    Default Does anyone else's baby have a big nose on ultrasound?

    Or am I alone in this? I'm worried something is wrong with her

    My husband thought our baby had *no* nose, and stressed himself out for weeks , but it turns out she's got a perfect sniffer. I'm sure yours does, too!

    My friend had a 3D ultrasound done and her son's nose was very prominent - she joked about where he got that from. He was born about 2 weeks ago and he looks nothing like he did in the ultrasound! The nose is so cute!

    Quintens nose looks very large on U/S. His mouth does also. I think its just the imaging....i hope.

    I don't remember my DS's nose being big on U/S's, but his lips looked big sometimes - like all puffed out. He has very normal lips and nose This time - at my 12 week U/S baby looks like it has a big nose. One good thing I noticed a few days ago, while looking at NT scans and what they look for, is that this baby's nose has an apparent nose bone structure (very white on U/S is bone) - if they don't, I guess that's a clue that the baby could have Downs. So I was happy that his nose was big after that!

    well my u/s is in my siggie, as you can see my bubs has very prominent nose, lips and cheeks there but I think he is ADORABLE (sorry to blow my own horn) and he could look like pinnocchio and I would still think he was the cutest

    FYI I do have some friends who have a daughter and they saw her sons u/s and freaked out because his father has a HUGE nose (sorry but he does) and the baby looked like it had a big nose and they worried and worried but I can say seeing her son all these years later, it's a normal size and shaped nose.

    Don't worry, u/s aren't truly detailed enough for that.

    Our baby, according to Dh, looks like Homer Simpson. The only pic we have of her face is a straight on view and the cheeks are so puffy that it makes her look square, lol. The nose looks big too. But of course it is only 2D, which is distorted anyway.

    Try not to worry. If it is big, when Madison is born, you will love her no less or think she is any less beautiful.

    DD had a big nose on u/s and she's got this cute little button nose now.

    Keep in mind that the u/s pics can be distorted. DD always had her face smushed on my uterus.

    Rachael had a big nose on ultrasound as well, and she had a perfect button. My current bub had a big nose on her ultrasound as well...I'm assuming the outcome will be the same.
