeth. I get cavities so easily!!
