I feel ya!  Although people say that my daughter looks a lot like me now, she didn’t start to develop my features until around 2 (she just turned 2 in September).  At birth, she didn’t really look like either of us.  After a few months, she darkened up and looked JUST LIKE my husband!  But now, she’s looking more like me.  It’s funny how children go back and forth with who they resemble…and then they hit a stage where they just look like themself and no one else.  🙂  Whoever your baby looks most like, I’m positive he’ll be absolutely beautiful regardless!

Addie looks just like me, but she’s built just like her dad, tall and thick.  You just never know which features baby will end up with.  🙂

@ladyox: i’ve always heard the same thing. biologically kids should look more like their dads so their dads identify them as “theirs.” Also, keep in mind that kids change! Its weird but when I was little everyone said I looked like my dad, but as I got older I look a LOT like my mom.

My son looks just like my husband.   He’s four months old and strangers who pass us in the store even comment on it.   He looks nothing like me, but I like the way the hubs looks so I don’t mind.  🙂

Everyone has constantly said how much they see my partner in our son, but I think a large part of it has to do with the fact that people will perceive what they want to perceive (besides that babies change SO much in such a short span of years it is a little soon to say with just an ultrasound).

FWIW I can see a lot of myself in my son, whether others can see it or not.
