hey girlies... so we went for our 2nd ultrasound yesterday (I'm 11 weeks) and while the baby was much cuter than at 8 weeks, it had hands and legs outstrectched, it's head was SO BIG. in the pictures the doctor sent home I'm looking at them and the head is so big and wierd shaped kind of! is that normal, I didn't get to ask my doctor b/c I didn't really notice it until we got home.

yes its normal hun! Your baby's head in not in proportion to its body yet. That will take more time. When you reach your 13th or 14th week, thats when the head starts to become more proportioned. ;-) The LO still has a lot of time to grow into its body, so dont' worry! I'm glad you got to see him or her.

lol, gabbysally I totally thought the same thing and it is completely normal :) I just had my 15 week scan and everything looks MUCH more proportional!

The babies head is usually the first thing that develops. It is completely normal. I have my daughters ultrasound pictures and she had an alien head, big and round on top but small and skinny on bottom. But she has an average side head now so no worries
